The nautical district from Livorno to La Spezia, the largest superyacht production hub in Italy, will be showcased in March with YARE (Yachting Aftersales and Refit Experience) and other synergy events dedicated to services, refits, subcontracting, technology, components and design in the nautical sector. This ‘widespread’ yachting week between Tuscany and Liguria will take place from 11 to 18 March, linked by the common thread of the Italian nautical industry which shows structural growth, exceptional results and a double-digit percentage increase.

Thursday 16 March will host The Superyacht Captains' Forum organised by The Superyacht Group, while the B2B Meet the Captain event, the RINA Captains' Awards and the Passerelle Pitch will also take place during the event.
SEATEC/COMPOTEC, which is dedicated to technology, components and design in the nautical sector, is also scheduled to coincide with the event, being held on 16-17 March in Marina di Carrara. The Yare/Seatec Gala Dinner will also be a highlight.
