On a calendar already saturated with superyacht conferences, boat shows, award ceremonies and symposiums, finding an event that offers something new and valuable is difficult. Rather than being just another superyacht event or an egotistical display of wealth and excess, SuperyachtDESIGN Week was a very welcome change. A true celebration of design, it brought together for the first time top designers, suppliers, showrooms and industry figureheads to discuss the present and look to the future of our industry. Running from 18 to 20 June, the inaugural SuperyachtDESIGN Week was a platform for debate, discussion, reflection and networking for the creative minds and industry influencers behind the oceans’ floating palaces. SYD looks at key points from the sessions and talks to some of the artisans that helped make this week such a success.
