Today, we continue to fly the flag of innovation
and have partnered withWealth-X to create
this first edition of
The State of Wealth, Luxury
. The only report of its kind to
take a comprehensive look at the changing
world of luxury.
Together withWealth-X, the global authority
on wealth intelligence; whose award-winning
research and thought leadership are regularly
cited by renowned media outlets such as
, and the
we shed light on how the shifting sands of
wealth and luxury affect trends in yachting.
We highlight how yachting can, in fact,
become an all-encompassing platform for
experiencing the very definition of luxury.
Wealth-X’s researchers and analysts in 13
offices across five continents have compiled
and analysed data on the world’s Ultra High
Net Worth (UHNW) population, identifying
key themes and macro trends, and building
a profile of a typical superyacht owner.
Luxury is an elusive concept to pin down.
Tastes and desires differ around the world
– and even beyond the geographical, what
constitutes luxury (and its enjoyment) is
immensely personal. The answer lies in the
theme underscoring all our findings: that
luxury is shifting from the accumulation of
objects to the acquisition of experiences.
As individuals seek to maximise the return
on the investment of time and resources they
commit, yachting continues to stand head
and shoulders above other activities through
its ability to encompass a spectrum of
experiences that no other luxury vehicle can.
Surveying the state of wealth, we find that
the UHNW individuals are a small proportion
of the world’s population. But, even within
these elite ranks, only a select few can afford
superyachts – a fact which further establishes
yachting as the pinnacle of experiential luxury.
As far back as you look, Camper &Nicholsons
has been the hallmark of quality, luxury and
prestige. Our craftsmanship and innovation
have secured our place in yachting history, while
our unblemished reputation and dedication to
excellencemeans theworld’smost discerning
