SUPERYACHT GALLERY

SuperYacht Gallery is an insightful exposition about the world of superyachts designed to incorporate various visual elements including film, photography, superyacht models, infographics, art, and a number of compelling creative concepts. The first event was held at London’s exclusive Saatchi Gallery from 1-3 June 2017.

HOW IT STARTED

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.

LONDON

A select number of VIP visitors has been invited to enjoy special access to SuperYacht Gallery. In addition to two exclusive VIP evenings, VIP guests were able to enjoy the VIP Deck within the Saatchi Gallery. Located on the top floor of the venue, delicious food and drinks were be served throughout the day, giving our guests the opportunity to break away from the crowd and talk to a number of our prestigious Partners in a relaxed and sophisticated environment.

SAATCHI GALLERY

One of the most sought after venues in London, the Saatchi Gallery is perfectly aligned with the philosophy behind SuperYacht Gallery and the exclusivity that goes hand-in-hand with the very best of the superyacht lifestyle. Located in Chelsea in the heart of the city, the venue is on the doorstep of the highly coveted neighbourhoods of Knightsbridge, Mayfair, Westminster and Belgravia.

EXPOSITION

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.

THEMES

Each of the galleries within the Saatchi Gallery 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.

VIP

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

PARTNERS

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.
