Episode 57,  Oct 22, 2021, 02:02 PM

In this week’s BOAT Briefing, the team discuss the yacht that Richard Burton bought Elizabeth Taylor, Kalizmah, and her exciting new refit; editor Stewart Campbell reports back following a recent trip to Saudi Arabia; and travel editor Georgia Boscawen interviews Martin Enckell, one of the co-founders of Nansen Polar Expeditions, who she joined onboard the 72 metre expedition vessel Nansen Explorer in Iceland earlier this year.

There’s also news of a 127m yacht rumoured to belong to Amazon’s Jeff Bezos; Van de Valk’s new “explorer-type” motor yacht, Lady Lene; Silent Yachts’ new 31m flagship, the Silent 100 Explorer; and a highly-customised steel 50m currently in build at Heesen. The data story focuses on the growth of the explorer yacht market, and where the boats are heading.
