A best in class Swan 65 demands a topflight skipper. Having taken part in every classic offshore race you can think of, Philippe has found his spiritual home aboard Venator. In his previous life Philippe has sailed over 200,000 miles around the world and famously sailed with Alex Thompson on Hugo Boss. Sailing aboard the Swan 65 combines Philippe’s desire for speed coupled with the beauty and sophistication of such a classic. We couldn’t ask for a more perfect host.
Wake up to a breakfast table laden with the finest coffee, warm pastries and fresh fruit; there’s nothing quite like the ocean air to start your morning off right. Relax on deck with a book, enjoy a dip in the sea or head to the nearest town to discover local markets and pick up fresh produce for lunch. Come lunchtime, sail along the coast and drop anchor when the feeling takes you; the joy is truly in the discovery of somewhere new and unexpected.
Whether you choose to enjoy dinner on board, find a hidden gem onshore or head out on a night sail, these are evenings where cherished memories are made. Turn down the lights and spend the evening beneath the stars; nothing quite compares. Aboard Venator, the days and nights can be spent however you wish. Whether you choose to adventure and explore or simply watch the world go by, the choice is yours.
