BIGGER, BETTER, GREENER: YACHTING PAGES MEDIA GROUP LAUNCHES 2019 MED BOOK
Yachting Pages Media Group has launched its 2019/20 Mediterranean directory – its biggest in eight years. It comes equipped with 16 new marinas, enhanced map listings and improved green credentials.
The 16th edition is bigger, better and greener than ever before, aligned with Yachting Pages’ eco aims for the year ahead.
Showcasing superyacht services across Europe, Africa and the Middle East, the new book includes 23,000 listed suppliers and services, and detailed port and marina maps for superyacht crew cruising the territory.
Boasting a cleaner look and feel, the industry-leading superyacht directory this year features clearly defined map information to help owners and crew get the information they need.
This year’s book has, for the first time, been printed on FSC®-certified paper by Italian publishers L.E.G.O. This accreditation is a mark of responsible forestry, which demonstrates Yachting Pages’ continued efforts to lessen its environmental footprint. As always, the book is fully recyclable.
SYM Superyacht Management and Nautech Group are proudly sponsoring the directory's front cover and spine for a third year in a row, while Yachting Pages’ long-term relationship with Lürssen continues, with the shipyard in place on the back cover for the 15th consecutive year.
The latest Mediterranean directory is now available via Yachting Pages’ hand-delivery service, Yachting Pages Delivers (YPD). Beginning in the South of France in April, copies will be delivered directly to superyacht crews across the Mediterranean on YPD distribution trips. Throughout the year, we will be visiting Mallorca, Italy, Spain and Greece.
As well as hand deliveries, Yachting Pages will also be distributing copies of its directories throughout the year during its attendance at boat shows and events including Palma Superyacht Show, Cannes Yachting Festival, Monaco Yacht Show and Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, to name but a few.
Those unable to attend a boat show can enquire about obtaining a copy from a Yachting Pages stockist, or request a copy via email.
Steve Crowe, Yachting Pages Media Group founder and CEO, commented, “We are excited to launch our bigger, better, greener Yachting Pages Mediterranean directory later this month. It is our biggest book for eight years, highlighting the high level of print usage within the superyacht industry, our continued popularity and the return on investment when advertising with us.
“In line with Yachting Pages’ eco-conscious ethos, we have made a concerted effort this year to ensure our directories are sustainably produced and fully recyclable. Our distinctive pink book is easily recognised throughout the Med as the best superyacht resource for captains and crew.”
The media group’s two other regional directories, Yachting Pages USA, The Americas & Caribbean and Yachting Pages Australasia, Asia-Pacific & Far East will be available in late August 2019, with the booking deadline for advertising set in June.
