The SuperYacht Design Challenge

18 & 19 May 2022

THE SUPERYACHT DESIGN CHALLENGE IS A WONDERFUL TEAM BUILDING OCCASION WHICH PRESENTS A FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITY TO NETWORK WITH INDUSTRY PEERS AND PROMOTE YOUR BRAND AMONGST A RELEVANT AUDIENCE.

A community of like-minded professionals coming together in an informal setting:  to provide a wonderful team building opportunity; to build a network of contacts with a common interest in the design and operation of SuperYachts; and, to support The SuperYacht Charities, in a very visible and practical way.

An evening dinner and networking opportunity in Royal Southern Yacht Club on Wednesday, 18 May 22 will be followed by a day of exhilarating racing in a matched fleet of up to sixteen Oceanis 37s in the Solent on Thursday, 19 May 22.

An auction of promises will be held to raise the awareness of Yacht Crew Help, and funds for the the many benefactors of the SuperYacht Charities.


THE CHARITY

Active since 2012, the SuperYacht Charities (SYC) aims to bring together a full cross-section of the SuperYacht Industry to raise awareness and fund for charitable causes.  The SYC are pleased to support the fundraising activities of other organisations across the SuperYacht Industry.
