Veteran magazine journalist Kenny Wooton joined Yachts International in 2013 as editor-in-chief. Wooton’s career began in newspapers and has spanned more than 30 years. His vocation and his lifelong passion for boats and boating converged in 1987 at Soundings and Soundings Trade Only where he was a staff writer and copy editor. From there he moved to Boating as associate technical editor and then to Yachting where he spent 11 years as senior editor, executive editor and editor-in-chief. Since leaving that title in 2003, he served as executive editor of ShowBoats International and as U.S. Editor of The Superyacht Report. Prior to his current position, he worked as a freelance writer and editor specializing in superyachts and luxury lifestyle topics. He splits his time between his home in Louisville, Kentucky, and the Yachts International office in Fort Lauderdale.
