We've recruited the best writers in the business to help bring you all these new features, including Hugo Rifkind, Rachel Johnson, Simon de Burton and Dylan Jones.
We also have some of the biggest names in boating and adventuring, from Eddie Jordan, who starts a new monthly column, to Sir Ben Ainslie on his challenge for the America's Cup, and Bear Grylls, who trials a water jet pack.
Our cover star is superyacht Kibo, the 81.8 metre Terence Disdale design launched earlier this year by Abeking & Rasmussen. See inside the yacht exclusively in this issue of Boat International.
