Yare Goes Digital 2020

YARE (Yachting Aftersales and Refit Experience) is a popular event on the Italian superyacht calendar.  This year as a result of Covid-19 travel restrictions, the Italian organisers decided it was time to go virtual, and the YARE GOES DIGITAL webinar series was created. APSA was one of the supporting partners andgave APSA members and Captains the opportunity to participate and connect with the global superyacht community.

The diverse and dynamic two-day programme was organized by NAVIGO ( a network for the development and the innovation of the nautical sector) and was supported by the Italian Tuscan District for Yachting and Marinas and sponsored by SYBAss, the international association of superyacht builders.

Martin Redmayne from The Superyacht Group kicked off the programme with some unique insights into the current state of the world’s superyacht market and this was followed by a panel discussion lead by Moderator David Seal that focused on the topic of “Managing Owners Expectations". Asia Pacific Superyacht Association Vice-Chairman Christophe Ceard was one of the panel experts that included Vincenzo Poerio, Federico Rossi, Florence Xing and Captain Richard Skinner. Other workshops during the series focused on industry hot topics such as; planning refit projects, innovations on painting and coating, cyber security, green agenda on technologies to reduce environmental impact, and legal administration and taxation. Shipyard tours were broadcast, as were the RINA Captains Awards and the ever-popular Captain’s Passerelle Pitches.
