Taiwan flexes megayacht might, Superyacht Aust seeks GBRMPA plan

This week, Taiwan is the flavour of our news and features. This world power in yacht building - seventh in terms of output in the superyacht and megayacht sector - is eager to be seen on a global stage as an innovator, pioneer and rising force, with yacht builders hosting an international media contingent for a tour of factories, insight into its ambition and preview of its inaugural Taiwan International Boat Show scheduled for April 2014.

Close to China in geography and cultural/administrative ties, Taiwan looks to its massive population for potential clients with a burgeoning appetite for yachts, while still focusing on growth in the US and other markets, including Australia. But there are plenty of barriers to growth, as the industry itself admits.

Please enjoy the various features, as well as video interviews which will join them later this week, including exclusives with John Lu, founder of the Horizon Group and head of the Taiwan Yacht Industry Association, and Jurij Korenc, the president of IFBSO about the organisation's goals, its resources and their belief in Taiwan's capabilities to host an international event.

Other stories too gleaned from around our region, such as updates on the Melbourne Boat Show and Superyacht Australia's report from the recent DestinationQ conference and its keen request to see the Management Plan for the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.
