Supporting the next generation of superyacht designers

There are still sponsorship opportunities available for the Superyacht UK Young Designer Competition 2024, which will be returning to Southampton International Boat Show in September.

Shortlisted from applications received from several premium universities in the UK and with a career igniting prize to be won, our 12 budding young designers will once again compete under the watchful eye of our renowned industry judges, in front of 100,000+ show visitors.

The one-and-a-half-day competition is only made possible through the support of our sponsors. This is your opportunity to promote your company at the UK’s national boat show, amongst your peers and for the good of our industry.
