Superyacht Build, Repair and Refit Trail
Seawork’s new Superyacht Build, Repair and Refit Trail is being launched as the exhibition is ideally positioned to support the requirements of the complexities of the vessels. These vessels often share the needs of design, propulsion and support, and require a similar skillset from professionals across vessel and port operations, engineering through to commercial diving.
The superyacht build, repair and refit trail will feature representation from naval architects, ship builders and engineers, through to navigation and equipment manufacturers. The sophisticated materials and techniques used to build large vessels demonstrate a clear overlap between commercial marine and the superyacht sector, as do the designers and builders, who cater for similar challenges whilst developing these complex vessels. Seawork’s international audience encompasses vessel and port operators, through to engineers and commercial divers.
Landau UK’s Chief Executive, Ben Metcalfe, comments, ‘We believe exhibiting at Seawork International is one of the most efficient ways for us to hear what commercial marine customers and suppliers might need from us right now. Bringing additional focus to the superyacht sector is ideal for us, as our offerings are used across commercial, leisure and superyacht audiences. It’s PRESS RELEASE also a great platform for us to network with like-minded individuals, showcase our latest products and services and get feedback from purchasers and end users alike.” The global superyacht market is promising a robust increase of 7.26% CAGR* 2017-2022. with motorised yachts and long-range expedition vessels anticipated to see maximum growth.
