A sobering reality

For many guests and owners, there is a synonymity with champagne and the aft deck of a superyacht – the affirming sound of flutes clinking together whilst watching a Cote d’Azur sunset is what it is all about. But, for whatever reason, this has seemingly seeped into the fabric of the working culture on board in a damaging manner. Images of drunken sailors on board yachts, living a nautical drug, sex and rock and roll lifestyle have been perpetuated to the world via social media and Below Deck.
