Yacht Style Issue 61 Out Now: The Premieres Issue
Yacht Style’s Issue 61 features New Models and World Premieres 2021, Cannes and Monaco show specials, Camper & Nicholsons CEO Paolo Casani, VP Yachts founder Vivian Chan, Galeon and Tony Castro, PMG Shipyard in Thailand, ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove, Reviews of Ferretti Yachts, Sanlorenzo, Aquila and Bali boats, and Yacht Style Awards 2021.
Yacht Style Issue 61 is another 200-page plus edition
Yacht Style Issue 61 has been launched for Europe’s autumn boat show season and honours the most exciting yachts on display in our special feature on New Models 2021, many of them world premieres at the Cannes Yachting Festival and Monaco Yacht Show.
Issue 61 highlights builders’ full displays at the Cannes Yachting Festival
Both shows weren’t held last year, so their return marks a two-year wait to see rows of stunning new motor yachts at Vieux Port, sailing boats at Port Canto and megayachts at Port Hercule. Yacht Style is a proud Media Partner of both events, which are covered with full previews in this exciting issue.
Review: Ferretti Yachts 1000
One of the year’s most exciting newcomers is our cover star, the Ferretti Yachts 1000, the new flagship of one of the world’s leading motor yacht builders and among our major Reviews in this issue.
Review: Sanlorenzo 62Steel; Photo: Guillaume Plisson
Our first Review is the first Sanlorenzo 62Steel, which is marking its world premiere at Monaco and is the Italian builder’s second-largest yacht, with a stunning owner’s apartment with pool view.
Review: Aquila 54 Yacht
Like the Ferretti Yachts 1000, a new hull of the Aquila 54 Yacht is expected in Asia in early 2022. Among Reviews, this 54-footer is the smaller but even more popular sister of the Aquila 70 Luxury profiled in Issue 59 and reinforces the brand’s strong move into the larger powercat sector.
Review: Bali 4.2
We also profile the Bali 4.2, which is among the many world premieres at Cannes and fleshes out a fresh line of sailing catamarans from the French builder, with all but one model released within the last two years.
New Models 2021 includes the Azimut Grande Trideck
Other pioneering new models from leading brands include Azimut’s new flagship, the 38m Grande Trideck, which is scheduled to show at both Cannes and Monaco, as is Sunseeker’s new 90 Ocean, which ushers in a new class of design for the British builder. Beneteau has a new flagship in its Grand Trawler 62 and there’s so much more.
Leader: Paolo Casani, CEO, Camper & Nicholsons
The Monaco show is also an annual summit for the global brokerage houses, so we feature Paolo Casani, Camper & Nicholsons CEO, in our Leader interview.
Lind is Burgess’ latest landmark sale in Asia
We also profile the achievements of Burgess’ Asia team, which recently secured their 20th superyacht brokerage sale, a landmark in the region.
Design: Galeon & Tony Castro
Design digs into Galeon’s 20-year relationship with Tony Castro, who has worked with the shipyard to produce some of the most innovative production motor yachts of recent times, with more and more arriving in Asia.
Profile: Vivian Chan, VP Yachts
Profile focuses on VP Yachts, Sessa’s new dealer in Hong Kong headed by Vivian Chan, who has spent a decade in the gritty surrounds of her family’s Sun Hing Shipyard.
Owner: TC Wong, Leopard 50
TC Wong is another remarkable individual, profiled in Owner, who made headlines last year when the Singaporean was stranded on his Leopard 50 Ximula III in the South Pacific when Covid forced borders to close around him.
Shipyard: PMG Shipyard, Rayong, Thailand
Thailand-based Philippe Guenat also has plenty of stories to tell, having explored and developed solar technology for boats for over a decade. Today, Guenat’s PMG Shipyard in Rayong produces the Silent 60 – another world premiere at Cannes – as well as its own solar-assisted Heliotrope catamarans and other models.
Marinas: ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove, Singapore
Meanwhile, in Singapore, ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove is looking better than ever after a US$5 million upgrade that included doubling its superyacht capacity, increasing megayacht access, improving berths and boosting infrastructure, as it positions itself for when yachts can comfortably resume travels around the region.
Yacht Style Awards returns
Looking ahead, we’re also delighted to announce the Yacht Style Awards 2021, which will be unveiled online and honour all those who have been working hard to keep the industry buoyant during this trying period.
Hong Kong is the hub of Events
Meanwhile, it has been another tremendous summer of yachting in Hong Kong, which is the hub of our Events section. And while travel is still difficult, we’re happy to keep offering a window into what’s happening in yachting in Asia and around the world. We hope you enjoy the issue.
