Boat International Media are delighted to announce that Italian shipyard Amico & Co will sponsor the Superyacht Design Symposium in 2009.

Amico & Co is a world leader in superyacht refit and repair, using the most advanced technologies and structures matched with a high service quality level and professional skills coming from a well established tradition. With industry experience that runs in the Amico family for over 126 years, Amico & Co was founded in 1991 by Alberto Amico, who is both Managing Director and General Manager of the yard in Genova. Every year since has seen an increase in both physical size and capability of the yard, whose specialist knowledge in the large yacht refit and repair sector is second to none.

Perhaps the most exciting development to occur over the past few months and testament to the ultra modern amenities that the yard has to offer, Amico & Co have provided total facilities for America’s Cup challengers “Alinghi” and the Alinghi Team, with a security-guarded, fenced-off and gated compound containing offices with full crew communications and storage space, as well as reserved, enclosed water space. The whole thing has immediate access to the open sea, while being well protected by two breakwaters.

Mr Rocco Finocchiaro, Marketing and Customer Care Manager of Amico & Co, is thrilled to be partnering with Boat International Media as Gold Sponsor of the Superyacht Design Symposium in 2009.

Mr Finnocchiaro commented: “At the Superyacht Design Symposium a genuine passion for yachting is shared through common experiences. Owners are afforded the rare opportunity to share their passion, instinct, love of the ocean and expertise gained from their knowledge of commissioning, building and maintaining their yachts to the highest standards.”

Many superyacht owners and leading industry professionals have already signed up to attend the Superyacht Design Symposium 2009. Confirmed speakers include the owner of MY Sea Force One, the enigmatic Mr Raffaele Costa a.k.a ‘Captain Magic’, Mr Henk Koster, owner of MY Grace, Mr Joe Vittoria, visionary owner of SY Mirabella V and keynote speaker and owner of MY Resolute, Mr David. V. Johnson

An exciting social program includes a private dinner for delegates and speakers on Monday evening at exclusive New York restaurant Rouge Tomate, as well as ample networking opportunity over two days at the fabulous Plaza Hotel in New York City.

There are limited delegate places left to attend this year’s Superyacht Design Symposium – the essential event for superyacht industry professionals in 2009.
