editors’ letters

It’s that time of year again. As the Med season kicks into action, a summer of partying beckons. Whether it’s small intimate affairs or “big numbers” with no expense spared, most likely you will be looking forward to a mixture of both. But what makes a yacht party so special? Certainly its potential for lavishness. Look no further than Jordana Reuben Yechiel’s recollection of 3,000 fake cherry blossoms hand stitched to trees lining a yacht’s helipad for that (page 132). For me, the ability to host your friends in some of the most beautiful places in the world would be the main attraction. For the less social, however, it is perhaps the chance of escape that appeals. I will never forget docking next to Giorgio Armani’s yacht in the Ionian…

keep on rolling

The new Aeroboat S6 concept from design studio Claydon Reeves strengthens Rolls-Royce’s marine ties. The British carmaker will be the primary supplier for every system on board this 19.8m cruiser, which is an evolution of the SV12, the studio’s 2013 tie-up with Rolls. Twin MTU V10 2000 M96 engines and a waterjet propulsion system ensure sporty performance, while the flexible Aerostairs boarding system adds further intrigue to this already appealing package. An exclusive appointment-only Aeroboat boutique is open now in Kensington, London, allowing clients to experience the full Aeroboat range, which extends from 16.8m to more than 30m. claydonreeves.com; aeroboat.co.uk This month: Sir Ben Ainslie on the next America’s Cup, Eddie Jordan’s dip at the Monaco Grand Prix, plus six of the best clubs to moor at…

lippy from the liffey

Eddie Jordan certainly knows how to have a good time I went to a party as Fred Flintstone recently. I could pull up my outfit to reveal my tiger print budgie smugglers The best kinds of parties are ones where it’s just you and your pals. Maybe you’ve anchored up on a sultry evening in a gentle bay off one of those islands around Corsica, or off Cannes, with ten or 15 of your friends and the champagne just flows. Then there’s that other kind, the huge, choreographed shindig. This is the speciality of the Monaco Grand Prix, which, as I write, is just around the corner. You know the kind of thing – cram 400 people onto some huge yacht in the harbour. You’ve got to lay down carpets. You’ve got…

the rules and the exception

The 35th America’s Cup is finally under way, and while we don’t yet know the final result, this is the time to think about the future and the next cycle of international sport’s oldest trophy. The rules and traditions of the America’s Cup stipulate that the winning team, or the yacht club that it represents, must accept the first challenge that is put to it. Clearly this can lead to some random challenges and big changes in boat and format. Therefore, if a team feels it has a realistic shot at winning, it will already have agreed to negotiate terms with a particular yacht club in order to avoid confusion, and the risk of a sideways challenge being thrown at them. For this America’s Cup, five of the six teams have taken…
