Ron Holland presents Extravagant Yachts
Nautical Nights – MMBC Speaker Series
Join us at the Maritime Museum of British Columbia, Nautical Nights Series for a presentation by yacht designer and author, Ron Holland.
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.
Join Ron, at the Maritime Museum of British Columbia for a lively evening with Q&A following the presentation.
Signed copies of his memoir All The Oceans, Designing by the seat of my pants, will be available at this event.
