Note from the editor
PROTECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION IS IMPORTANT TO US

Your privacy is of our utmost concern. We will never disclose your personal details to any person without your consent. However, if you use our website to contact a yacht broker for further information on a superyacht for charter, your contact details will be directly transmitted to that broker and for no other purpose – see full details. We will never use your personal information for any other reason other than those purposes for which you have expressly consented to.
