Benetti captains gather

ADVERTISEMENT

More than 180 yacht industry professionals participated in the 15th annual Azimut Benetti Yachtmaster event in Italy in early February. Hosted for captains on the brand’s yachts larger than 100 feet, the three-day event featured workshops and meetings addressing the challenges of managing megayachts.

One meeting was a discussion from the owner’s team, including captains and owner’s reps, who discussed their involvement with Benetti during all the phases of a project, including negotiations, design and construction, and navigation.

The topics for the workshop were chosen by the participants themselves before the event by polls taken on social media pages, including fiscal regulations in the Mediterranean, port state control inspections, IMO rule updates, the effects of the 2006 Consolidated Maritime Labour Convention.

The event also include a social side, with a gala dinner and team-building activities such as cardboard boat building.
