Logo-YM-2015Superyacht Business and sister title IBI are pleased to announce that we will be reporting from the 15th Azimut | Benetti Yachtmaster event in the capacity of official media partner.

The annual event, now celebrating its 15th year, involves three days of workshops and socialising for Azimut Benetti superyachts captains, and runs from 4th to 6th February 2015.

The Azimut | Benetti Group has always invested heavily in the captains and project managers of its yachts and a new “Year-long Yachtmaster”  project will keep the community in constant communication before and after the event, also through workshops and training sessions on professionally relevant topics. The Group has always been attentive to the needs and skills of those who participate towards the success of its vessels during all phases of the project life-cycle (from negotiation to build and delivery, but primarily during the owner’s enjoyment) and their contribution to maintaining the brand’s worldwide reputation for excellence.

Spa Boutique Terme Saturnia

This year’s Yachtmaster event will take place in Tuscany at the Spa Boutique Terme Saturnia. The hotel, surrounded by the Tuscan hills, will play host to 150 participants, with intensive workshops and conferences on the many challenges that superyacht management poses.

For 2015 two important additions will make it even more interesting and stimulating: The Captains’  Perspective – Several captains will be interviewed live offering advice and insight based upon their experiences during all project phases: negotiations, construction, cruising, etc. They will interact with the audience and all participants can exchange their experiences.

Professional Workshops will also be held. Participants will be divided into six sections with about 15 members  each. Every class will further their knowledge of a captain’s duties with topics chosen by the participants before  the event by means of polls taken on event-specific social network pages and other communication channels.  The participants themselves will choose the topics of their workshops. Each section will be lead by a professional moderator.

As always, during the 2015 Azimut/Benetti Yachtmaster the workshops will be accompanied by social events and team building activities.
