A unique format that focuses on direct meetings among professionals of the refit industry


The B2C meetings among companies, shipyards, captains and yacht managers are organized through a digital platform providing customized agendas, the YARE App. “B2C Meet The Captain” is the Focus of the event, an intense session of business divided in 2 half-days.

During the Superyacht Captains’ Forum, YARE provides interesting insights concerning the market trends and addressing the hottest topics of the industry.

Social happenings such as the Gala Dinner and the Captains’ Dinner are the perfect occasion to do extra networking.

The current Covid19 emergency and travel limitations throughout Europe have inspired us in planning a new format based on SECURITY, INNOVATION, DIGITALIZATION which will certainly favor the events goal with the aim of generating and boosting business relationships.
All guests are invited to attend the 2020 edition online through our platform.


The district tour, reserved to the captains and scheduled on the day of their arrival, presents the excellence of the nautical district. Captains are guided through the visit to the premises of local companies and shipyards. The first approach to Yare is a discovery of what the district has to offer.

Starting from YARE 2020 edition the possibility has been implemented, both for shipyards and for companies, to participate in the District tour, which expands its range of action and becomes an International Tour. Companies will show their facilities and present their products to Captains and to a wider audience remotely, through a live streaming that will be transmitted by the digital channels of YARE.

meet and mingle

During YARE, stimulating convivial happenings are organized in fascinating locations of the Versilia area. The Gala Dinner and the Captains Dinner provide further opportunities to do some extra networking in an informal environment and they are the ideal moment to meet and mingle with all participants.

The 2020 edition postpones the activities in presence – and therefore also the convivial ones, but continues to guarantee its guests a stimulating network experience through its platform.
