April marks The Triton’s 15th trip around the sun

Publisher’s Point: by Lucy Reed

Our April edition is our 180th issue, which marks our 15th anniversary.

As a journalist, somewhat cynical after 30 years in the business, I’m not really impressed. Lots of companies have been around a lot longer, family owned and way more successful.

But as a small business owner, though, I’m extremely proud — of myself, of my team, of our work product each month. Over the past 15 years, hundreds of captains have attended our 180 captains roundtable discussions, thousands of you have attended more than 250 of our monthly networking events, and we’ve created the best crew-focused event in the industry — the Triton Expo, our 23rd version of which takes place in Fort Lauderdale on April 17.

We work hard, every day, to uncover and report the topics and issues that impact the professional captains and crew who run luxury yachts. And we tap into more than a dozen columnists — many of whom are crew or former crew — to share their expertise in areas ranging from the interior and crew life to medical emergencies and leadership.

In this age of global access to free news, it’s often a challenge to convince advertisers to place print ads. It’s an outdated medium, some say. But those smart companies who trust us with their marketing message every month know that we are the best way to reach yacht captains and crew. And that’s because of our content — content our industry just can’t find anywhere else.

Journalism matters. If you enjoy reading your Triton each month or you appreciate the events we organize and host, please take a minute to take our online survey so we can get a sense of what you think.

Even after 15 years, it never hurts to get a little constructive feedback.
