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!
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.
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.
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.
