ON THE COVER Neil Rabinowitz

The 332-foot Attessa IV was built in Holland by Feadship and underwent a 100% redesign at Vancouver Shipyards with primary design work by Bellevue's Glade Johnson and styling contributions by Victoria's Greg Marshall Design. At sunrise near Butte Inlet the yacht's wading pool glows in the dawn light. The lower waters of Butte inlet are often flat calm but quickly moving, especially when the tide rips through Arran Rapids at 10+ knots, so large yachts have to pick their moments to linger. This shot was staged in darkness and taken as a time exposure while the sun rose.
