Imagine dispatching a $20 million asset into debris-strewn waters and doing so after your insurance company had declared: “No way will we cover you.” There was no shortage of superyacht owners willing to take this risk last September, after it became clear just how badly the Northern Bahamas had been hit by Hurricane Dorian. Some yachts steamed straight to the affected area, and others, like 50-metre Hospitality, raced back to Fort Lauderdale to gather essential supplies such as generators, medicines and even nappies. I’m really pleased I got the chance to sit with the owner and crew of the boat for our story. Despite the emergency assistance rendered, all are agreed the job is far from done. The best way you can help is to go there. This issue lands in peak season for the Bahamas, and if you’re considering cruising the area, don’t hesitate. For inspiration, take a look at our itinerary exploring the Out Islands. You might not have been in a position to help post-hurricane, but you can now – simply by having a good time. Imagine that.
