Miami

Two days in Miami Beach brought the 16th edition of the annual event, dedicated by Azimut Benetti to the captains, surveyors, owner’s representatives and sponsors of their megayachtfleet, to a successful close.
The first day was centered on partners and sponsors taking part in an enjoyable speed-dating encounter, where they had the possibility to meet and greet the participants before introducing their company and services offered.
Again, the workshops were pertinant and interesting, cornerstones of the Yachtmaster spirit, an important moment where experience and knowledge were exchanged.

Harald van Exem, director of Yacht Services Worldwide at Fraser Yachts illustrated the complex world of maritime insurance, helping discover added value present in insurance packages. This was followed by an important overview and breakdown of reading yacht certificates from Clive McCartney, Senior Manager Yacht Services at Fraser Yachts.
Alessandro Gallifuoco, Benetti Quality and After Sales Manager, took us through the challenges for captains when dealing with crew and personnel management. Ches King, Rina Business Development Manager, ended the day with an interesting panorama covering the coming regulations regarding environmental protection.
Second day guests challenged in an adrenalinic go -kart race.
