The Superyacht Captains’ Forum – 20 April 2017
The Superyacht Captains’ Forum took place during the Yachting, Aftersales & Refit Experience (YARE) in Viareggio, Italy. The programme was comprised of an opening keynote presentation and interactive workshops. The opening keynote session was a comprehensive market analysis from Martin H. Redmayne and William Mathieson, both from The Superyacht Group.
The opening session set the tone for the day’s discussions. Using analysis from The Superyacht Intelligence Agency’s Annual Report, the presentation looked at the current Global Order Book, the past decade of new build launches and the industry forecast for the next 10 years.
The six workshops covered three topics in detail: Superyacht Refit & Lifecycle Servicing, Aftersales and Warranty; these complementing workshops were discussed from both the perspective of a shipyard and a captain. The panels were driven by key members of the large yacht market, from within Italy and further afield.
Speakers such as York Ilgner, Blohm + Voss, Andrea Pezzini, Floating Life, Pier Posthuma de Boer, Feadship, Captain Juan Clark-Stukeley, Joe Degabriele, Compositeworks, Tristan Rowe, Pendennis, Ico Vergouwe, Feadship, Captain Luca Triggiani, Captain Michael Schueler, and Alberto Perrone Dazara, Lurssen took the stage to lead the conversation.
Following a day of dynamic sessions, the delegates enjoyed an evening in the nearby picturesque Pietrasanta.
