Fraser CEO on the panel at the Superyacht Design Symposium 2018

The annual Superyacht Design Symposium 2018 will take place from 29th January, in Kitzbuhel, Austria. Fraser CEO, Raphael Sauleau, is attending the event as a speaker.
Over the course of the two-day event, delegates will be able to network and attend various discussions featuring speakers and panelists from all over the superyacht industry. The theme this year is 'The New Extremes' which will explore trends the industry is seeing and how they are affecting yacht design and the industry as a whole. The programme includes a general look at the concept of 'Extreme Markets'  and a discussion on 'Extreme Builds' as well as design challenges and breakout sessions.

Raphael Sauleau, CEO of Fraser, will take part in a panel discussion on the topic of 'New Frontiers' which will specifically focus on new trends in travel and experiences for UHNWIs. With an increasing demand for extreme and bespoke experiences, panelists will discuss how this may influence yacht design and what the impact could be for the industry.

Luxury yacht charter is subject to trends and evolution just as any other industry or service is. The panel will debate what these trends currently are, how the media influences them and what features on yachts are most desirable to the charter market among other questions.

With over fifteen years in the shipping industry and subsequently managing private real estate and assets for a private family office, including superyacht SALUZI, Raphael is well placed to discuss the ever changing requirements of the UHNW demographic within the context of the yachting industry.  As the leading yacht brokerage company, Fraser is proud to share expertise with industry peers to explore topics that are relevant to the market and how we adapt in the face of new demands and trends.
