Meet the Athlete and Aesthete Imagine Sailing
Imagine Sailing is a sailboat with a double soul: the spirit of an athlete, the style of an aesthete. Born in 1993 from the mind of Ed Dubois, Imagine sleeps seven with a crew of five, and will count Belize, Panama’s San Blas Islands, the Galapagos, Easter Island and French Polynesia among its port of call in 2020.
In each place his owner Aldo Melpignano and his team have crafted “Nowhere Else” experiences, ranging from private excursions discovering unspoiled places to remote beach barbecues, from off-the-beaten-path cultural excursions to mouth-watering food experiences with local people.
Each route is unique and different in terms of adventure, culture, fun and exploration in order to satisfy the tastes of every type of traveller.

Her long journeys to the end of the world are a rich source of memories for many people from different cultures who have been guests on board, and have contributed in making Imagine a true travel boat with a great history.
