As all superyacht owners know, there is an art to travelling in style which requires a lot of hard work and planning – no matter how effortless it may look. The same goes for flying: when pondering whether to buy a private plane or to charter, there are many questions to ask and decisions to be made. In our Aviation guide John Arlidge tussles with the business of flying and Tory Kingdon looks at the innovative new materials designers are utilising in plane interiors. We continue the jet-set theme with our fashion shoot, which showcases the key new pieces to keep the busiest globetrotters looking suitably suave. And as it’s holiday season, many of you will be entertaining on board, so we asked Debra Reuben, boat owner and hostess of impeccable taste and style, to give your superyacht guests a helping hand. Her definitive guide to how to behave on board will ensure your friends are, for the most, properly trained… so all that’s left is to kick back and enjoy their company.

”Build me a beast!” Those words have almost become legend in the superyachting industry.

A beast is what the owner wanted, and that is exactly what he got. Albeit a very beautiful one. Marilyn Mower writes in her world exclusive feature that there were gasps when the model for Ngoni was unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2014. It’s true – I was there. The model was also displayed at the World Superyacht Awards in Amsterdam in 2015, where it had a constant gaggle of admirers (and a very proud Ed Dubois standing nearby). The designer’s last boat is a stunner, to be sure, and a fitting legacy for such a remarkable career. A little bit before Ngoni you’ll find the Top 101. In 2016, there were four new entries into the list of the world’s biggest boats. In 2017, there were 10. I’m not saying it’s time to pop the champagne, but things are looking pretty healthy right now. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the Global Order Book – your definitive guide to the state of superyachting.
