It’s official…

I’m super happy that the ‘Rebels Issue’ of Official Bespoke carries two of my latest features – the first pictured above profiling Damen’s unique yacht support vessel Power Play, and the second interviewing the wonderfully enigmatic Emily Penn of eXXpedition.

If you have a rare five mins to indulge in a little light reading, I highly recommend this awesome publication. It prides itself on saying it how it is, good and bad, and leaving all superfluous gloss to the laminate on the front cover.

Going Dutch!

The second press release written for Dutch innovator VRIPACK marks the beginning of a wonderfully collaborative and enjoyable working relationship. And what better way to kickstart the proceedings than with an SUV of the seas – M/Y ROCK is the yachting industry’s first ever pocket rocket! Read the full story here.

Going out with a bang!

The end of 2018 is just days away, and what better way to celebrate what has been a fantastically productive year than with the launch of the December issue of Simply Abu Dhabi which carries a mega 11 features written by myself. It also marks the first issue with my new dedicated yachting section. May 2019 be equally as fun and fruitful with myriad new discoveries and achievements. Happy Christmas to you all, and to all a good night!

Winter is coming!

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…

Planes, yachts and tenders…

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.

NEW! Editor and PM on Dubois Yachts book project

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’!
