    BOAT Briefing: Which boats won at the Design & Innovation Awards?

    In this week’s episode Charlotte and Sophia are back in the recording studio following a busy couple of weeks at the Superyacht Design Festival in Milan and the Ultra High Network Insight Summit in Monaco.  As well as talking over the Design & Innovation Awards winners and their festival highlights, Charlotte also reveals some of the insights on owners’ expectations that she picked up from the conference in Monaco. They also discuss the sinking of a yacht off the Turkish coast, Joe Biden’s comments on the yachting industry and the return of Below Deck Mediterranean on board a well-known Hessen. In the news this week Heesen’s Book Ends has been spotted on sea trials and 70 metre Nobiskrug Project 795 has been seen for the first time since October 2020.

    The Big BOAT Interview: with novelist Emma Bamford

    The Big BOAT Interview: with novelist Emma Bamford

    In this week's Big BOAT Interview, we sit down with novelist Emma Bamford ahead of the release of debut thriller Deep Water. BOAT’s former production editor Emma has harnessed all of her sailing experience for this dark tale, which is based around a honeymoon couple that sail to the paradise island of Amarante. Emma talks about how her global travels – including a dramatic decision in her thirties to quit her job in journalism to fly to Borneo to work on yacht with a man she had never met before and his cat – influenced the storyline and why yachties are always drawn to adventure.

    In this week's Big BOAT Interview, we sit down with the most successful Olympic sailor of all time, Sir Ben Ainslie.

    The Big BOAT Interview: Rory and Elizabeth Brooks, the owners of the 32m, 1972 Feadship Heavenly Daze, and 15.5m 1956 Hera

    In this week’s Big Boat Interview, Charlotte catches up with Rory and Elizabeth Brooks, the owners of the 32m, 1972 Feadship Heavenly Daze, and 15.5m 1956 Hera. The couple discuss the best way of keeping a classic yacht in tip top shape, their bookings for the upcoming charter season, proposed environmental targets for existing, rather than new, yachts, and the rookie mistakes they made in their early days - as well as why having a beautiful boat in the Mediterranean is the ultimate trump card, when it comes to luring teenagers out for family holidays…

    The Big BOAT Interview: Carlee Jackson

    The Big BOAT Interview: Carlee Jackson

    When four young women of colour who worked in shark science met online, they had no idea where their casual conversation would lead. Two years later and their charity, Minorities in Shark Science (MISS), has gathered over 400 members worldwide, as well as a 2022 Ocean Award.

    Carlee Jackson, MISS’s Director of Communications, talks to BOAT International about their journey so far, and why she hopes that MISS will ensure that young gender minorities of colour who are interested in science will never feel as isolated as she once did.
