Now in its ninth year, the Superyacht Design Symposium invites the superyacht industry to share and compare concepts and experiences stimulating authoritative and, at times, controversial debate to positively influence future superyacht projects. The biggest names in superyacht design are joined by experts from the wider design community for two days of discussion about yacht design.
With the support of our valuable partners, the 2017 Symposium returns to Kitzbuhel. This year's partners are:
Ski Cup partner: Compositeworks
1. Event partner: Oceanco
Since its inception in 1987, Oceanco has specialised in building sophisticated custom yachts from 80 to 140 metres in length, offering a highly personal service to clients, with state of the art yacht-building facilities in the Netherlands complemented by a design, sales and marketing office in Monaco. All of Oceanco’s yachts built since 2007 have the distinction of appearing in “The World’s Top 100 Yachts” list; the 82 metre Alfa Nero, the 85.5 metre Seven Seas and 91.5 metre Equanimity, to name only a few.
The 85 metre Aquijo is Oceanco’s first delivery in 2016 and the industry’s largest ketch, which will soon be followed by an impressive and innovative 105 metre three masted Dyna Rig. Several superyachts are currently under construction and continuous research and development is wrapped around the constant search for new shapes, materials and technologies. Oceanco is conscious of the environmental impact of building, owning and operating a superyacht.
Oceanco is pleased to support the Young Designer of the Year Award again, in conjunction with Boat International Media. Winning this prestigious award is an important milestone in the career of student and trainee designers. At Oceanco, we follow new design talent with great interest and are pleased to be able to encourage and celebrate their vision.
