The crown of evolution


The 54.86-metre megayacht Gene Machine, built by Amels shipyard in 2013, is en route from Rotterdam to Amsterdam. In December 2016, the crew of Gene Machine rescued the crew of the 13.4m sailing yacht Bavaria Minerva in distress while participating in the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) regatta. The yacht was completing a transatlantic crossing in conjunction with a charity event which raised money for the Heart Research Institute and the Ducks & Drakes Cancer Trust. During this voyage, Gene Machine's 12 crew members took turns pedaling the exercise bike placed on the yacht's upper deck.
