After an intensive refit and a maiden voyage of more than three weeks in August 2021, this beautiful classic yacht was ready to move to the Mediterranean and start her second cruising season.
Cruising the Mediterranean
On May 18th 2022 it was time to depart from the Amsterdam Yacht Services Shipyard at Zaandam. Our delivery crew was ready for this 10 days voyage. The weather in the English Channel didn't really cooperate and unfortunately the stabilizers had a sensor error and were out of use.. But this old lady, a De Vries Lentsch 1964 built twin screw gentleman yacht, performed her duties and the more South the yacht came the better the weather. MY Raider arrived Valletta, Malta on June 2th. The yacht was handed over from the delivery crew to the cruising captain. Hew started to prepare the yacht with his fine crew for her first sailing trip, a cruise around Sicily and the Aeolian Islands.
