YACHT-A-PORTER is an independent communications company with extensive superyacht industry knowledge and experience. Our skills range from copy writing and yachting journalism to PR and communications. We have fantastic media connections for anyone looking to get a story out there, as well as a wealth of knowledge of luxury, with particular specialism in the superyacht industry.
We have more than 20 years sector experience covering the build and design of superyachts, market trends, superyacht destinations, and everything that comes with the extraordinary lifestyle that superyachts encompass (fashion, cuisine, spas, exploration).
Our portfolio is wide and deep. We aim to write about the latest and most up to date trends in yachting and deliver articles that are relevant to the luxury industry.
As President and Editor-in-Chief of Elite Traveler from 2001 through 2014 I worked with Miriam Cain for coverage of superyachts and for the launch of Elite Traveler Superyachts. Miriam is always a pleasure to work with, bringing great, relevant story ideas, delivering clean copy in advance of deadlines and providing support for the entire team by graciously sharing her knowledge of the high-end yachting market. I would highly recommend Miriam for any editor who needs a highly professional market expert who delivers great copy.
Doug Gollan, Co-Founder, former Editor of Elite Traveler
"Miriam has always been one of my favorite PR's in the yachting industry. She is professional, smart and creative, and she works with me to produce exceptional editorial as well as advertorial content (she knows the difference—something that not all marketing directors can say). Whenever I have a story idea, she is always one of the first marketing directors I call, because I know she will have the contacts and thoughtfulness to help make the idea a reality for the readers. It has been a pleasure working with Miriam for more than a decade now, and I hope to continue doing so for many more years."
Kim Kavin, Writer and Editor for Yachting, Yachts International, CharterWave and Yachtworld
“Miriam is highly professional and has an excellent understanding of the superyacht sector. I have worked with Miriam for 15 years, during which time I have launched two very large superyachts onto the charter market. She played a leading role in securing impressive media results in both lifestyle and yachting publications - in print and online. She is a delight to work with.”
