The 2018 Benetti Yachtmaster event in February at Castelfalfi, Italy, had record attendance of more than 200, according to event organizers.
The annual event is organized by the private shipyard for megayacht captains to apprise them and other industry professionals of Benetti developments. It also features panel discussions of general yachting interest and networking opportunities.
Seminar and conference topics in this 18th year of the event included charter guidelines in the Med and social security contributions for crew in France. The programs were well attended by crew members, project managers, surveyors and owner’s representatives, and a workshop presented by international cyber security expert Cal Leeming was popular, according to Benetti.
“Events like Yachtmaster help to build closer and more productive ties between shipyard, owner and crew, as well as to gain a better understanding of owners’ needs.” said SeaNet CEO Matty Zadnikar, who owns a Benetti Delfino 93-footer.
