Superyacht Design Festival

The Superyacht Design Festival, scheduled to be held in July, will now take place from 1 - 3 December in Milan, Italy. With continued uncertainty around travel across Europe, BOAT International have made the difficult decision to postpone the event to December, when our partners and guests will be better able to enjoy the variety of speakers and social events that we have planned.

The 2021 Young Designer of the Year Award winner will be announced on on Thursday 1st July and winners of the 2021 Design & Innovation Awards will be revealed on Wednesday 7th July 2021 with a series of special online features.

In December 2021, the world’s leading superyacht designers, shipyard CEOs and industry figures, along with yacht owners and guests from the luxury community, will gather for a thought-provoking and entertaining event. The Superyacht Design Festival has evolved to offer a powerful and inspiring platform that celebrates the world of design through innovating discussion and exclusive network opportunities.

Tickets for the December event will be available shortly. In the meantime, to register your interest to attend, please email

So far, the 2021 edition is to be held in collaboration with Event Partners Oceanco, Benetti and Videoworks. Plus, Viraver and HFW as Supporting Partners.
