When Cyclone Pam tore through the island nation of Vanuatu in the South Pacific last year, the 73 metre Silver Yachts Dragonfly was there to help. In just one of the ways that yachts could help the cyclone-ravaged region, Dragonfly was quick to respond by transporting medical aid and doctors to the remote areas that were in dire need of care.
It helped that some of the crew were medically trained as well. A stewardess on board Dragonfly is a doctor, the yacht's captain Mike Gregory said, and five more of the crew were trained medical technicians. Between this and a shoreside security team and ex-Navy seals joining the mission, the locals were in good hands as this superyacht came to the rescue.
