Skipper's Secrets: 5 superyacht captains share their favourite secret spots

1 of 5 1/5

Captain Antares Hazelton, Pure Bliss


Captain Antares Hazelton, of 36.6 metrePure Bliss, reveals the joy of transiting one of northern Europe’s inland waterways

Having spent the majority of my career navigating the high seas, one of my fondest memories in yachting was discovering the 102nm Göta Canal. Built in the 19th century, it meanders through rolling fields and delicate birch groves, linking a number of large lakes and rivers in the centre of Sweden to provide a route from Gothenburg, in the west, to Söderköping on the Baltic Sea.

The superyacht we transited the canal with was the largest to have made the trip, with a 6.7m beam. The 66 locks and bridges allowed just centimetres of clearance and kept the crew busy.

Exit the canal in Gothenburg and discover Sweden’s stunning west coast archipelago by superyacht. Edge carefully through narrow sections of the canal, which weaves through fields and birch groves.
