Superyacht Design Symposium
Marking the Superyacht Design Symposium's 10th edition, the event took place from the 28th – 30th January in Kitzbühel, Austria. Boat International Media would like to thank its valued event partners Videoworks, Oceanco, Design Centre Chelsea Harbour, Clyde & Co and Sabrina Monte-Carlo and Mountain Lodge partner Dynamiq for their support.
Guests joined 300 of the world’s leading influencers in superyacht design along with esteemed speakers at the most important gathering in the industry.
This year's theme focused 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 2018 Superyacht Design Symposium, experts from outside the superyachting industry as well as those embedded within it discussed the boundaries of superyacht design and construction – and how to break through them.
