Life on board

Most of the time will be spent in remote places where equipped ports are the exception, so be prepared to spend most of the time on the boat and stop at anchor.

Refueling is done at the start of each cruise and it will not normally be possible to replenish supplies during the voyage. This also applies to water, which must be used sparingly.

The drinking water will be stored in the on-board tanks, from which it is automatically filtered and purified.

Meals will be prepared on board by the participants and will be substantially of Italian style: an occasion for convivial life is always welcome and eaten in common, whenever possible.

During offshore navigation the crew will be divided into various guards (shifts) that follow one another without interruption (navigation on the high seas obviously continues during the night).

When the places and the weather allow it, you can go on shore trips or excursions by rubber dinghy, snorkelling and walking.

When the stages are short, we leave early in the morning, sometimes even before breakfast if there are interesting destinations to be reached early, and we try to find an anchorage before sunset, thus maintaining "terrestrial" rhythms as much as possible.

Coastal routes or ocean crossings will have different duration and characteristics depending on the areas in which Best Explorer will find himself navigating his wandering around the world.

We find ourselves with groups of old friends plus sea lovers and new friends who have chosen to share a common passion with us.

Nature lovers, sportsmen, photographers or just curious: everyone has found and will find the opportunity to experience extraordinary emotions.
