The seventh issue of our bi-monthly edition of the SuperYacht Times newspaper published earlier this month explores some of the most important companies, people and topics in the superyacht industry today.
We kick off this issue with the announcement of one of our most challenging projects to date. Company Director Merijn de Waard offers a compelling insight regarding the complexity and inaccuracy of data compilation in the industry, and how we at SuperYacht Company aim to transform this for the better with the imminent publication of the SuperYacht iQ Report 2016.
From the Netherlands to the States, this issue also offers an inside look at the growth of the American superyacht industry with an interview with CEO of Hargrave Custom Yachts, Mike Joyce, as well as an overview of the forward thinking business practices of AJ Anderson and Wright Maritime Group.
We talk to two very different superyacht owners in this issue: Mark and Mary Shores who own the popular charter sailing yacht, Marae, as well as U.S. entrepreneur John Rosatti, who recently sold the 49 metre Remember When, quickly replacing her with the 65 metre Double Down.
Our editors have taken a look into several compelling topics, including questioning the loose definition of what exactly an explorer yacht is, as well as the ‘hype’ of yacht wraps. Our in-house yacht historian Malcolm Wood takes an unprecedented look at the industry of the 1950s, complemented by a unique and unparalleled selection of his own personal photographs.
