[Tuesday, live from the yard]


Today it’s this RM1180 #12, and her ladybug-style covering made by Brieuc Airault (Adhé Solutions Yachting), who is about to leave toward Morbihan at Chantier Naval du Redo !

Her owner reveals the story behind her name:

« A Zaroug is a kind of dhow, actually one of the fastest in this boat category. They usually can be seen in the Red Sea, near Yemen, Djibouti, Ethiopia…

I’m myself a great fan of Henry de Monfreid, the famous writer, sailor and explorer, who spent a large part of his life in this area of Africa. He sailed on these dhows during his more-or-less legal adventures.

My roots – I was born in Northern Africa, in Morocco, where I then spent 13 years of my youth – naturally oriented me toward a faraway kind-of-boat name. Just like a call from the seas I’m about to sail on, and write my own adventures”.

Let us know about the name of your own boat and the story behind!
