Ric DiIanni, Executive Producer at House Films®, said, “With the second-biggest economy in the world, China produces 2 new billionaire families per month, yet yachting culture has not taken hold in the way most predicted it would. We’re excited to be able to show our upscale and HNW Chinese fans what yachting is all about. It’s not about status, but about the freedom to go to the most beautiful places in the world, surrounded by the people you love to be with.”
Producer/host Sarah Zhang 张晓文 wants to raise awareness of the importance of the oceans to our survival on the planet and will highlight that by featuring organizations working to preserve the oceans. Sarah says “It’s important that we raise awareness of these issues in China among consumers, as no efforts to protect our oceans will be successful without China on board”.
The first 3 episodes of the show were shot on location at the Royal Phuket Marina in Thailand with Royal Phuket Marina providing location support as well as access to their luxury yacht for the production.
