The biggest privilege of this job is seeing, first hand, the lengths to which people go in order to make their yacht their own. From the vibrant style of 110 metre Jubilee, to the restrained chic of Wally sailing yacht Barong D, I have yet to see a yacht interior that is not a showcase in true craftsmanship and quality. And for many owners and their partners, the entire yacht’s design scheme starts off with something as small as a much-loved swatch of fabric, or a particular feature in a home’s cornicing. Fabric, in fact, maketh the yacht – and with the growth in new and exciting varieties of leathers, silks, outdoor fabrics and carpets on the market – not to mention the environmentally friendly ones – there is really no excuse for complacency. Whichever design you go for, whether for owning or when choosing a charter, we hope you find this month’s Design Report useful.
Put two superyacht owners in a room and within five minutes they’ll be complaining about crew. That’s the old joke, but I’ve witnessed it enough times to know there’s some truth to it. My favourite crew story was told to me by an owner a few years ago: he goes down to get a drink from the fridge in the middle of the night and finds his chef in there with a guest off another boat. Let’s just say he wasn’t giving her cooking tips. I’m sure there’s a million more like that – and far more scandalous. We’ve compiled a few for a special feature on crew recruitment, pay and fashion. There’s so much in this month’s issue that it’s hard to know where to go next, so I’ll turn to our cover star. Touring Jubilee, Holland’s biggest superyacht, was a reminder of the very special and unique access we’re given to the world’s most incredible superyachts. And the best part is we get to take you along for the ride.
