editor’s letter

Of all the things affected by the government shutdown, we never thought our cover would be one of them. It turned out that with so much of the Coast Guard furloughed, Spectre, the new 227ft Benetti, was unable to check into the US and therefore rendezvous with waiting photographers in Palm Beach. Cue lots of panicked back-and-forth with Benetti to formulate a Plan B. Fortunately, sense prevailed, the shutdown ended and this new fully custom superstar cruised into US waters just in time for some photos to be taken (page 68). A big “phew” rang out in our Fort Lauderdale offices that day (and all the way across the sea in Livorno). Urgency is a bit of a theme this month. As part of our Ocean Talks event, to…

Sam Fortescue Sam has sailed since he was two years old and written for a living since the age of 22. Time, and a life-changing cruise from England to the Caribbean and back, eventually allowed him to combine the two. This month he wrote our extreme cruising feature on page 123. Were there any surprises in the stories you heard while researching your feature? I was astonished to hear that the Inuit still hunt narwhal What would be your top pick for a real sailing adventure? Right at the top of my list is Greenland. Few places offer such a stern test of seamanship, or reward the effort so richly Who would you take with you? My grandparents were among the first scientists ever to overwinter on…

Small packages This 12ft scale model gives a glimpse into the CosmosTank tests at the Wolfson Unit, part of the University of Southampton in the UK, have helped fine-tune Dutch builder Heesen’s new flagship, Project Cosmos. With an ambitious top speed of nearly 30 knots, the 265ft, 1,700 GT aluminum yacht is also designed to cruise at more than 20 knots using an evolution of the Fast Displacement Hull Form by Van Oossanen Naval Architects and propulsion by Rolls-Royce Marine. Aside from its interesting performance characteristics, the new flagship, with styling by Winch Design and interior by Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design, will have a helipadcum-open-air movie theater, a glass-bottom pool and a vast beach club with fold-down platforms. The next step is the keel-laying planned for May. heesenyachts.com…

a win for sport yachts

An influx of young wealth into the sport yacht market has led to a resurgence of this sector. These slick, fast boats took the worst hit of any yacht type during the global financial crisis, when brokers reported that those taking their first steps into yachting were retreating. But a total of 56 projects have been recorded in 2019’s Global Order Book, a significant year-on-year increase from 39 last year.Many new sport models will debut this year, including the Azimut Grande S10, Otam’s 85 GTS and the Mazu 82. Pershing launched its new flagship, the 140, in February and has a second hull under way. “There is a generation of new buyers – young money, self-made in creative and intelligent ways,” says Pershing’s sales director, Nada Serafini. “In today’s…

the designer who dared

In February, the fashion world mourned the passing of one of its most prolific creative forces, Karl Lagerfeld. Born Karl Otto Lagerfeldt (he dropped the “t” to make his name sound “more commercial”) in Hamburg, he won a design competition in 1955 that landed him a job as Pierre Balmain’s assistant. He moved on to the atelier of Parisian couturier Jean Patou, worked as a freelance designer for Chloé and Curiel, and in 1965 began his work with Fendi – a collaboration that continued until his death. Lagerfeld’s most famous association, however, started in the early 1980s, when Chanel chairman Alain Wertheimer approached him to design for the house, which at the time was struggling to attract a younger clientele. Lagerfeld was able to delve into Chanel’s history and…
