On Tuesday 21 September 2021 at the Yacht Club de Monaco, the speakers of the Monaco Yacht Summit will cover the key information that new charter clients and current owners need to know before entering the yachting world the next day at the Monaco Yacht Show.
This year's Monaco Yacht Summit will be moderated by Martin Hager, editor-in-chief of leading German superyacht magazine Boote Exclusiv, and a former naval architect with more than 18 years of experience in the industry.
The topics include:

- Rose Damen, Managing Director, Damen/Amels (shipyard)
- Aino-Leena Grapin, CEO, Winch Design (yacht design)
Charter; How to choose your superyacht and your broker? How to optimise a yacht for charter, what are the essential ingredients to provide/look for? Location, booking process, what to watch out for? The speakers will address the essential ingredients that combine to deliver a successful charter.
