All The Oceans - Designing by the seat of my pants - Book launch

by Charlene Yates Bishop 16 Feb 2018 16:21 PST 21,22 & 26 February 2018

Celebrated yacht designer Ron Holland drew his first yacht at 19 years of age. He rapidly made a name for himself as one of the most successful and sought-after designers in the highly competitive world of international ocean racing, before advancing to bigger things.

His seminal influence on the then-new category of superyachts, those toys of the rich and super-rich, brought him fresh success, and an introduction to a world of fascinating personalities: business tycoons, royalty and rock stars. For over 50 years Ron's innovative designs have repeatedly shaken up the world of sailing.

His memoir entitled All The Oceans – Designing by the seat of my pants is being launched in Australia in February 2018.

Join us to listen to Ron share tales from his new book and give insights into being one of the world's leading yacht designers.

Don't miss this wonderful opportunity to meet Ron, secure one of the first copies of the book and have it signed.
