Sailing catamarans could be key in the challenge to attract motor yacht owners into the sailing yacht market, a panel of industry figures has said.
Speaking at BOAT International’s inaugural Life Under Sail summit at the Yacht Club de Monaco, sailing yacht designers discussed how design could encourage more people into the sport.
Figures from BOAT’s 2020 Global Order Book show there are currently nine motor yachts to every one sailing yacht while sailing yacht projects account for just 6.9% of the overall Global Order Book.
