Yacht Focus-Sept 2014
Why hybrids and alternative fuels are changing the shape of yacht design, how Spanish flair is forging new opportunities for the Med and its fleet of superyachts and LR’s role as the leading class society for the larger yacht. These are just a few of the themes of the September Yacht Focus, which has been specially produced for the Monaco Yacht Show.
Read the views of Richard Schiferli, Secretary General of the Paris MoU, on the yacht industry and port state control and what yachtowners and operators can do to prepare their vessels for regular inspections.
The magazine also traces the many hi-tech changes that have occurred recently in this fast-moving sector – from hybrid propulsion to yachts that can be operated entirely on Hy-Store Li-ion batteries – and the growing number of owners seeking to reduce their carbon footprint.
