Scrolling for something to watch while self-isolating at home? In response to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, BOAT International has launched a new video series 'At Home With BOAT', featuring interviews with superyacht owners and yachting industry leaders
The new series kicked off with an interview with Burgess CEO Jonathan Beckett. Episodes 2 and 3 feature interviews with the owner of 44m Latitude Anil Thadani and Eddie Jordan, owner of the 45m Perini Blush.
In the first interview, Beckett looks at the challenges facing the broker and charter markets, while Thadani talks about some of his inspiring adventures on board Latitude in places like Svalbard and Raja Ampat.
Future videos in the series will feature interviews with Bruce Grossman, owner of 54m Forever One, Raphael Sauleau, CEO of Fraser, Mike Fisher, owner of 36m Brigadoon and creative director and founder of Studio Indigo, and Richard Hadida, owner of Oyster Yachts and owner of 27m Lush.
Stewart Campbell, editor of BOAT International, said: “With everyone working from home, it felt like a great opportunity to engage some of the really interesting characters in our industry and have a conversation.
“Topics range from the current situation facing key businesses in the superyacht industry, to owners discussing crew quarantine and how they started out in yacht ownership. I recommend everyone makes a cup of tea and takes a look.”
Videos will be regularly uploaded to BOAT International’s YouTube channel, and featured on the new Virtual Boat Show hub. Check back regularly for updates.
