Crystal Esprit got the trip of a lifetime last week as the yacht was called upon to rescue 12 French nationals who had abandoned their catamaran due to “fatal damage."

In “extremely inclement weather,” Esprit responded to a distress call in the Seychelles Islands, where three children and nine adults were floundering. Operating in darkness, heavy rain and high swells, the crew, along with the Seychelles Coast Guard, safely transferred the group onto a zodiac and then lifted them aboard the yacht.
