On sailing yachts

Georges Bourgoignie, broker at Fraser

The 2018 Global Order Book is now available as a Boat Pro exclusive. Armed with the top trends, Kate Lardy speaks to five key industry leaders to get their expert perspective...

“The sailing side of yachting is anaemic and seems to be diminishing annually," says Georges Bourgoignie, broker at Fraser. "There are fewer viable quality sailing yacht shipyards worldwide – probably a result of the lack of orders but this further adds to the problem. Two bright spots are Baltic and Nautor’s Swan. Both are composite construction specialised yards; perhaps this says that clients are seeking lighter performance-based yachts over the high volume metal yachts that previously have been at the heart of the sailing industry.”
