Megayacht News debuts new website

Megayacht News, the award-winning, independent website devoted to luxury yachts, announced a new look and URL for its site.

Relaunched to provide a contemporary design, the new Megayacht News features eye-catching components. Waterfall menus on every page make it easier to access current and archival content.

A slide show directly beneath these menus on the home page teases the top stories of the day, with links leading to full articles.

"Given Megayacht News' tremendous growth over the past few years, it's clear there's been a real need for real stories about yachts, builders, designers and related subjects," site founder Diane Byrne said in a statement. "A recent reader survey revealed that 91 percent of visitors were quite pleased with the site's content and that 96 percent planned to continue to read it regularly. It only made sense then, to give them a fresh, new look with even more fresh, new content, especially content they cannot get anywhere else."
