‘YACHTstyle is just six issues old but has already won the loyalty of the boating public,’ said Suzy Rayment, Managing Editor of YACHTstyle. ‘We have been receiving extremely positive feedback from boat enthusiasts and others in the boating field…’
The judges noted that ‘YACHTstyle is a meticulously edited publication. Its modern and energetic layout makes good use of panoramic shots, sweeping typography and generous use of colour. The no-nonsense feature spreads with solid typography gave the magazine a fresh look, as well as a touch of class.’
