Goddess Of The Sea
Touted as the world's largest private yacht, the Athena, (www.yachtforums.com/forums/royal-huisman-yacht) is here for servicing or repair.
Classic, uber high tech with lovely bowsprit and stern, this is a three masted schooner with gaff rigging and more. The masts are clinical looking but at 61 metres high would need to be indestructible and are a different story under sail.
The movie, Master and Commander or The Far Side of the World, is a successful swashbuckling adventure on the high seas and more, the soundtrack is a real bonus and includes works from Yo Yo Ma and his cello.
