What should the Superyacht Industry look like in 2030...

We want to use our One to Ones, our Virtual Focus Groups, The Superyacht Forum Live and the Superyacht Forum Live Tours to challenge our industry and define a new mission that focuses on what makes sense for the future. With 2030 as a key target date, linked to the UN Sustainability Goals, the time has come to focus our attention on energy efficiency, zero-impact, smart manufacturing, short supply chains, future infrastructure, waste reduction, smart thinking and innovation that will make superyachts and our wider industry, the ultimate R&D platforms for maritime sustainability and intelligent ocean thinking, combined with a key objective to make superyachts attractive for a whole new generation of buyers, users and charter clients.

Shipyard Tours: Due to the recent Dutch Government announcements and the changing COVID rules in the Netherlands and possible new protocols, coupled with a regional increase in cases, in agreement with the regional shipyards, we have had to postpone the planned shipyard tours on Wednesday afternoon, we are very sorry for the inconvenience and trust you can understand the current changing situation across Europe.
