With its strikingly elegant profile and sophisticated, minimalist interior, the 49.9m M/Y Endeavour 2 is an explorer worthy of Italy's stylish Aeolian Islands.
Launched by world-class Italian shipyard Rossinavi in 2017, Endeavour 2 is a beautifully balanced superyacht. Designed by Enrico Gobbi and Team For Design for reliability and long range cruising, her chic interior by Achille Salvagni is an ode to the ocean; contemporary and restrained, like an urban loft. Accommodation for 10 guests is spread across five staterooms including a stunning full-beam owner’s cabin and a convertible VIP suite. Spaces are bright and and airy, bathed in sunlight streaming through the yacht’s oversized windows.
It is rather fitting that this Italian beauty is typically found cruising the Italian coastline, tracing Scilly’s curves and weaving around the Aeolian Islands. Scattered across the Tyrrhenian Sea, these seven volcanic islands and several uninhabited islets north of Sicily are a UNESCO world heritage site and offer visitors a feast for the senses. Seas of the bluest blue, sandy inlets, fragrant lemon groves, exquisite cuisine and tiny white-washed towns combine with a quintessentially Italian languor in one of the Western Med’s most captivating yachting destinations.
Named after Aeolus, the ancient demigod of the winds, the Aeolian Islands are cinematically pretty. There is Lipari, the largest island, where you can tuck into Pumice Stone Bay for a day of snorkelling and watersports. The pocket-sized paradise of Panarea is a haven for the fashionable, its elegant towns embodying la dolce vita. Nature lovers will fall for charismatic Stromboli, the Aeolian’s most active volcano, which still broods and splutters menacingly. For a lush, blooming landscape at odds with the volcanic terrain of her sister islands, visit Salina.
A charter here would feel incomplete without a visit to Capri and Amalfi. As beautiful as they are glamorous, they have been attracting artists and stars for centuries. Amalfi’s landscape rolls with citrus gardens making the local limoncello a must-try. Venture off the beaten track on Capri, and visit tiny Anacapri for the views or take the chair lift to Mount Solaro, the highest point on the island.
Anyone who has spent time hidden among the bays and beaches of this volcanic coastline will know that scent of lemons and romance of the white washed towns will stay with you long after you disembark.
