Yacht of the Week: James Bond's Regina
Posted: February 14, 2013 | By: Lisa Mylchreest [Sail-World.com]
While some of us labour to put on our own antifoul to save the cruising budget, others are doing it a lot easier. If you don't want the hassles of never-ending maintenance, chartering a yacht when you have the time is a great alternative. And then there is Regina:
Regina happens to be the largest of private yachts built in the Bodrum district of Turkey, hub of hedonistic sailing in the waters which also edge many bays of the Greek Islands.
Wherever Regina berths she attracts a gaggle of onlookers, snapping shots. Even other cruisers respond to the allure of this gulet-style yacht, the epitomy of style on the Turkish coastline.
Unlike many gulets sailing in these waters, who last for a mere ten years before they are swapped for new, she is made of high tensile steel and finest mahogany and burmese teak to achieve a one-of-a-kind classic schooner with utmost luxury amenities and water toys.
