Adèle is one of the world’s most famous super-yachts, a magnificent beauty that plies the oceans with the grace of a thorough-bred. The author and photographer Jan-Eric Österlund has sailed this extraordinary yacht from the pack ice in the Arctic Ocean in the north, to Antarctica in the south and from the Mediterranean in the East, to New Zealand in the west. Together with photographer Rick Tomlinson, he tells the tale of this wonderful journey, which is illustrated with some 400 pictures. They visit legendary places – including Spitsbergen, the Galapagos Islands, the Marquesas, Fiji and Antarctica – they meet people from many different cultures and they encounter polar bears, albatrosses, penguins and whales; in short, some of the most beautiful and exciting places and creatures on the planet.
Selection of Articles about Adèle
The launch of Adèle in 2005 was a big event not only in our life but also in the yachting world and most yachting magazines had an article about her. Her subsequent voyages to faraway places further strengthened the interest in her. She also won several awards as the best designed sailing superyacht. I have selected a few of the many articles published about her and her voyages.
