Next year’s event to be held from March 18-20

YARE, the international aftersales and refit event dedicated to the superyacht sector, is returning to Viareggio next year from March 18-20 for its 10th edition.

Around 100 superyacht captains will descend on Italy’s yachting capital for three days of business, meetings and in-depth discussions. This year the popular B2C-Meet the Captain event will be split into two half-days and have its own dedicated App, providing a unique opportunity for pre-arranged, face-to-face meetings between captains and refit and aftersales companies.

Innovation, technology, perspectives and market trends will be the topics discussed during the workshops of The Superyacht Captains Forum, which is organised by The Superyacht Group, YARE’s international media partner. The annual meeting explores the state of the market, dynamics and future prospects by analysing and comparing the sector data.

YARE is organised by NAVIGO, a research and innovation service centre for the nautical sector, and endorsed by SYBAss, the international superyacht builders association.The organisers describe it as a “strategic event due to the important presence of captains and top international shipyards operating in the Mediterranean and North European area.”
