Crew Life

Crew Eye from the crew of Motoryacht Albula


The crew of M/Y Albula, a 210-foot (64m) Royal Denship formerly named Turmoil, know that holiday season on a yacht doesn’t mean time off from duties. Chef Rory Clark knocks up some lunch for the crew with help from stews Natalie Henderson and Tasha Knight, while 2nd Engr. Aaron Quadrio works on the lathe. After lunch, the crew gather for some table-top drills where they talk over some of the finer points, such as testing gear. They’ll save hands-on drills for when vacationing crewmates return to the yacht, which is currently docked at Rybovich Marina & Shipyard in West Palm Beach, Florida.
