Every year the Azimut|Benetti Group organises an exclusive convention for the captains of its superyachts, the A|B Yachtmaster. After last year’s success, the Italian company confirms that the 17th edition will consist of three events on three different continents featuring new workshops and a variety of novelties.
The 17th A|B Yachtmaster will get underway on November 22 and 23, 2016 with the Hong Kong event, reserved for Asian crews, before returning to Europe for the Italian event scheduled on February 1-3, 2017, and then coming to an end in Miami, USA with the event organised on May 3-5, 2017.
The A|B Yachtmaster over the years has become an opportunity for everyone involved to meet, to find out about novelties and to network with like-minded professionals. This year’s events will draw on almost twenty years of experience, offering conferences, workshops and team building activities designed to strengthen the network within the yachting industry.
Attending the A|B Yachtmaster aren’t just captains of Benetti yachts, but also project managers, surveyors and the representatives of owners who have worked with the shipyard during 2016. The invitation is also extended to captains and other industry professionals who have worked with Lusben ̶ the Azimut|Benetti Group shipyard dedicated to refit projects ̶ as well as representatives of larger Azimut yachts. This substantial group of qualified professionals is joined by several selected suppliers.
Alessandro Gallifuoco, Benetti’s Quality and After Sales Manager, commented: “We are enthusiastic about last year’s innovative format, and believe holding the A|B Yachtmaster in three different locations around the world was a true success. In the 2016/2017 season, we will make an extra effort so that each event will be richer and even more interesting and appealing”.
