4 top brokers react to the US presidential election

1 of 4 1/4

Edmiston & Company

In the wake of Donald Trump's shock victory in the 2016 US presidential election, Boat International spoke to some of the biggest names in the yachting industry to get their reaction.

Jamie Edmiston, chief executive of Edmiston & Company, said: “Politics is a funny thing; and as we have seen in the last few months both in the UK and the USA, nothing is ever certain. Following Donald Trump’s election victory I am not sure I can add a great deal to the already expansive commentary that has come from analysts and academics alike; other than to say that I hope that as a former yacht owner, Mr Trump considers ordering a brand new Presidential yacht; built in the United States of course. The last Presidential yacht was the USS Sequoia, decommissioned in 1977, but at 32 metres she was somewhat smaller than Mr Trump’s former 82 metre Trump Princess (now Kingdom 5KR — pictured above).”
