2015 review: 12 months of yachting news

1 of 12 1/12


Join us as we look back on the biggest yacht news of 2015, starting with January...

At the end of 2014 Bermuda was named as the host of the 35th Americas’s Cup, so in January we looked at the six reasons why it was chosen. America’s Cup hero Ben Ainslie was in the news after he had to be rescued by Richard Branson whilst on his honeymoon.

January was also a significant month for yacht news when we got the first pictures of recently delivered 51 metre Heesen MySky. The 101 metre  Kusch superyacht I Dynasty was also spotted on the move and Vitruvius yachts revealed the design for a new 50 metre.

January was also a month for news from under the sea. The catamaran motor yacht Thunderbird 2 was revealed to be capable of carrying a submarine, named Thunderbird 4 of course. Meanwhile Calypso, the research vessel of diver and marine conservationist Jacques Cousteau, was found in a state of disrepair amid a legal battle.

There were also some tragic stories of yacht fires. The classic Feadship Notorious was destroyed while undergoing major repairs, the 42.6 metre Lubenico caught fire at sea and a marina in Fort Lauderdale was forced to close after a fire destroyed two yachts.
