boat international magazine october 2014 issue superyacht luxury yacht megayachtWhen I visited The Italian Sea Group in Pisa this summer, one of my first events as editorial director, I was unsure of what to expect; in my previous job, cruise meant a fashion season, “supers” referred to models, and nautical was a trend that is yet to leave London’s Fulham Road. But quality transcends borders, and Pisa proved that the values underpinning the worlds of fashion and superyachts are identical: exceptional craftsmanship, extraordinary feats of perfection, unparalleled engineering and hospitality at its very best. It is this focus on excellence in all spheres of life that has guided the new look and feel of Boat International; we do hope you enjoy it. Personally, I’m now hooked on my new environment, although I draw the line at the engine room – what would I do with my heels?

Sacha Bonsor,
Editorial Director

It’s been an eye opener for me, helping adapt the magazine to bring in fresh lifestyle content. Coming from a purely boat background, it’s all very new, but I got a first-hand taste of all this fluffy high living on a recent trip to Monaco for the opening of the Brooks Brothers store. Endless Champagne, an amazing superyacht-lit dinner on the terrace of the new yacht club and even an appearance by a supermodel – it was Monaco at its rarefied best. I got a bit of a taste for it, to tell you the truth. You’ll see me in the front row of a catwalk show next, air kissing everyone and wearing something Italian. On second thoughts, maybe I’ll stick to boats. The clothes are cheaper.
