Once a year, some of the world’s most influential business leaders in the mega yacht industry arrive in Newport, Rhode Island for the American Superyacht Forum. Now in its eighth year, the forum serves as one of the most important events for the American yachting industry.
This Sunday, May 23rd, the American Superyacht Forum will kick off with a team-building competitive regatta of a private fleet of classic racing yachts in Narragansett Bay. This American Superyacht Regatta is a memorable event in itself.
The following two days will feature an interactive conference program of speakers. They will address the core issues that affect the future growth of the large yacht industry. On Wednesday, May 26th, the last day of the forum, attendees will get a presentation and tour of the largest and latest yacht to be built on US soil, the MY Cakewalk.
Headline speakers at the American Superyacht Forum include investor and entrepreneur Wayne Huizenga, who will discuss his experiences entering the superyacht industry and how we can learn from his investments. Michael Moore of Moore & Company, who has been practicing maritime law for over 30 years, will also be sharing his passion for the yachting industry.
