Issue Highlights

We take a glimpse into the future and a look into the past and with a full preview of METSTRADE and the new technologies that will be on display; and the intriguing history behind the event which this year celebrates its 35th anniversary.  

Brunswick’s CEO, David Foulkes, shares candid thoughts about vertical and horizontal integration, Navico potential, and the realities of cybersecurity in 2023. 

We get up close with Polaris to learn about its global market expansion plans; learn how Sea-Doo is reinventing the pontoon boat concept; and how one Dutch builder is realising the promise of 3D printed boats.

With the world moving steadily towards electrified transport, we investigate the latest in battery technology innovation, and profile an Australian start-up’s plan to harness robotics to improve sustainability.

And of course, we have our regular market updates with a full lowdown on business levels and prospects for 2024 in the US, Netherlands and Spain.
