Ten Golden Rules for Successful Yacht Build Projects Second Edition

The new and expanded second edition of the book Ten Golden Rules for Successful Yacht Build Projects is scheduled to be released November 1, 2017.

With more than 30 years experience in yacht project development, management, and direct supervision, new-build and refit consultant, educator, marine journalist and former CEO of Palmer Johnson Yachts, Phil Friedman, wrote the first edition to much acclaim in 2012 and now he has added value to the next volume.

With more than 5,000 copies of the 1st edition distributed to date the new book adds sections on building in Asia, anticipating and preparing to handle post-delivery issues, and the pros and cons of conversions and major refits.

Phil has worn numerous hats over the years. Working as a yacht designer, boat builder, marine operations and business manager, marine industry consultant, marine marketing and communications specialist, yachting magazine writer and editor, yacht surveyor, he is now a marine industry educator.

He is also trained and experienced in interest-based negotiation and mediation.

In a previous life, Phil taught logic and philosophy at university.
