The American Superyacht Forum is scheduled for May 11-14 in Seattle with a theme of “Made in America — An Expanding Marketplace.”

The forum
, sponsored by The Yacht Report Group, will bring together more than 250 of the senior executives of the major American shipyards, management companies and design studios. The event will offer insights and information on how the U.S. market is developing. This will include opinion and debate on how quickly the market will return; where the best business opportunities lie and how the yachting industry must evolve to sustain and support owners of today and tomorrow.

Attendees also will have an opportunity to visit the Boeing “Future of Flight” experience, as well as the Delta Shipyard to see the new metal hull construction facilities under the new division name of Delta North. There will also be a American Superyacht Forum Regatta in Puget Sound with J24 racing.
