we’re pretty unique in having so much to offer consumers – why sell a boat when you can sell a dream?

Having just returned from a successful IBEX show in Tampa, Florida, off the back of IBI visits to Cannes, Southampton, Monaco, and Genoa boat shows, it’s exciting (though exhausting), to witness the industry in such rude health across a broad spread of markets. In his annual State-of-the-Industry address at IBEX, NMMA president Thom Dammrich labelled the US industry the strongest it has been since the mid-1980s, in a current seven-year period of annual growth, capping 2017 with an all-time sales high of US$38.6bn.

sunseeker takes next step with icon

UK British luxury yacht maker Sunseeker has selected Icon Yachts of the Netherlands to build its next flagship – the Sunseeker 161 – in aluminium at its yard in the Dutch city of Harlingen. The plan is for Icon to build five Sunseeker 161s a year, starting next spring. The first is to be delivered in 2021. Also, all Dutch-built Sunseekers will have a Fast Displacement Hull Form, a patent of Van Oossanen Naval Architects of the Netherlands that generates significant fuel savings and onboard comfort. The Sunseeker-Icon collaboration was announced by the two companies at a joint press conference at the Monaco Yacht Show. It comes at a time of great uncertainty over the conditions of Britain’s exit from the European Union next March. Sunseeker sales director Sean Robertson said he expects Brexit…
