Discover SuperYacht Gallery through the Art of Yachting – from exploring the wonders of the ocean to learning the science behind these gigantic vessels to delving into the fantasy of the ultimate yachting lifestyle.

The Art of Yachting is focused on creating interactions between audiences, art, the oceans and the superyacht world. We explore our topics through the past, present and future to deliver an exposition that truly inspires. Guided once again by our impassioned approach to beautiful art, photography, film and much more, SuperYacht Gallery is an exposition for everyone – young or old – with a passion for the ocean.


SuperYacht Gallery is the vision of Merijn de Waard, CEO of SuperYacht Company, and Marijn Smit, former Manager Events & Multimedia at world-renowned Dutch shipyard Feadship. Both passionate members of the superyacht industry for a number of years, in Spring 2016 De Waard and Smit realised that in order to push forward and future-proof the industry for the years to come, it was time to take action and conceptualise the change needed to do so.


In the superyacht industry, the norm when it comes to yacht shows and events sees often vast numbers of individual brands showcased in the form of exhibitor stands and, location dependent, with a number of superyachts on display for all visitors. We’ve stepped away from the conventional yacht show, instead presenting an exciting and sophisticated gallery exposition that guides the visitor through the entire superyacht lifestyle spectrum.


Each of the galleries have their own theme, and will take visitors on an exciting journey through the superyacht world and beyond. The ground floor will begin with the beginning, introducing visitors to the world of yachting and explaining how the impressive vessels we see sailing the Seven Seas are born from just a sketch on a blank piece of paper. The second floor explores the superyacht lifestyle, taking visitors around the world and showcasing what unique experiences owning or chartering a superyacht can really offer.


As our visitor is at the heart of every part of the SuperYacht Gallery concept, we have created an exclusive VIP Deck. Located on the top floor of the venue, delicious food and drinks will be served to VIP guests.


Our event Partners consist of some of the world’s best superyacht builders and designers, as well as an exclusive small selection of luxury partners. Our Partners are the driving force behind the stories and content of our exposition, as well as the compelling seminars hosted throughout the duration of the event.

Superyachts, the industry and everything in between simply would not be possible without the support of yacht owner’s. SuperYacht Gallery is no different, and we will be showcasing a number of impressive yachts from our supporting owners from all over the world.


With a focus on educating our guests and answering any and all burning questions current and potential superyacht owners may harbor, throughout the exposition we hosted several workshops and seminars conducted by a selection of revered superyacht builders and designers who will share their stories and experiences.
