Piriou’s Yersin, a giant beast

Piriou’s Yersin, a two-hundred-fifty foot expedition yacht, earlier made its debut at the Monaco Yacht Show. Francois Fiat, the owner of the yacht, selected the yard as he wanted a vessel that would be as racy as the commercial boats Piriou has made in its history.
The yacht was named Alexandre Yersin by Francois Fiat. The Swiss born, French scientist, who is also an avid adventurer, has traveled the world to look for many diseases. Piriou and Fiat had three conditions that the world-class adventurer had to meet – the yacht had to be able to sail with an broadened rate in all waters—from polar regions to tropics. It also had to be eco-friendly, both in its onboard systems and propulsion. And, Yersin had to be highly versatile and comfortable, since the owner as well as his guests might be spending months onboard.
The 18-passenger yacht can easily accommodate twenty-four crew members along with two captains. This figure really shows that the yacht can successfully travel anywhere the world. It can voyage among ice floes up to fifteen inches thick. It can sail quite comfortably in temperatures from minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit to 122 degrees Fahrenheit.
