TECNOSEAL AT YARE 2018
Today, 18th April 2018, begins the eighth edition of YARE (Yachting Aftersales & Refit Experience), the original and exclusive international event organized and promoted by NAVIGO, a service center for innovation and development of boating, with the support of the District of Tuscany Nautical and Ports, of Ucina Confindustria Nautica and of the Chamber of Commerce of Lucca as well as with the patronage of SYBAss, Nautica Italiana, Yacht Section Federagenti Italy, associations of national and international commanders and local institutions. In fact, the event returns to take place in Viareggio and for the first time will be in the Darsena, the beating heart of one of the best known nautical districts in the world.
Four days of intense activity starting from today's, entirely dedicated to the 110 guest commanders, which opens with a Yachting District Tour. A guided tour of selected shipyards that will start from Perini Navi of Viareggio and then move to Pisa to the Seven Stars Marina & Shipyard, continue in La Spezia in the Baglietto and Fincantieri shipyards and end in Marina di Carrara in the NCA Refit. In the evening a Welcome Party will be held at the Marea restaurant in Marina di Pietrasanta, sponsored by Lurssen.
The event will, however, come to life on April 19 with The Superyacht Captains' Forum, organized by the media partner The Superyacht Group and dedicated to the exploration of the prospects of the superyacht market (production) and the future dynamics and prospects of the refit sector from an international point of view. The approximately 500 participants between companies and commanders will be hosted in the Auditorium set up in the Lusben shipyard, a leading European company on refit & repair projects for luxury yachts. The group will then move to the famous Palazzo Pfanner in Lucca for the usual Networking Gala Dinner.
The key event, which will also take place in Lusben on April 20th, is still the series of face-to-face meetings between commanders and companies in the tried and tested Meet The Captain format that allows site and refit and after-sales companies to act on the market based on feedback from those who work with yachts and represent the owners. At the same time in the two days will be organized a series of limited participation workshops on specific topics of interest for the refit market.
The closing day will be dedicated to leisure and sport under the Yare Active banner. We will start the morning with a Bike Tour led by world champion Francesco Chicchi, then continue with a free shooting session at the shooting range and finally close it all with a four-team soccer tournament.
Tecnoseal will obviously be present especially in the two central days to carry on the commitment to share with anyone who wishes it its thirty years of experience and knowledge in the field of cathodic protection and sacrificial anodes.
