In late 2018, Andrea Tagliaferro founded Yacht Dame, a website highlighting women in yachting, along with sharing news about the yachting lifestyle. Just last year, she expanded her reach into podcasting, via Yacht Femme. The most recent podcast features an interview with our editor, Diane M. Byrne.
Just like Yacht Dame, Yacht Femme sheds light on yachting by introducing listeners to the leading women in the industry. Conversations cover who they are, how they got into the business, as well as what they do.
In the episode, recorded just a few weeks ago, Tagliaferro and Byrne discuss:
- how Byrne became involved in the superyacht industry, and how she landed her first job in yachting on the media side
- what spurred the decision to create MegayachtNews.com
- how her opinion editorial on the sinking of Yogi rose from anger over rumor mongering at the time of the incident
- what opportunities Byrne sees in the near future for the yachting industry, specifically virtual reality and sustainability (and how sustainability involves far more than being “green”)
- and more.
