Altena 53 yacht tour: This pocket explorer yacht can handle pretty much anything

If you want to go to sea almost regardless of the weather conditions, then this Altena 53 is the kind of boat you want, as Nick explains...

Built in the Netherlands in 1998 as an extended version of the 47ft Altena Blue Water Trawler, Canicher is made of seriously tough stuff.

Take the 6mm thick steel hull for instance, which includes fin stabilisers and a fully protected main propeller.

This little ship feeling continues inside through the storm-proof doors, with traditional fiddled woodwork throughout and even a navigation station – the kind of feature you rarely see outside of large bluewater sailing yachts.

VIDEO: 24 hours with the Hardy 65

A boat like the Hardy 65 deserves a proper test, so with snow on the decks, we round the Isle


Accommodation is for up to six people, split between two bunk cabins in the bow and a massive owner’s suite back aft.

But the heart of the Altena 53 is its super-heavy duty engine, a Caterpillar 3306 commercial diesel engine that is designed to run at maximum capacity 100% of the time.

And if that should ever fail, there’s a 56hp Vetus wing engine too, so you’ve got an emergency option to get you home.

Enjoy the tour…

Toy of the Month: This personal submarine can dive almost 2 miles deep

If you want to explore the deep, there can be few finer ways of doing it than on the €4.4m U-Boat Worx C-Researcher personal submarine.

The C-Researcher range from U-Boat Worx is one of the deepest diving personal submarines on the market.

Depending on which specific model you opt for, it can take three occupants up to 3,000 metres (almost 2 miles!) beneath the surface at speeds of up to 3 knots.

To achieve this, it uses a pressure-tolerant Lithium-ion battery system. This new battery technology offers up to 100% more capacity than your average personal submarine.

A total capacity of 62kWh allows up to 18 hours of endurance. And to ensure a view worthy of the depth, a clear acrylic pressure canopy provides an unobstructed view in every direction.

A single lifting point allows for safe, quick launching – assuming you have a vessel large enough to handle its 10-tonne weight.

Prices start from €4,400,000, but if you’ve already got a big enough superyacht to launch a personal submarine from, then that price probably doesn’t seem prohibitive.
