Now I would say this, but I am really looking forward to spending time with all the delegates, speakers and partners at The ‘new’ Superyacht Forum, and feel confident that the team has created a programme and speaker line up that will inspire, inform and impress the diverse mix of industry players.

With such a large gathering of experts, advisors and influential industry leaders, The Superyacht Forum is one of those events that can bring together the people who can generate ideas for change, conversations that lead to a stronger industry and strategies for a better future. But this can only happen if you all participate and share your candid and honest opinions. Now in such a big forum, that for some can be daunting and for others a chance to take the microphone, it is my mission to encourage everyone to have their say and, before the event starts on the 13th November, to ask everyone who is attending to think about the next 10 years and try to imagine what things may be like in 2027.

So, I would like to invite you all to share with me your ideas and concerns for the next 10 years, highlight the issues that you personally and corporately think will impact the superyacht market, and put forward the topics and items that we need to really drill down on, in order to map out a Superyacht Market 10 Year Blueprint. To offer your input send your thoughts to

Every workshop, keynote or think tank is designed to open our eyes and minds, and to focus on how we can create a better industry for our clients and ourselves. So in order to make sure The Superyacht Forum maintains its position as the most important meeting in the market, spend 10 minutes thinking about the next 10 years, and tell me, “What would you like to Change?”

Thanks in advance for your ideas and input. It will make the Forum even more valuable for everyone who attends.

I look forward to seeing you in Amsterdam next week.
