BOATLIFE ⛵⚓ Anchored next to MEGA YACHT Venus at Stromboli in the Aeolian Islands - Sailing SV CUBA

his week our boatlife brings us to Stromboli in the Aeolian Islands, where we are anchored right next to Megayacht Feadship – formerly known as Steve Jobs’ Yacht ‘Venus’.
We realized that Italy is not just a sailing destination for charter boats and cruisers but also a stopover for many superyacht owners, who want to get a glimpse of the volcanoes and beautiful coastline of Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Stromboli, Filicudi, Alicudi and Panarea.
I guess in the sailing lifestyle you always get surprised: One day you see Stromboli erupting right from the deck of your sailboat and the next day you wake up to have Steve Jobs’ luxury yacht anchored next to you.
But 99% of the time it is doing jobs in exotic places, covered in oil, salt and fiberglass.
