They share their experiences and “gold nuggets of information”, focussing mainly on motor yachts of over 50 metres, describing how the industry works, from yacht design to yacht building, to yacht sales and operations.

The Superyacht Industry book is designed to be an asset and a reference for yacht owners and people employed in the yachting industry.
