15th Azimut Benetti Yachtmaster 2015

In February Janet Xanthopoulos from Rosemont Yacht Services will be moderating on the VAT and Flags panel in the professional workshops part of this event.

The Yachtmaster is the much awaited annual gathering organised by Azimut|Benetti group for Captains and Owners' Representatives of Azimut Benetti yachts around the world.

It comprises three days of workshops for super and mega yacht captains at Saturnia from 4 -6 February, 2015.

The popular annual event for Azimut Benetti Superyacht Captains and Industry professionals celebrates 15 years of success and is now the central element of the new “Year-long Yachtmaster” project, which keeps this community in constant communication before and after the event, also through workshops and training sessions on professionally relevant topics.

This year's edition will take place in Tuscany at the Spa Boutique Terme Saturnia. The enchanting Spa Boutique Terme Saturnia, will play host to 150 participants, with intensive workshops and conferences on the many challenges that super-yacht management poses.

Two important additions to the 2015 event will make it even more interesting and stimulating:

The Captains’ Perspective – Several captains will be the protagonists of real-time interviews. Here they will go through 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 – 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 therefore 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.
