VisitGuernsey has announced that The World, the largest privately owned residential yacht on earth (aboardtheworld.com), is returning to St Peter Port and will be anchored in local waters until 2300 hrs on Wednesday evening. The Ship last visited Guernsey in July 2010, and this summer marks The World’s fourth call to the island.
While in Guernsey, The World’s Residents will have the opportunity to partake in one-of-a- kind experiences, including an evening reception at Castle Cornet, an exclusive private showing of Victor Hugo’s Drawings: Visions of Exile, an intimate evening with the Seigneur of Sausmarez Manor, as well as cycling across the island and hiking in and around St Peter Port.
From Guernsey, The World will sail to the Netherlands before embarking on its 11-day Svalbard Archipelago expedition at the beginning of August from Tromso, Norway. In early autumn, The World sails back to the British Isles to experience the more remote regions –such as the isolated archipelago of St. Kilda and on to additional islands throughout the Hebrides such as the Glannan Isles, Shetland Islands and Orkney Islands.
Launched in 2002, The World is the largest privately owned, residential yacht on earth with 165 luxury Residences. A diverse group of Residents from 19 countries own the homes onboard and share interests in world cultures, history and adventure, and exploring fascinating destinations. They circumnavigate the globe every two to three years following an extraordinary itinerary that they select. In-depth expeditions and one-of-a-kind experiences are complemented by world-class amenities and impeccable service.
