We operated shortly the “Eagle” a 33 feet (10m) old styled cruiser sailing yacht as our adventure sailing cruising platform. The skipper is a marine biologist and scientist, scuba diver and film maker using the yacht for researching marine medicine topics and doing adventure film making, which means that our “Eagle” was a tiny lab equipped with all diving stuff like compressors, scuba tanks and lab devices for marine research, aerial and underwater film making in 4K/UHD.
The boat was very safe and fully equipped with radar, sonar, echo, radio, several chart plotters, auto-pilot and all required security devices and of course was technically in very good condition. It is a classical boat but very safe in ruff seas with average speed between 5 to 7 knots under engine and also when only sailing.
Operation area was around the islands of the Aegean Cyclades mainly from Syros, Paros, and Naxos, Ios, Milos and around Chania on Crete because there we had some very interesting and exiting beaches and ship wrecks for diving. Also are Paros and Naxos islands the top destination for diving and kite-surfing in Greece with a dream-like beaches.
The good thing in the Cyclades and on Crete is that you can reach many island harbors and marinas on different islands just in view hours or max full day by sailing or motoring.
Balos lagune. You will never forget this dreamlike place.
