    Megayacht News Radio: Bradford Marine

    Megayacht News Radio: Bradford Marine

    John and Michael Kelly are more than father and son. The two have always wanted to work together, especially within a family business framework, and even more so wanted a family business tied to the boating lifestyle that they've long enjoyed. As of a year ago, the duo's dream came true. They acquired the well-known shipyard Bradford Marine in Fort Lauderdale. They additionally own the Bradford Marine location in Freeport, Grand Bahama.

    Having visited many marinas and shipyards as customers, John and Michael came to believe that there simply had to be a way to simplify the yacht ownership and management experience. With this in mind, they're transforming and expanding Bradford Marine. The ultimate goal is to grow Bradford's community of owners, captains, and crew through top-notch service, premium covered dockage, and of course a family approach to yachting. We’ll be talking about all of this in today’s podcast.

    Megayacht News Radio: Ben Harrison, Harrison Eidsgaard

    The directors of Harrison Eidsgaard have extensive backgrounds in yacht design, as well as finance—something quite unexpected for a superyacht design studio. Yet, it's a successful combination of disciplines for this UK-based team, as Ben Harrison, one of the directors, explains in this episode of Megayacht News Radio.

    Ben also discusses: 
    “the Tango effect,” a.k.a. what happened after the Feadship Tango made people sit up and take notice of the studiowhy Harrison Eidsgaard does, and doesn't, have a "signature style"what it's like working with creative, forward-thinking, customers—both owners and shipyards alikeand how the studio's current projects span a broad range, from as small as 7 meters to upwards of 90 meters

    Megayacht News Radio: A Conversation With Glancy Fawcett

    Megayacht News Radio: A Conversation With Glancy Fawcett

    Whenever any of us sees a yacht on the horizon, oftentimes our first thought is, "I wonder what that looks like inside?” Yacht interiors are specialties for Glancy Fawcett—but the company is far more than just a showroom with items on the shelves. In fact, it custom designs and manufactures some pieces specifically for owners, plus has a strong emphasis on, in its words, “luxury that does not cost the Earth.” In this episode of Megayacht News Radio, we speak with Elizabeth Caddick and Tom Batty of  the UK-based company to get the details.

    Megayacht News Radio: Deb Radtke, American Yacht Agents

    Megayacht News Radio: Deb Radtke, American Yacht Agents

    As the president of American Yacht Agents, Deb Radtke works with a lot of international captains and crew. She assists them with tasks related to cruising the United States and overseeing refits here, including advising on what visas they need to enter the country. Unfortunately, despite abundant accurate information readily available, crew still sometimes apply for the wrong visa--relying on hearsay from misinformed friends, or bad advice spread on social media. In this episode of Megayacht News Radio, Radtke sets the record straight.

    In fact, she discusses:

    * which visa crew need, and why--as well as which visa is not the right one

    * why listening to chatter in the crew house instead of the captain can prevent crew from entering the United States

    * why social media is not your friend

    * how her own background as a captain helps properly educate other captains and crew.

    Megayacht News Radio: Rob McCallum, EYOS Expeditions

    Megayacht News Radio: Rob McCallum, EYOS Expeditions

    Some of the most remote places on earth are accessible only by water. EYOS Expeditions helps superyacht owners, guests, and crews get there, thanks to its team's decades of experience exploring them. But, it doesn't solely secure permits, design itineraries, or arrange specialist guides. EYOS further takes a leading role in new builds whose owners want to pursue adventurous itineraries--whether diving to depths unknown, or seeing Antarctica up close. In fact, it has an ongoing relationship with Damen, which just launched its first SeaXplorer explorer yacht.

    In this episode, Rob McCallum, EYOS' founding partner, talks about how he and his team advised on details from the SeaXplorer's hull form and bridge layout to the tender davits and Zodiac boarding arrangements. In addition, having led multiple expeditions to the RMS Titanic and battleship Bismark, McCallum explains how overall EYOS works one on one with owners and crew to ensure their safety both above and below the surface.
