As the summer draws to a close, superyacht season reaches its zenith. September is a pinnacle month on the luxury events calendar and it’s one of our favourite times of year for one key reason – yacht shows. This month the world descends on the Riviera, and we join the elite as they make their way from the cities to the coast for a month of sun, sea and superyachts.

Our new ocean special is an essential guide to the very latest launches and the biggest names in the yachting world. From yacht show parties and exclusive previews, to nautical style and flavours of the ocean, we have brought together the finest things on the ground and on the waves.

Join us as we eat our way through the ocean’s greatest flavours in our Indulge section. From a tour of Britain’s only caviar farm to a beautifully illustrated guide to the UK’s best oysters, there’s much to sample. In Style, we present a guide to the yachting season’s wardrobe must-haves –nautical watches, fine pearls and Italian linen, while in Move we review the hottest new vehicles on land and sea, from the stunning Princess 30m to the roaring Jaguar F-Type SVR.

Elsewhere, we explore how the cruising industry is busting stereotypes, and travel from Barbados to Greece in pursuit of the best coastal escapes. While in Culture, we dive deep to discover innovative artworks on the sea bed – including Damian Hirst’s latest controversial sculpture project.

Finally, in Smart Living, we present a guide to the coolest properties and most stylish interiors on the planet. We also take you inside our star-studded shooting at Holland & Holland where celebrities such as Luke Pasqualino and Tamer Hassan went head-to-head with Olympic shooting champion Peter Wilson and our VIP guests. No prizes for guessing who won…

Enjoy the issue,
Rachel Ingram
