‘Booming’ is the word Andrew Bond, Sales Broker of Fraser Yachts, uses to describe the current state of the superyacht market. Although the Covid pandemic is far from over, Andrew sees a strong increase in the popularity of yachting. At the same time, the industry is still struggling with travel restrictions and limited client visits to yachts and shipyards: does that pose a threat to sales and charters? And what about the long-term outlook for this market? How can the industry respond to shifts in demographic and the demand for sustainable yachting? In this episode of YachtTalk we take a closer look, together with Andrew and Mark Cavendish, Executive Commercial Officer of Heesen, at these trends and developments.
