MAN hits the water!

FOCUS readers associate MAN with vans, trucks and buses. However, the company is now also focusing on the Asian luxury yacht market. Specifically, it aims to sell engines to this emerging future market.

Last year, the German engine manufacturer started delivering diesel engines to the Taiwan shipyards of Ocean Alexander and Horizon Yachts. Ocean Alexander’s 90 Motoryacht and 100 Megayacht are now being powered exclusively by MAN engines.

My friends call me a glomad (a global nomad lest you don’t get it). That’s a particularly apt word, because I am always trawling all corners of the globe, looking for stories. As a result, I have slept in some seriously strange places – on a bed of ice in the Arctic circle, on the floor in a traditional Japanese hotel, on the sand dunes in the Wadi Rum Desert in Jordan … and even on the floor of a Thai cargo ship. Mostly however I tend to sleep on aircraft (if I had a dog, he would bark at me when I eventually come home). I am passionate about trucks, cars, travel, food, wine, people and hugs – so I write about all these things. Except the hugs.
