Superyacht UK (SYUK) is pleased to confirm that the annual Superyacht UK Technical Seminar, this year sponsored by the UK’s leading superyacht refit, restoration and bespoke build shipyard Pendennis is set to return to London on 18 April alongside British Marine’s London Luxury Afloat boat show.
The SYUK Technical seminar is now in its 12th year and is a well-established event in the superyacht calendar, welcoming industry professionals from within the superyacht world to come together to discuss sector specific topics. As well as being a must attend event for those working within the superyacht industry, the agenda is shaped to also provide valuable insight for insurers and lawyers who service the sector.
With a strong focus on sustainability within the sector and the future of the Superyacht Industry the seminar promises a packed agenda filled with industry updates and panel discussions, alongside a networking reception sponsored by Laurent Giles Naval Architects and entrance to London Luxury Afloat as part of the ticket price. View the full agenda here.
There will be updates on important industry matters such as regulatory changes including an REG code update, discussions on superyacht sustainability challenges, covering a hydrogen-hybrid case study, the importance of Life Cycle Analysis (LCA’s) to support effective sustainable choices and an alternative fuel panel discussion, culminating in a discussion looking at the drive to sustainability and the hidden risks. Chaired by Francesca Conn from Hill Dickinson, this session will look at how the hidden risks associated with the increased use of lithium-ion (Li) batteries are now causing the superyacht industry to look at the design and operation of vessels.
Industry expert speakers from Mayfair Marine, Cayman Islands Shipping Register, Marine Shift 360 and Hill Dickinson are already confirmed for the event, with more to be announced in the coming weeks.
“Keeping up with regulations is essential to our business and attending the SYUK Technical Seminar has always been a great way to catch up on the latest industry developments,” commented Alex Meredith Hardy, Chief Naval Architect, Lateral Engineering. “We have attended for many years and have always found it to offer a valuable balance of networking, technical insight and learning, all packaged into a convenient single day out the office. We will be there again this year.”
