RON HOLLAND PRESENTS “ALL THE OCEANS”
Award winning 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 sailing superyachts, those toys of the rich and super-rich, brought him fresh success, and an introduction to a world of fascinating international personalities: business tycoons, royalty and rock stars. For over 50 years Ron’s innovative designs have repeatedly shaken up the world of sailing. His most recent accolade is the Lifetime Achievement Award presented by Boat International Media at the Design and Innovation Awards in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy.
Ron Holland published his memoir “All The Oceans” in 2018, it is a Foreword Reviews, 2018 INDIE Awards Finalist!, the winners will be announced June, 2019.
