About Megayacht News


Megayacht News enjoys strong, continuous growth year after year. It conducts independently tabulated reader surveys on a yearly basis to ensure it is delivering the right information at the right time. Few other yachting media, whether Web-only companies or both print and Web, take this approach.

The latest reader survey, conducted in August 2014, reveals several impressive facts. For the sixth year in a row, readers overwhelmingly rate Megayacht News higher than other websites in terms of quality, originality, and timeliness of content:

  • 53 percent of readers have been loyal visitors for three years or longer, with 21 percent of them reading since day one
  • 44 percent have contacted a yacht builder, designer, or other firm as a result of reading an article on MegayachtNews.com, with an additional 11 percent planning to do so
  • 88 percent would recommend the site to a friend, with 59 percent of them saying they are very likely to do so
  • 93 percent plan to continue visiting the site regularly, with 78 percent of them saying they are very likely to do so
