Why attend the Global Superyacht Forum: Designers
Wednesday sees the BV80 Case Study, for an in-depth examination with figures from the project: Patrick Coote and Peer Ostendorff of Blohm+Voss, Peder Eidsgaard and Ben Harrison of Eidsgaard Design and Andrew Thomas of Inaria. The session will explore the re-emergence of Blohm + Voss and the development of the BV80 yacht in tandem with Eidsgaard Design and Inaria. This keynote aims to uncover their strategic approach and the research process of a semi-custom yacht, as well as the insights generated and lessons learnt along the way.
These workshops encourage delegates to discuss controversial matters in an intimate environment, where judgement and rivalries are set aside to improve the superyacht industry as a whole.
- Monday’s ‘Materials’ focus group poses the controversial question: “Bleeding edge technologies and materials or just bleeding owners dry?”
- Designers attending the ‘Scrap Market’ workshop can work towards a solution for an important issue within the current market: "How can we get rid of the depreciating ageing fleet – refreshing or retiring?"
- Tuesday’s 'Paint' workshop hopes to answer “The Great Debate: What's Wrong with Paint?” where attendees discuss the time-consuming and complex paint process for new builds and re-fits.
- The must-attend session for all Designers is simply entitled ‘Design’ and broaches the hotly debated topic: “Can we integrate the whole process - from ideas to engineering to operation?
