Last chance Marine13, SCIBS 2013 launches, Einstein's dream boat
First up, must explain the delay on your newsletter for the past couple of Tuesdays - we are adding two servers to speed up our sites, to accommodate rapid growth internationally.
Ultimately, it will deliver more rapid access and reliability wherever you are in the world and whatever form you use - tablet, desktop, smartphone, laptop.
Now on with the news: our exclusive this week is the first details of the collaboration among industry stalwarts and the new generation of young-guns in the Elandra Yachts project - the brainchild of Tom Barry-Cotter and Luke Durman, who with Grant Senior and Billy Cranston, will result in the 2014 launch of a sleek new 50ft sportsyacht.
We will have the preview of the first hull in May, so watch this space!
There's plenty of news from around the globe - shows, new products, people moves, legislation and innovation.
Coinciding with the 25th Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, which is going in to hyperdrive as we move in to April, the second annual Riviera Festival of Boating promises an expanded educational program in 2013 with a raft of new events planned for the four day experience.
The Riviera Festival and Boat show will feature 71 exclusive educational and social events and a Premium Brokerage display - Stephen Milne Click Here to view large photo
Held at Riviera’s 14-hectare, state-of-the-art Coomera River-front facility, the Riviera Festival of Boating boasts over 76 individual educational and social events held over four days and is open to owners, media and members of the public. Last year organisers confirmed more than 1500 registrations and this year’s Festival is expected to well and truly exceed this. So get in early and register your interest!
Marine13 International Conference and Trade Exhibition is just over two weeks away. If you haven't booked already, get online or get in touch and gain access to 25 high-value sessions each day - take your pick!
Day registrations are available for Monday 29 April and Tuesday 30 April priced at $490 per registration, including all delegate materials, refreshments, lunch and conference and trade exhibition access.
It will be a thoroughly worthwhile B2B networking and information event - one that will add immediately to your business prowess and recharge your batteries for the industry. I will be there and covering it for MBW and Sail-World - taking the Marine13 message to our 2 million+ readers in the region and around the world.
On flights of fantasy, what if Einstein commissioned a yacht? What would it look like and how would it combine precision styling with performance?
That is the conundrum Feadship and a Dutch communications company pondered and then solved, with the aptly named 'Relativity'.
Einstein was selected as the first Future Concept 'client' because he was an interesting and passionate scientist with a great sense of humour, who incidentally was also a passionate sailor and owner of yachts during his lifetime.
You learn something every day . . .
Enjoy this week's batch and remember, there's a whole heap more each day, so drop by regularly.
Sunny skies, pleasant boating!
