Issue 3


We have just marked the end of our first year in business and things are going according to plan. Cecil Wright has experienced both a very healthy charter season and the sale of the 55.5m Issana. It was a good time to take on one more team member, Liz Cox, who recently started and is helping across the board. This is not the beginning of a major expansion, however. Our success undoubtedly lies with the fact that we are small and focused – which is exactly how we intend to remain. 

The market is clearly picking up and the demand for new yachts of quality is beginning to outstrip supply. It’s fortuitous that this coincides with the widening of the Dutch locks, an event that Dick van Lent – chairman of the prestigious Royal van Lent shipyard – discusses in this issue. Feadship – the Royal van Lent cooperative shipyard venture with Royal De Vries and De Voogt Naval Architects – is already the market leader and now they have dramatically increased the capacity of what they can produce.

Cecil Wright will be based on the 43.9m Silver Dream at the 2014 Monaco Yacht Show. Do call or email us for an invitation – we look forward to welcoming you.
