YARE 2020: BUSINESS, INDUSTRY INSIGHTS, AND THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL DATE OF THE SUPERYACHT FORUM “LIVE” On-site activities and a rich offer of live streaming and business matching

YARE 10th edition on November 26 and 27

Five workshops on refit planning and management, painting and coating, cyber security, green agenda, and taxation.

Along with industry insights, workshops and on-site business networking, a combined digital offer will feature live streaming, podcasts and online meetings.  Yare 2020 will host the first international date of The Superyacht Forum LIVE, the new format of The Superyacht Group, international media partner of the event.

Like all players in the industry, both YARE and TSG evolve and adapt to the market needs and trends which have been modified in terms of logistics and operations – due to the global health emergency – but remain unchanged as regards to the need of searching for business networking among the industry stakeholders.

And that is the core of YARE, Yachting Aftersales and Refit Experience, a one of a kind rendez-vous among superyacht Captains and international leading companies scheduled this year for Thursday 26th  and Friday 27th of November in Viareggio, with a shift in the dates to allow the matching with The Superyacht Forum Live.


The program of the 10th edition will include the Passarelle Pitch in which the registered companies will compete with their innovative projects, and the RINA Captains Awards, a new feature of the upcoming edition.

The format will be lighter and more suited to the current situation yet offering the usual insights into the yachting industry which has been constantly growing in the past years and which has shown incredible resilience in spite of the pandemic.

The meeting agenda between captains and companies has been adjusted for this particular edition: the B2C  Meet the Captain sessions organized through the YARE App allowing for customized matching – will be scheduled as online meetings to take place in the following week through the dedicated platform and with the support of the YARE team.

In any case, the on-site activities will include Live Networking Sessions for all participants to interact and start or consolidate business relations.

The Superyacht Forum LIVE organized by The Superyacht Group and scheduled on the first day will feature a dynamic program and workshops that will be broadcasted and available on streaming and on-demand for those unable to attend. The Forum and the workshops will focus on five main issues: cyber security, green agenda on technologies to reduce environmental impact, innovations on painting and coating, legal administration and taxation, planning refit projects.

Guests include industry leaders and experts, companies and shipyards representatives as well as yacht captains, all offering a unique insight into the current state of the world Superyacht market. Viareggio, one of the most important nautical hubs in the world, will host the forum as the first event on a tour that will touch other important locations such as Amsterdam, Barcelona, ​​Hamburg, London and Munich.

As usual, superyacht Captains are invited to attend the event both in person and online as stakeholders of the main segment of the world yacht fleet in terms of production and refit that is the yacht range between 30 and 60 mt.

YARE is a not-to-be missed appointment thanks to the strategic presence of captains and international shipyards leaders in yacht refit and new building, and thanks to the top quality of the participating companies.

NAVIGO has modified the format to meet the expectations of all players and allow both companies and captains to participate in the activities during the 2 days of the event, even to those unable to travel due to the existing restrictions. On the event premises, the anti Covid provisions will be carefully complied to ensure the safety of all participants.

YARE is organized by NAVIGO with the support of the Tuscan District for Yachting and Marinas and is sponsored by SYBAss, the International association of superyacht builders.
