Yacht Docking in Saint Tropez is as Awesome as it is Stressful

When it comes to yacht life, lots of us imagine all good times and a stress-free experience. For those who are just hanging around, that might just be the case. They can cruise into the sunset without a care in the world as they count their money. However, for the crew on board, things aren’t always so easy sailing. Instead, there are countless nuances that need to be attended to. If everything isn’t operating as according to plan, the scene can move from smooth to catastrophic. It might seem pretty straightforward, but that isn’t always the case.

This time, we join in with the scene from Saint Tropez as a yacht docking is underway. Under normal circumstances, this would be a situation that could put anyone on edge. After all, any damage to a yacht like the one being piloted here would be incredibly expensive. In this one, though, a whole new layer of stress is added to the equation. Instead of a simple docking procedure, this one has to be done in between two other yachts! That’s triple the potential for something to go wrong. It’s also triple the expense if an accident unfolds in this sort of situation. Even for a well-versed captain, this one could end up being a little bit nerve-racking.

By following along in the video below, we check in with a situation that really shows some smooth maneuvering. Backing up a vessel like this isn’t exactly backing a car into a parking spot. Instead, we check out a feat of confidence as the massive yacht ends up smoothly sailing straight back into place. Even after doing something like this time after time, I’m not sure it would be easy to get used to. When all is said and done here, I think that it’s finally time to kick back and relax for a minute.
