Webinar: Young NMT dives into to the superyacht industry

Dutch superyacht builders and their suppliers are worldwide frontrunners in the flourishing superyacht industry. Young NMT dives into this fascinating sector, which is an increasingly important part of the Dutch shipbuilding industry. Yachts are getting bigger and bigger and the order books are full for the coming years. That means the future looks bright, but besides opportunities, the big demand may also cause challenges in the production and the supply chain of superyacht builders.

In a one hour webinar on Thursday 10 February, industry experts Tom de Vries (Managing Director at Koninklijke De Vries Scheepsbouw) and Ralph Dazert (Head of Intelligence at SuperYacht Times) will share their insights with you. Tom has over 39 years of experience in the yacht building industry and is responsible for the overall production of Feadship yachts in Aalsmeer, Makkum, Papendrecht, Moordrecht and Leiden. Ralph, as Head of Intelligence at the world’s leading yachting medium SuperYacht Times, knows everything there is to know about the superyacht market.

Young professionals from the Dutch shipbuilding are invited for this webinar, where Tom will tell us about how the market has developed over the years and what that means for the production and supply chain of superyacht builders. Ralph will give an overview of the current market, recent trends and the market perspectives for the future.
