Gemma Fottles

British writer living in Amsterdam. Former Editor of the SuperYacht Times daily news website and bi-monthly newspaper, and now enjoying a freelance adventure. Impassioned by beautiful storytelling, accurate reporting and everything to do with the world of yachts and travel. 


Travel always has and always will be my absolute passion. Starting my Cosmopolitan Blog Awards nominated travel blog, Fottles Travels whilst at university and contributing to several travel publications over the years has fed this passion. Although my position as Editor of the SuperYacht times took me from backpacking to the uber-lux side of wanderlust - I embrace all the world has to offer, from backpacking in Zambia to sipping cocktails on a superyacht in St Lucia


Working as Editor of the international publication SuperYacht Times has left me with a specialised, in-depth knowledge of all things superyacht. From yachting lifestyle and luxury travel to in-build construction reports and extensive interviews with the best designers, shipyards and brokers - I've covered it all. This niche knowledge leaves me uniquely equipped to serve the editorial, content creation and copywriting needs of the superyacht business. 


Writing great articles and blog posts has made up around 65% of my writing career. As Editor at SuperYacht Company, my skills with words were often put to other uses. This included copywriting for some of the industry's most important institutions, editing an annual market intelligence report, and executing a 3-day seminar programme in London's renowned Saatchi Gallery. Prior, I also contributed to the establishment of the digital magazines Go Social Film Magazine, Pole Dance Fitness Magazine, and Gypsy Jazz Guitar Secrets. Some of my current clients include copywriting sharp marketing material for some of the world's most esteemed shipyards, ensuring a consistent tone of voice and excellent copy. 

Official Press Kit Monaco Yacht Show 2016

Created for the most important and influential annual yachting event in the world, the successful completion of the official Press Kit for the Monaco Yacht Show 2016 was an incredibly challenging but satisfying project. Starting from scratch, I created the concept and outline whilst corresponding with the MYS Marketing Director, ultimately writing the content and directing the design process to deliver a beautiful, informative press kit distributed to 1,000s of industry professionals around the world.
