Written by Gemma Fottles

Since our launch over a decade ago, the SuperYacht Times media team has been on the forefront of delivering breaking industry news and completely dedicated to developing the most exciting superyacht stories from all over the world. Travelling to shows and events is a large part of this process, as is chasing the stories wherever they may be. So, here is our February edition of the monthly SuperYacht Times’ recaps, to share with you, our readers, a behind-the-scenes look at our team here in Amsterdam.
