Heesen has announced the sale of 50m Hybrid superyacht Project Electra, the news coming shortly after its launch at the beginning of February. Electra is the second hull of the Dutch shipyard’s 5000 aluminium class following the build of Home in 2017.
The demands of the modern day yacht owner are wild, wonderful, and immensely unpredictable in their variety. With requests ranging from provisioning superyachts in wildly remote destinations, to delivering specific wine imported from a small vineyard in the south of France, the task of the superyacht provisioner can be demanding and at times seemingly impossible. In response, a whole fleet of superyacht provisioning companies have risen through the ranks, whose modus operandi is the absolute necessity of predicting requirements, 6-star service and being ever on top of their game. At the forefront of these is Shoreside Support, whose global presence and established reputation spanning from Miami to Monaco allows them to successfully service over 150 superyachts with fresh, top-quality produce.
America’s reputation as a leading destination for new construction and refit is nothing novel to the yachting industry. Superyachts.com spoke with Burger Boat Company, whose proficiency in an array of areas spanning from new build to refit and maintenance is redefining America’s reputation in the global yachting industry. Ron Cleveringa, Vice President Sales & Marketing at Burger Boat Company, took the time to speak with us about a yard with its very own unique heritage and wealth of experience, and how it is spearheading America’s efforts within the world stage of yachting.
In 2019 we dedicated considerable energy to the discussion of superyacht design; an immensely dynamic field in which designers and architects must constantly strive to predict, realise and surpass their clients’ desires before they have even been conceived. As we reflect on this discussion in the new year, we spoke with Andrew Krueger, President of H. Krueger & Associates - an established US-based interior design firm boasting an enviously wide portfolio, who have now momentously finalised their 50th year of successfully realising their clients’ every vision.
