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 Ron’s innovative designs have repeatedly shaken up the world of sailing.
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. Ron is a father, grandfather, still races boats, and continues to travel to any port that calls him.
Ron's book "All the Oceans - Designing by the seat of my pants" is available from April 2018 : http://alltheoceansbook.com/
