Debuts New Design

1392824816, the specialist website devoted to American luxury-yacht owners and buyers, has updated its output with a new look, and added features.

From its debut in 2007 to today, has excelled in capitalising on the growing use of internet-based news and story exchange.

Re-launched to reflect the Web’s increasing emphasis on imagery, the new features eye-catching components.

The homepage overall is simplified, containing at-a-glance boxes of the most popular articles and most recent comments. Furthermore, readers can now directly sign up for the monthly subscriber-only newsletter and download the Megayacht News App.

There is an entirely new section, called Photo Galleries. More than mere photo albums, the galleries are showcases of some of the world’s most beautiful superyachts. Each gallery is designed like a mosaic, with website users able to click any of the individual images to launch a pop-out, big-screen slideshow.

To better cover charter and cruising, two activities where readers have been increasingly requesting more content, the Web site has dedicated an entire category on the navigation bar called Charter & Cruising.

The category contains four sub-categories: Charter & Cruising News, Destination Guides, Marina News, and the Charter Yacht Brokers Directory. Previously, each of these was under different categories, such as Yachts.

Finally, also in response to reader requests, the popular Leadership Series feature is being increased to a twice-monthly rotation, from its previous once-per-month update.

The Leadership Series is a Q&A format with the top builders and designers, owners, and other influential figures in the megayacht sector, sharing their insight into current trends and the business of collaborating with other creative minds.
