The inaugural SuperYacht iQ report published last year was very well received and we are pleased to present the industry with the all-new second edition. The SuperYacht iQ Market Report is not just a normal market report, with statistics and analyses about the state of the market; inside we also present insight and information on how we can, collectively, make the superyacht business better and more transparent.
As with everything we do at SuperYacht Company, we are continuously improving our work. Last year we introduced our new information architecture to track the superyacht business. As of this year, the report has three functions:
Guide: The report will serve as a guide to better understand the superyacht business
Reference Point: The statistics give a yearly overview of the performance of the superyacht business
Inspire Change: We care and are passionate about the superyacht business and we share our findings and ideas to create a better business
This year, the SuperYacht iQ Market Report also includes much more comprehensive details of the market for completed yachts. More new data in this year’s edition of the Report includes details regarding the ownership of the global fleet, also taking a closer look at the nationalities of the owners of both the fleet as well as yachts currently under construction.
Commenting on the new Report, Director Merijn de Waard says: “Following on from our inaugural Report published last year, I’m very proud to reveal the 2017 edition of the SuperYacht iQ Market Report. This year’s Report has an increased focus on why we should improve the industry and my observations on how we in the industry can do this together.”
Explaining the importance of industry improvements, Merijn continues: “Just as with our SuperYacht Gallery event hosted in London earlier this year, with the publishing of our latest Report we at SuperYacht Company are demonstrably taking the first steps in the right direction to create a more professional, more efficient and more transparent business for everyone and, perhaps most importantly, offering current owners and the next generation of clients the opportunity to enter a vibrant business where their expectations are not just met, but exceeded.”
Just some of the questions the Report answers in detail include:
- Where do superyacht owners come from?
- How have the first six months of 2017 fared? What is the outlook for the future?
- How many new-build superyachts were sold in 2016? How many were speculation builds?
- How many new shipyards have started building yachts in the last 25 years?
