Dear Homo Sapiens, There is no need to continue reading this page. What follows is intended for search engine robots and spiders and not necessarily for human beings. Further information concerning yachts cruising the eastern and western Mediterranean may be obtained by clicking on the maroon links immediately above. Thank You. You may be searching for an eye prescription, something to clear the webs blurring your morning vision. Or you may be searching for a contact lens cleaner. Or you may even be searching for eyeglasses. Sorry. How was Google to know! Alternatively you may be searching for a Mediterranean cruise. Especially a luxury cruise, but not aboard the Costa Concordia. Whatever your search, you have found a new super-yacht cruising both the eastern Cruising Western Mediterraneanand western Mediterranean from her home in Bodrum, Turkey. Take a look. Maybe the shoe fits. If not this year then another year. Clear Eyes not only cruises the Turkish, Croatian, Italian, and French rivieras but cruises as well the crossroads of history from ancient Rome to the Renaissance and later, including the crossroads between Sicily and Tunisia which during the Sixteenth Century divided east and west, the Ottoman Empire of Suleiman and the Holy Roman Empire of Charles V. You may have read something about cruising in this part of the world. About cruising Malta, for example, almost equidistant between Siciliy and Tunis. Or among Italy's Aeolian Islands, for another example, picturesque islands north of Sicily such as Lipari and volcanic Stromboli, the latter visible at a much greater distance during the hours of darkness. Or you may have read of Ponza in the Pontine Islands, a holiday destination twenty miles south of Homer's Cape Circe, or you may have seen on television the Costa Concordia on the rocks off the Tuscan island of Giglio not far from Bonaparte's Elba. And you are certainly familiar with or wish you were familiar with the isle of Capri, setting for Somerset Maugham's thought-provoking The Lotus Eater (free on-line) concerning an Englishman so enamored with the island he gives up bank management and spends the rest of his life in idle pursuit of nothing at all. In reading your Homer you may have also Cruising Western Mediterraneancome across the Tunisian island of Djerba where lotus eaters abound. And where corsairs such as the Barbarossa brothers once abounded. Or your thoughts might simply be of lazing under a gentle sun and dining well in the evening. Or of dining well around the clock. In all of these events you have found an appropriate web page. You have found a web page dealing with a most handsome super-yacht. And you have found an hospitable crew familiar with all of the places we've mentioned, with no intent to omit mention of other notable Mediterranean destinations. You have found an hospitable crew producing haute cuisine. You have found an accommodating crew able to relate Mediterranean history. And not just history of the Roman Empire and Italian Renaissance but as well of Homer's Odysseus and more. And able, too, to discuss the siren Circe Odysseus found north of the Pontines. You have found a crew knowledgeable of the sea and of seamen. One such seaman to sail this crossroads was Andrea Doria (1466-1560), Lord of Genoa, Duke of Melfi, Grand Admiral of the Holy Roman Empire, and a giant of history. He was, however, only one of a long line of Dorias who took to the sea, including cousin Antonio (1495-1577), nephew Gian Andrea (1539-1606), adopted son and cousin Giannettino (1510-1547), nephew Filippino (1475-1528), and still others, all of whom served the Holy Roman Empire at sea. Andrea Doria began his professional life at the age of 18 not at sea bur rather as a condottiere or hired mercenary serving under cousin Niccolo Doria in the Papal Guard of Pope Innocent VIII. Following later service under the Duke of Urbino and the King of Naples, he in 1495 made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem and was received at Rhodes by the Hospitaller Knights of St. John of Jerusalem. This was his first experience at sea, an experience leading in 1508 and 1509 to oared-galley service in the pay of the Serene Republic of Venice then ruling much of the Aegean. For the next half century he was to remain at sea, principally establishing his credentials at the 1526 Battle of Piombino when commanding a Papal flotilla of 14 galleys he found the corsair admiral Kheir-ed-Din Barbarossa with sixteen galliots lurking in the Cruising Western Mediterraneancoves of eastern Elba, destroying or capturing 15 of them, Barbarossa himself escaping under cover of darkness. This was the same year Sebastiano del Piombino painted the oil on panel depicted above; the rather severe demeanor and black apparel perhaps intended to reflect service that year to the Vatican. Andrea Doria's most notable encounter with Barbarossa took place in July 1535 when with a fleet of 102 galleys, galliots, and brigantines, one of which transported Emperor Charles V, and some 300 other vessels he assaulted Barbarossa's haven at Tunis as depicted at left. Barbarossa and his lieutenants Aydin and Sinan were put to flight on foot, while the spoils included 82 galleys, galliots, and brigantines as well as 27 other vessels. Seven thousand Christian slaves imprisoned in Tunis bagnos gained their freedom. Like a chameleon, however, The Sultan's Admiral was to gain a modicum of revenge three years later with a strategic victory at Preveza, ancient Actium, catching Doria's superior fleet of galleys and laggard sailing vessels strung out along a windless west coast of the island of Santa Maura (Levkas). Doria was to lose 3 galleys and 5 sailing vessels before taking advantage of a night wind to regroup at Corfu. That year the pendulum of war in the Mediterranean swung in favor of the Ottomans where it remained until 1571's Battle of Lepanto, an overwhelming Holy League victory in which the Christian right wing was commanded by Gian Andrea Doria.
