Published today in The Financial Times is a Special Report entitled Yachts and Marinas.
As regular contributors to the newspaper we have written four features in the report. They are:
The Future of the Superyacht The headline reads: The heady, easy-money days of 2007 may never return. If proof is needed of the recovery, many of the more fantastic projects now under construction appear to provide it. We report on what is out there now.
Marinas and the Mediterranean In the European summer, the Mediterranean is the playground of choice for wealthy yacht-owners, with the Caribbean favoured in the winter. But where is the vessel to be based? Malta or Mallorca? France or Italy? We examine the options.
Yacht Shows Our guide to the multi-layered world of the yacht show, where Monaco, Cannes and others cater to the upper end of the market while the ordinary “boat shows” welcome would-be yacht and motorboat owners with more limited budgets. This report appears on FT.com and can be downloaded here.
Asia’s Rise We ask will Asia’s hitherto lukewarm endorsement of yachts and superyachts finally begin to match the region’s proven economic might? This report appears on FT.com and can be downloaded here.

Other features in the Special Report tackle subjects that include:

- Marinas Around the World
- New Buyers who are they?
- Racing and Regattas
Special Reports are written by FT staff journalists and a small number of selected freelance writers. They like us will be specialists in the field and already have regular contacts to update them. It is therefore difficult for an unsolicited submission to be so compelling that it forces its way on to a writer’s agenda. However, it does happen occasionally.
