Whilst the world of superyacht design remains a relatively niche sector in the grand scheme of luxury design, there are an abundance of cross overs that can be made from neighbouring industries. The world of private jets and automotive design remain two of the most popular areas that the the superyacht industry looks to for inspiration and guidance when it comes to improving our market. In the words of keynote speaker, Andrew Bailey of McLaren, and a statement echoed by many within the industry, "the world of superyachts and supercars are luxuries that nobody truly needs". But what is it that continues to draw people in? And how can we continue on this trajectory to ensure a fruitful future for the luxury sector?

Mr M A Zaman

Petrol heads will get their first fix on day two, 25 June when Mr Zaman will discuss his experience working with Porsche Design for the new Royal Falcon Fleet, seeing the ultimate marriage between the two industries. This will be followed by Bailey's closing session on the same day regarding the world of supercars and superyachts. With roots in naval architecture, Bailey has a wealth of experience and knowledge in the world of luxury design on both land and sea. Closing this year's event on 26 June will be Hugo Nightingale, Creative Specialist for Jaguar Advanced Design. Taking an outsider's perspective, Nightingale will discuss shared DNA and the Jaguar experience, while tracking key themes across the luxury market.
