LATITUDE BY VRIPACK
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 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.
