Steven Howard of TravelNewsAsia.com sat down with Maarten at the Ocean Marina Yacht Club on 1 May to ask him more about the S\V14 boats.

In this interview we discuss the technology behind the boats, how many varieties there are and how they differ.

Maarten tells us how the S\V14 started, why his company is involved and how the S\V14 has been received around the world and in which markets in particular.

We also discuss new technology and whether 3D printing and new materials could change the design and build of the S\V14 moving forward. All that and much, much more in the interview.
