Amsterdam RAI announced the details of this year’s Symposium on Yacht Design and Yacht Construction.

Held every other year during the annual Marine Equipment Trade Show, the 2014 symposium is being organized by the HISWA Holland Marine industry for Nov. 17 and 18.

Organizers said the length of the event was extended because of the exceptional content of the presentations, making the symposium a must-attend event for yacht builders, engineers, designers, naval architects and R&D personnel.

The program highlights the latest findings in the specialized field.

Professor Hans Hopman, head of the ship design, production and operations section at Delft University of Technology and chairman of the symposium, explained why the program covers a wide range of disciplines.

“We are focusing on the areas which are keeping today’s yacht designers, builders and scientists busy,” Hopman said in a statement. “Moreover, we extend this emphasis across the motor and sailing superyacht sectors, ensuring that developments in smaller yachts also receive the attention they deserve.”
