RINAutic magazine: 2020 issue

In this edition, we look at how technology and digitalisation have become key to doing business during the Covid-19 pandemic

Welcome to RINAUTIC, our magazine covering the latest trends and developments in the yachting sector. With Covid-19 dominating the headlines, we look at how technology and digitalisation has become key to doing business during the pandemic. And with the yacht industry showing impressive growth in recent years, what does the future hold now?

Elsewhere, we talk to the Water Revolution Foundation about its goal to reduce the environmental footprint of the yachting industry using science-based techniques, and the Superyacht Builders Association’s efforts to give the superyacht industry a louder voice in matters of regulation and sustainability.

Key industry figures such as HeySea Yachts, Tankoa Yachts, Van der Valk Shipyard and Guido de Groot Design discuss what the future ‘smart’ yacht will look like, and we discuss a new trend for ‘miniaturised’ megayachts. Meanwhile, we get the media’s point of view with interviews with Barche nautical magazine and media company SuperYacht Times.

We also report on ways to prevent noise pollution to protect sea life, potential new guidelines for polar sailing, as well as new biosafety measures to reduce the spread of infection in the Covid-19 era. And finally, we hear from a ‘movie star’ how a renovation and paint job landed the ship a role in the film Dunkirk.
