There’s a running joke in the BOAT International office about me and rivers. Whenever I bring up the idea for a feature on the world’s superyacht-friendly waterways, eyes start rolling like a ship in a big sea, and then the muttering starts: “He’s banging on about rivers again.” But I finally managed to get my way this month after convincing the team that there’s so much more to cruising than coastlines. Sometimes a yawning river mouth will open before you and the itch to explore it is irresistible. Just the idea of nosing your boat into the Amazon... how can you not be seduced by that? We also take a look at the Mekong, St Lawrence and a couple of rivers in Borneo that I bet you’ve never heard of, but which are navigable for big yachts. You could even get a little more National Geographic by advancing science while you’re exploring. With projects such as REV Ocean and OceanXplorer (formerly Alucia 2) turning the spotlight on ocean research and conservation, we have investigated how you too can contribute to our understanding of the seas (and rivers).
