Boat International Media is pleased to announce another exciting addition to its event calendar for 2008; The Boat International Media Superyacht Design Symposium. This symposium is titled Designing the Impossible and will be the first of a series of high level, owner driven, design focused superyacht events.
The first of the symposiums will be held in New York City, at the Harold Pratt House, on the 27th and 28th October 2008.
This will be an essential event for superyacht owners, designers, naval architects, project managers and captains who have an interest in new build projects.
By sharing detailed information of their own personal experiences of new build projects, the speakers will assist those involved in new build projects to save time, money, and to reduce the risks associated with high cost or high technology custom build projects.
The programme for this event has been put together by the conference chairman, Roger Lean-Vercoe, editor of The Superyachts Annual and chairman of the World Superyacht Awards.
A series of presentations and discussion groups will cover the following subjects:
So far the confirmed speakers presenting will include high profile successful yachtsmen and serial superyacht owners:
