Running on Waves
Year of Construction: 2011
Maximum Capacity: 28
Launched in 2011, Running on Waves combines the look of a classic three-masted sailing vessel with contemporary design and state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. She is modern, high-speed, and environmentally friendly, with a High Ocean Class rating that allows her to sail anywhere around the globe. All thirteen sails are deployed hydraulically from the deck by a four-man crew in a ballet-like procedure. The vessel meets all current SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) requirements for navigational and safety equipment.
Amenities: Has stabilizers, a bow thruster, a hydraulic stern marina for easy access to the sea, and a sun deck with a Jacuzzi. Much of the deck area is shaded for protection from the sun. Meals are served buffet style in the dining room, which can accommodate all guests at one seating. In the spirit of private yachting, a full open bar is provided each day: spirits, wine, beer, soft drinks, bottled water, coffee, and tea are complimentary.
Accommodations: Each of the ship’s 18 cabins has efficient air-conditioning and heating along with private en suite facilities. Single, double, and triple accommodations are available. Teak, tile, light alloys, and artwork are featured in the decor, creating the ambience of a sumptuous private yacht. Cabin flooring is teakwood; a medieval-style mosaic greets guests at the entrance to the cabin. All lanterns and fixtures are done in nautical style.
Internet and satellite television are available onboard. TV Screens broadcast this additional information:
- Signals from two underwater cameras and from a camera mounted on one of the masts
- Data from navigation devices directly from the conning room – depth gauge, GPS, etc.
- Onboard events information, details and agendas for ports of call, etc.
All cabins onboard the ship have outside access; bathrooms are finished with marble and are equipped with modern lavatories and showers. Every cabin is fitted with telephone, multifunctional TV monitor, safe, refrigerator, an air conditioner and heater.
