ON BOARD PLANET NINE A taste of future yachting
Much has been written about Millennials and the future of yachting. If we look back to the 90s and the first generation of IT and hedge fund entrepreneurs, the majority moved into yachting only their after businesses had been consolidated. In a break with the past, and rather than buying into the glitzy champagne Med life-style, they focused on adventure yachting projects. They wanted yachts that could do things, go places and accomplish some form of new and exciting ground-breaking activity.
Millennials will undoubtably continue this trend – in a few years when their businesses claim less of their attention. Planet Nine is a forerunner of this market. She has range and capability. She is intimate and versatile with numerous areas which can double as something else depending where Planet Nine is and how she is being used. She is equally at home in hot and cold climates. She was built for sharing, planning and exploring far-flung regions.
