GENE MACHINE a Limited Editions Amels 180, cruised 9,000 nautical miles over two-and-a-half months, beginning in France and ending in Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago. The 180-footer traveled to 10 countries with big-city stops in London, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Bergen.
Captain Fraser Gow explains how this 55-metre AMELS 180 has become a globe-trotting icon for a new generation of yacht owners who want to see the world.
“We’re lucky that GENE MACHINE’s owner is adventurous and happy to share photos of the yacht and the places we go. It’s unusual in our industry, and people often think that GENE MACHINE must be for sale or charter, but she’s not! The owner and his family spend 5-6 months on board every year; he’s passionate about yachting and always keen to go beyond the basic Mediterranean itinerary.”
