Preparing for Surprise: Innovation Week

Just 10 years ago, the world economy plunged into the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

What a difference a decade makes.

While builders are not producing the number of new builds that they were 11 years ago, design and technology have advanced significantly.

In 2018, the editors of Yachts International attended the most prestigious yacht shows in the world and visited numerous shipyards to see the latest launches. The following are our picks of the year’s best builds, finest designs and most impressive technology.
