Issue 215: The Superyacht Refit Report is now available online! The highly anticipated edition of The Superyacht Report is a slight break from convention, instead of exposing flaws in the system and looking at how we can improve, we decided to ask the market ‘What are we doing right, and how can we keep moving forward?’.
We want to focus on the industry's positive trends, without necessarily ‘championing’ or ‘promoting’ anyone in particular, and to highlight some of the impressive strides being made in one of the most vital sectors of the market. The overarching aim of this issue has been to uncover and broadcast technical insight from people who are at the coal face, i.e people who really know what they are talking about. We figured that there really is no point asking people who spend most of their time in air-conditioned offices pie-in-the-sky questions about future outcomes that probably won’t be implemented any time soon.
That is why this issue is absolutely choc-a-bloc full of the most fascinating refit case studies that have been completed in recent years. In last year's Refit Report, there was a lot of patter about the lifecycle concept, and the need to upgrade the existing fleet to match modern standards. It has been encouraging to see the work that has been done since then, and it is worthwhile noting that sometimes words are backed up by action. The efforts made by the shipyards mentioned in this report should be recognised not only for their economic and aesthetic values but also for their environmental and social impact.
For this report, our Editors visited Palma, Genoa, Auckland and Monaco in order to better understand the full scale and scope of the Refit sector. We also looked at the state of the industry in the US, where massive publicly traded corporations seem to have taken a liking to shipyards and marinas along the East coast.
We are fully committed to working towards a greener superyacht industry. And we, as a team, aim to do all we can to ensure that we are part of the solution.
