Topics for the 2018 Superyacht Design Symposium

Topics for the 2018 Superyacht Design Symposium

The New Extremes

This year's Superyacht Design Symposium theme focuses on ‘The New Extremes’. Specifically, what are they? And how are impediments like cost and regulation hampering progress? Are designers pushing boundaries, or taking the middle road to secure an order – and how much should designers be leading owners in pushing the limit of what’s possible? At the Superyacht Design Symposium 2018, experts from outside the superyachting industry as well as those embedded within it will discuss the boundaries of superyacht design and construction – and how to break through them. Topics include:

Extreme Builds

A case study of two extreme builds; one in production and one on the ocean. Get unique insights into the design, build and engineering of these two extraordinary projects.

Extreme Frontiers

What do UHNWIs demand during their limited downtime? Here we discuss the new trends in travel and look at the new range of extreme travel experiences available, and how these could affect yacht design.

Extreme Markets

Hear success stories from people who have had prospered in non-traditional luxury markets. A closer look into what it takes to target new markets – and where the next phase of superyacht industry growth will occur.

Extreme Owners

A discussion with the next generation of superyacht owners – the ‘millenial’ market. What do they want from their yachts? How do they use them?

Extreme Materials/Interiors

Hear about the new materials being developed as well as case studies of extreme interior requests and how they became a reality.

IN ADDITION to the above we will have keynote speakers, on-stage interviews and presentations as well as break out seminars and a group design challenge.
