Legendary Editor Retires

Legendary Editor Retires

Peter Nielsen, editor-in-chief of the US publication Sail Magazine has retired to do more sailing. His successor as editor in chief is Adam Court, Peter’s long standing assistant editor. 

Peter, who has been a huge supporter of Kraken Yachts, joined White Dragon, the Kraken 66 Flagship in Cape Town, South Africa, to carry out a sail test.

He commented in the visitors log upon his departure: ‘Beautiful yacht and a fantastic design.’

His report in SAIL Magazine concluded with these very complimentary words, ‘On the evidence of this boat, Kraken Yachts is a worthy addition to the slender ranks of dedicated bluewater cruisers. Solidly built and boasting a generous standard inventory at a highly competitive price point, the Kraken 66 deserves a long, hard look from anyone lucky enough to be shopping for a luxury cruiser in this size range.’

Thanks for your fantastic support Peter, good luck with your well deserved sailing retirement.  Maybe a K50 for your retirement yacht !?

Dick Beaumont 

Chairman Kraken Yachts
