yachts 2016 cover issue


The unfailing yacht craze. This comes as good news for Europe, and for three countries especially (Germany, the Netherlands and Italy), who are retaining the leadership in the global shipbuilding industry. The battle for ship size is raging. The world's largest yacht (with a gross tonnage of almost 16,000) was delivered by German yard Lürssen this year. Meanwhile, owners have started to buy more expensive tenders and yacht toys, which are gradually replacing the conventional jet-skis.

Where does France stand? While a yard like Monte Carlo Yachts (based in Italy but owned by the Bénéteau group) is successfully selling motor yachts - whose latest MYC 80 was launched in July - others such as Couach, CNB, JFA, Ocea or Grand Large Yachting are keeping to less spectacular vessels (exploration yachts, sailing yachts), in line with the current market trend focused on upgrading.
