Damen Yachting’s support comes after its SeaXplorer design team appeared as key speakers at last year’s inaugural event.

Amels and Damen Yachting managing director Rose Damen said: “We’ve all seen how rapidly the world is changing. Luxury expedition yachting offers a new way to see the world in complete autonomy and safety, themes that we believe will shape the future of yachting.

“The BOAT Live: Explorer Yachts Summit is an ideal format for the explorer leaders to get together and sharpen minds. So we’re proud to support the team at BOAT International with this important event. We’re also grateful to Cantiere delle Marche and Triton Submarines as well as Sabrina Monte-Carlo for their support.”

A number of speakers have been confirmed to appear at the event, which is the only international summit dedicated solely to the expanding explorer yachting sector.
