Under its previous name, Antiope, it was commanded a number of times by Sir Robin Knox-Johnson, the founder of Clipper Adventures and the first man to singlehandedly sail around the world non-stop. Originally built for fifteen crewmembers, she has been thoughtfully outfitted for sailing excursions that comfortably accommodate eight guests and two crew members (ten single berths) with spacious communal areas and a galley. The boat offers central heating, hot and cold water, two heads (toilets), one shower, and 220V electricity capable of charging batteries and other electronic devices.
