As a media brand at the front and centre of the superyacht industry, with so many friends, partners and peers whose livelihoods and passions rely on the ocean, we strive to keep conservation at the heart of much that we do – from the stories that we tell, to the people we celebrate, to our actions as a company. We hope that our annual Oceans Issue reflects our efforts.

Our Ocean Awards, which we launched with Blue Marine Foundation only three years ago, has grown from a small-scale smorgasbord of success stories to a global stamp of approval that nearly 100 nominees applied to win the right to use this year. The finalists and winners, all of whose achievements are phenomenal, are just a taste of the inspiring stories that the judges had the impossible task of singling out for merit.

If you or your nomination didn’t make the grade this year, please don’t let that discourage you in 2019 – the projects that get through are often decades in the making and it’s these continued efforts that tip the balance in the decision-making process.

You may also notice mention of a new event, Ocean Talks, that we’re proud to be launching next month in London. While parts of the yacht industry are making great strides in their efforts to help save the seas, others are still woefully behind, often due to a lack of resources and know-how rather than will. Our hope is that by connecting the superyachting world with those who have achieved real success in ocean conservation, we can offer a platform for change. From the maker of Blue Planet II to the people behind Project REV – the most extraordinary expedition yacht currently in build – we hope there’s something that might entice you to join us.

One shining example of conservation-led superyachting this month is the astonishing Black Pearl. We’re thrilled to bring you exclusive behind-the-scenes pictures and details of this very special yacht. She’s massive, yes, but it’s her owner’s demand that she set an example for green standards that really sets her apart.
