Ex­pe­ri­ence Counts

Power & Motor Yacht - - JUDGEMENT DAY -

David Mac­Far­lane and Jim Ewing be­gan their long­time boatbuilding col­lab­o­ra­tion early in the 1990s at Alden Yachts.

“David was ab­so­lutely a men­tor to me,” Ewing says, “and from the be­gin­ning, we shared sen­si­bil­ity for de­sign based on scale.”

Mac­Far­lane and Ewing have part­nered with Su Ma­rine in Is­tan­bul, Turkey, to be the ex­clu­sive builder of Re­liant’s yachts. This team un­der­stands that the boatbuilding world dif­fers a lot from the way it was 30 years ago.

“It’s a global in­dus­try,” Mac­Far­lane says, “and you have to com­pete on that ba­sis. What hasn’t changed is the boat­ing pub­lic’s pas­sion for a beau­ti­ful boat. We know we can de­liver that and also pro­vide value and com­pet­i­tive pric­ing.”
