About the Author

Ron Holland - Celebrated yacht designer Ron Holland drew his first yacht at 19 years of age. He 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. His 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 Holland has developed unique relationships with his international clients, allowing him an intimate view of social and economic trends during the early days of the new millennium. Currently, Ron Holland lives and works in Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. He arrived in Vancouver having spent over 40 years in County Cork, Ireland after an invitation to go for the weekend. He lived in the USA after leaving New Zealand at 15 years of age. Ron is a father, grandfather, still racing boats, and continuing to travel to any port that calls him. Other titles by Ron Holland, "Splendour Under Sail" (Shoreline Publishing 1988).

Reviews

"A life Worth Living. This book will not give you the technical expertise to design a yacht but it is a wonderful, rollicking adventure story of Ron Holland growing up and getting to the top of his profession in often hilarious steps. In any successful life chance plays a part but more important is the ability to capitalize on good luck and the ability to somehow derive benefit from bad luck as well. Ron Hollands story is inspiring, fascinating and amusing. It is a good easy read and beautifully presented book." -- Amazon Customer, July 2018
