Superyachts Vol 2 1989
SUPERYACHTS 2 It is not difficult to see why the building yards are reporting healthy order books in this 2nd volume of THE SUPERYACHTS, as the designs featured display the extent of creativity currently on the superyacht circuit. Outstanding designs such as the Trump Princess (this volume also features a foreword by her owner, Donald Trump); the 6th Oceanfast build Mystique; and the spectacular Heesen 54-knot Octopussy are blended together with the marvellously traditional sailing vessels of William Fife's Moonbeam and Aquarius, and prove to be a very successful cocktail in THE SUPERYACHTS 2nd publication. For the 2nd volume of THE SUPERYACHTS, 2 new sections have been added - Supercharter and The Directory - as well as reviews of 20 superyachts, motor and sail, that feature in this edition's 222 pages. As the signs suggest 1989 to be on the threshold of another 'Golden Age' of the large private yacht, such a trend is supported by the fantastic yacht designs featured in this edition. From Donald Trump's 86-metre 1980 Benetti Trump Princess and the 'big ship' inspired Al Menwar to the classically inspired schooner design of Gloria and the 3-masted Aquarius, both classic and contemporary are catered for.
