Cooler climes have arrived and winter is nearly here (in two days, to be precise). There’s nothing else for it. It’s time to jump aboard a yacht of your dreams and dive head first into life-affirming adventure. The 2018/19 issue of FRASER gives you a little taste of what to expect when you arrive…
Monaco Yacht Show 2018, what a whirlwind experience that was. From award-winning design to innovative propulsion, the myriad of advances within the yachting industry was proudly on display.
Being in the thick of it as a freelance writer and editor is a privileged place to be. Taking it all in from my unbiased perspective enables me to see the multi-faceted dimensions of the yachting industry as a whole, not to mention stepping aboard all manner of vessels represented by a global community of shipyards, brokerage houses, designers and suppliers.
This was my eighth Monaco Yacht Show – it never fails to impress. Taking a tender to work will always be my favourite mode of public transport too. And the added bonus of a Red Arrows fly by this year was the cherry on the cake for me.
It’s been a bountiful few weeks when it comes to my charter reporting for Robb Report.
From the latest and greatest served up by the world’s biggest brokerage houses to new start-up Ahoy Cub – a digital platform that makes chartering yachts more accessible. From old school to new age, there’s something for everyone, all neatly presented online.
The new Fairline Yachts website, which showcases the Targa range, Squadron range and much anticipated F-Line, has gone live and looks stunning. Designed by digital agency Shotgun Front, and copy written by myself, the fluid, user-friendly website lets the yachts speak for themselves. It’s been a pleasure to be involved in this project.
FRASER issue 13. It’s coming…
A doe-eyed polar bear, festive winter snow, and the coolest articles out there – what more could you want from the latest issue of FRASER magazine? Hot from its launch at the Monaco Yacht Show, you can ‘read all about it’ in this jam-packed issue.
I am delighted to announce that I have been appointed as Editor on an exciting new book project working with the incredibly talented and exuberant superyacht designer, Ed Dubois of Dubois Naval Architects.
Taking inspiration from the classically beautiful sailing yachts that Ed has made his name designing over the past 40 years, the book is set to be a hugely exciting and adventurous project to work on, and I feel greatly privileged to be invited on board.
For the meantime, however, it’s yet another case of ‘watch this space’!
What a fantastic issue of Dubois Yachts’ beautiful annual publication, Inspired. Launched at last month’s Monaco Yacht Show it carries artfully designed articles on sailing yachts, life on the sea and the latest in naval architecture, not to mention two features I wrote on the Superyachthouse project and Christophe Harbour in St Kitts.
So for those of you who didn’t view it in the flesh at the Monaco Yacht Show last week, the latest issue of Fraser – the beautiful luxury publication for superyacht brokerage house Fraser Yachts – has finally landed.
It was a fantastic magazine to work on as commissioning editor, and we’re already putting our heads together for content ideas on the next issue.
Here’s to keeping it fresh and glamorous in the world of yachting.
I am truly delighted to announce that I have been appointed as commissioning editor on the beautiful, luxury magazine for Fraser Yachts – Fraser magazine. Having worked with this prestigious superyacht brokerage firm for a number of years now, I am very happy to be joining a new and exciting team putting the 2015 edition together. Packed full of insightful and intelligent editorial, not to mention the latest in Fraser Yachts sales and charter, this year’s issue looks set to be one of the best yet.
