Jul 2, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  2 Comments

As someone who spent much of her childhood on a sailboat, I can tell you firsthand that there's nothing quite like a well-made sailboat to take you through the sea. Whether crafted for racing or relaxation, sailboats have an elegance about them that hearken to the past. Yacht brands try their hardest to be the best and while I'm certainly not claiming Royal Huisman is the best, their 123-foot-long Pumula yacht is pretty impressive all the same.... Read More

Apr 26, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  1 Comment
