Lighter, faster, more efficient; find out from experts how to finetune/supercharge your sailing yacht. The panel will discuss some of the latest tech that can improve performance and comfort on your sailing yacht.

Is Sailing too complicated? Whether requiring a large crew or sophisticated technology, the complexities of sailing may discourage newcomers and drive owners out of the market. Our panel of experts moderated by Shirley Robinson will address this weighty topic and review the options.

How to sell sailing? Our marketing expert will take an unbiased look at sailing’s image and offer tips on how to polish it and expand the appeal to a wider audience.

Has the time come for catamarans? Leading designers and builders who have banked on catamarans for some time, will discuss the advantages and advances made in this market segment.

What does the future of sailing look like? GenZ designers will pitch their concepts for the perfect Gen Z sailor.

Owners of sailing yachts will attend to discuss their love for sailing and their biggest adventures. Plus, the latest and greatest projects will be discussed.

After a popular Life Under Sail virtual session in 2020, BOAT International look forward to hosting leaders in the sailing yacht sector together in person for networking that will follow the day's series of talks.


This year's Life Under Sail conference is taking place as part of the BOAT International Festival of Yachting. The Life Under Sail conference will form day one of the programme and will be followed by the Explorer Yachts Summit on November 11th.
