Adventure yacht for an adventurous spirit
It was around Christmas time when Anil Thadani, a Singaporean businessman, took ownership of Latitude and got together with his Captain, Sean Meagher, to plot their first adventure on the new yacht. Thadani, a seasoned yacht owner, had had enough of cocktails on white sandy beaches and sedate cruises in gentle waters. Been there, done that.
What he craved now was a challenge, and the chance to photograph wildlife in far-flung places. Seated in Latitude’s main salon, the two men pored over a map of the world. They were berthed in Florida at the time, and after some consideration, Thadani suggested Alaska. Captain Sean proffered the options: they could sail south and pass through the Panama Canal; or go north, but that would involve navigating the infamous Northwest Passage.
Thadani, whose craving for adventure was very real, didn’t hesitate for a second. They would be taking on the Passage.
