Paul AshtonOwning a superyacht is all about getting away from it all but there are times when you need to base your yacht in a home port. It’s refreshing to see a number of operators increasing their offerings for superyachts, and we’ve been rounding up latest developments in the Mediterranean.

As in our previous edition, when we brought some exclusive insights aboard the superyacht Regina during the filming of the latest Bond film Skyfall, this week we’re brining you yet more movie magic, with the 44-metre Intermarine Lady M serving as a backdrop for some scenes of Martin Scorcese’s latest film The Wolf of Wall Street at North Cove Marina in New York City.

Some years back, the WallyPower 118 made a cameo appearance in the sci-fi thriller The Island. A fitting choice as there is something about a new Wally that is touched by the future, and the sailing superyacht Better Place is no exception. We’ve been aboard this amazing Bugatti blue-hulled beauty and you can enjoy our superb photo gallery.

Finally, you can enjoy our profile of Dick van Lent, the driving force behind the Royal Van Lent shipyard and making it a key element in keeping Feadship at the top of its game.

By the time you read this, we’ll be on our way to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and we’ll be bringing you news and views from the world’s biggest on-water show.
