Images from a drone show the yacht navigating the narrow isthmus and feat of modern engineering.

Crossing the Corinth Canal is the most efficient way to get from the Aegean Sea to the Ionian Sea, and whilst on charter there this summer a guest on board the 60-metre Benetti St David decided to film the event with their drone.

The perspective the video gives allows an appreciation for the skill and concentration required of large yacht captains to navigate the historic man-made isthmus.

The 60-metre Benetti was designed both inside and out by Winch Design, and launched in 2008. She is on charter with and for sale through West Nautical, with an asking price of €27,250,000.
