The start of the new decade also marks a milestone for SuperYacht Times: the 30th issue of The SuperYacht Times, our bi-monthly newspaper, is out now and available via subscription or by picking up your copy at this year’s edition of Boot Düsseldorf.Photo: SuperYacht TimesIn this issue, we talk to Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design’s founder, Sander Sinot, about his background, his vision and his work on some of the most impressive superyachts currently in build or recently joining the fleet (pp.6-7). We also sit down with Camper & Nicholsons' Asia chairman Lester Lam to talk about his plans for C&N in the Asian market (p.8), and interview Eric Lepeingle, Imperial’s Head of Sales & Charter, to see how Imperial intends to stay ahead of the game (p.12).Photo: SuperYacht Times
We also enjoyed a candid chat with the CEO and President of Ocean Alexander, Johnny Chueh, for our ‘Profile’ feature (pp.14-5) about how the Taiwanese company is planning to crack the European market with its latest Revolution series and the unexpected turn of events which resulted in Johnny becoming the man at the company’s helm in the first place.
As the designer of one of the most talked-about superyachts of this year’s busy show season, we were also delighted to have the opportunity to sit down with Jarkko Jämsén, the man responsible for penning the exterior lines of the 77.25-metre Feadship Syzygy 818 (now renamed Pi), and to discover his distinctive approach to superyacht design (pp.16-17).Photo: SuperYacht Times Other topics we cover in this issue include a look on board the 63.72-metre Hakvoort yacht Scout, an exclusive preview of Baglietto’s Project 10231, and an in-depth review of the 60-80-metre market, comparing 2019 to the previous year.Photo: SuperYacht Times
