News from Auckland – Sam Sorgiovanni has joined the stellar speaker lineup for The Superyacht Gathering 2019. World-renowned superyacht designer Sam Sorgiovanni is joined by several other new speakers including Captain Mike Gregory, Fleet Captain of 'The Fly Fleet,' which includes 74m Dragonfly, and Tracy and Mike Mahoney, owners of S/Y Tawera.
Sam Sorgiovanni has worked with many of the leading shipyards and on iconic projects including 126m Octopus and 75.5m Anastasia. Recents projects include the world’s biggest tri-hulled yacht, 84m White Rabbit, built by Echo Yachts. Sam will present case studies on White Rabbit’s innovative hull form, and a one-year research project into a zero-emission yacht and the challenges this presented. How can we create near zero emission designs, that perform better and have a lower environmental impact, and what technology developments do we need to invest in to achieve them?
Held on day two of The Superyacht Gathering's three-day lineup, the engaging Symposium day will be broken down into several sessions, around topics including Design, Altruism, the America's Cup, and candid Ownership Insight.
