Mike McCleery of Marine Money International magazine tells me that programme details of this year's third annual Superyacht Finance Forum have now been finalised.
To be held on Tuesday September 21st at the Auditorium Rainier III in Monaco, it promises to be a stimulating debate between leading lights of the yacht finance community and yachting industry veterans. Included in the proceedings is a builders' forum featuring Bas Nederpelt of Feadship De Vries, Fabio Ermetto of Heesen Yachts and Stefan de Vivo of Benetti. Plenty of opportunities for networking during a leisurely lunch followed by the chance to take a brief nap as I give a talk on the sale, purchase and new order scorecard over the past 12 months. Brokers also have a chance to have their say in a Broker Summit including Dominic Millman of Burgess, Jeff Partin of Fraser Yachts and Toby Walker of Camper & Nicholsons International.
