21st of October 2016


Bain & Company released their annual Global Luxury Study yesterday. CNN Money reports:

Overall spending on all luxury goods and services is set to grow 4% this year

Contest Yachts’ Construction Sheds Covered With Solar Panels

14th of October 2016


Hopefully this move by Contest Yachts will inspire other Dutch yacht yards: 1,270 solar panels were installed on the roof

of several Contest construction halls. In total they can generate 300,000 kWh of clean and renewable enery per year.

The average Dutch household uses about 3,000 kWh per annum. So the Medemblik based yacht builder now generates

enough solar power for one hundred families

In Holland companies and residents can choose their own energy supplier: selecting green wind / solar / hydro power

sources is really easy. It just takes a few minutes, all online
