As strategic partner for this year’s The Superyacht Forum and METSTRADE, we are eager to share our additions to these events. From the launch of YETI 1.0 and the Superyacht Sustainability Route to panel discussions and keynote presentations, we have been preparing a number of initiatives to showcase throughout the week. 

The Superyacht Forum will feature a presentation by chairman Henk de Vries III and board member Peter Lürssen on Monday 14 November from 11:30-13:00, where they will discuss the future of yachting and sustainable developments in the industry. This will be followed by a breakout session at 14:30 pre-launching version 1.0 of the Yacht Environmental Transparency Index (YETI) to delegates of the forum. 

Visit our stand at the Superyacht Sustainability Route

During METSTRADE, we are proud to be introducing the first edition of the Superyacht Sustainability Route, an initiative rewarding the sustainable solutions that have been proven as such through a third-party verification process. The starting point of the route will feature the Water Revolution Foundation stand at C01 in the hallway next to the Superyacht Pavilion, which will describe said process and point visitors toward the verified solutions.

Discussing the future of superyacht design & LCA-based verification

An expert panel has been organised in collaboration with KNTVS to discuss sustainable yacht design on Wednesday 16 November at 14:00 in room D202 situated in the Elicium building. The following day at 12:30, we will be giving a presentation concerning the Life Cycle Assessment and how it can be applied to the yachting sector, in addition to unveiling a new course in our education programme covering LCA-based decision making. This event will take place in the central METSTRADE Theatre. 

YETI 1.0 launch 

On the final day of METSTRADE at 13:30, we are thrilled to officially present and launch YETI 1.0. Those who attend will be given the opportunity to witness the release of this highly-anticipated tool and hear a panel of YETI participants review this unique collective journey with an audience Q&A session. Seats are limited so RSVP here to attend the event. 

We look forward to seeing you at The Superyacht Forum and/or METSTRADE later this month. Should you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
