What started as a ‘yacht spotter’ hobby, turned into a fast-growing yachting site with thousands of unique daily visitors.

In 2009 SuperYachtFan in its current format was published online and soon the focus changed from ‘yacht photos’ to ‘yacht owners’, creating the Super Yacht Owners Register. A database with more than 1,450 yacht owners.

This was an instant success as many people around the world are interested in, or curious about, these multi-million dollar yachts and their wealthy owners. (Luxury travels of the Billionaire Boys Club)
