Superyacht UK Technical Seminar returns for 2023
The annual Superyacht UK Technical Seminar returns to London on 18 April 2023, alongside British Marine’s London Luxury Afloat boat show.
The SYUK Technical seminar, now in its 12th year, welcomes industry professionals from within the superyacht world to come together to discuss sector-specific topics.
With a focus on sustainability within the sector and the future of the superyacht industry, the upcoming seminar offers an agenda (https://www.superyachtuk.com/2023/03/07/superyacht-uk-technical-seminar-agenda-announced/) of 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.
Organisers say there will be updates on important industry matters such as regulatory changes, including a REG code update, discussions on superyacht sustainability challenges, covering a hydrogen-hybrid case study, the importance of Life Cycle Analysis (LCAs) 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 final 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. 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”, saysAlex Meredith Hardy, chief naval architect, Lateral Engineering.
“It’s great news that this year’s SYUK technical seminar is being held in the heart of London at the same time as London Luxury Afloat in St Katharine Docks.
