Alexseal’s own Tripp Nelson recently participated in an interview with William Mathieson from The Superyacht Group, which lead to the publishing of an article on SuperyachtNews.com. The full article follows:
As a company that has steadily increased its market share in this time, Alexseal’s sales and marketing director, Tripp Nelson is well placed to evaluate the fortunes of the last decade, and he spoke exclusively to SuperyachtNews.com on this topic, as well as the challenges lying ahead for his sector, and the industry as a whole.This year signals the 10th anniversary of the launch of Alexseal, the superyacht coatings manufacturer whose life has coincided with the most tumultuous and rapidly evolving period in the history of the superyacht industry.
“In 2004 the global superyacht market was thriving and we saw a lot of new builds and refits”, Nelson begins. “As we were going through this period, towards 2008, business was good across all sectors. But then of course, the global recession took place, and I believe the US market felt it around a year and a half earlier than the European market.”
