The U.S. Superyacht Association plans to produce a two-day seminar called the Superyacht Summit this spring.

 

Led by what event chairman Jim Perry called “compelling content”, the event aims to provide a different experience from existing seminars in the superyacht industry. Perry called for USSA members and others to contribute session ideas and said he’s looking for support on the steering committee.

 

It will be held in West Palm Beach on March 18-19, the days immediately prior to the Palm Beach International Boat Show.

 

In related news, the USSA gave its first Chairman’s Award to Triton Publisher David Reed for his vision in helping get the association started seven years ago.
