Celebrated yacht designer Ron Holland drew his first yacht at 19 years of age and 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.
Holland’s seminal influence on the then-new category of superyachts, those toys of the rich and super-rich, brought him fresh success, and an introduction to a world of fascinating personalities: business tycoons, royalty and rock stars. For over 50 years Ron’s innovative designs have repeatedly shaken up the world of sailing.
His memoir ‘All The Oceans – designing by the seat of my pants’ is being launched in Australia in February 2018.
Join us for the world premiere book launch at Sandringham Yacht Club where Holland will share tales from his new book and give insights into being one of the world’s leading yacht designers.
The book will be available to purchase ($75 RRP) on the evening and you will have the opportunity to have your book signed after the presentation.
