Yacht crew give back to communities


More yacht crews pitched in to help YachtAid Global move donated medical and school supplies to needy communities around the world.

The crew of the 193-foot M/Y Seawolf picked up aid in Panama City and dropped it off at the secluded Islas Secas 25nm away. Following in the steps of M/Y Lady Lola, which carried similar supplies in February, the Seawolf crew loaded supplies for the local communities that border Coiba National Park.

“Everyone at YachtAid Global extends a huge thank you to captain and crew of both yachts for making a stand, and acting as a catalyst to inspire others to do good things,” said Mark Drewelew, a former yacht captain and founder of the non-profit group. “These are the sorts of actions that are changing the public perception of the superyacht industry.”
