Despite the saturation of yachting events across Europe, the latest addition to the calendar, Superyacht Gallery, was certainly not one to miss. Having launched for the first time last week at The Saatchi Gallery in London, the 3 day show allowed people to explore the world of superyachts through art, film, photography and installations, instead of ducking in and out of the usual, characterless booths found at most events.
Winch Design was one of an exclusive group of designers exhibiting there, showcasing some in-gallery sketching from a handful of our yacht designers, which was live streamed onto a huge screen behind them. During the sketchers' breaks, a short film on the process of yacht design at Winch was played on the screen, along with a rolling slideshow of our most spectacular images, based on the company's Instagram page. A number of Winch Design yacht models were also on display over the course of the event, receiving lots of welcome attention.
In addition to the exhibitions, there were numerous fascinating seminars on various topics in the superyacht industry, including a one from Andrew himself about the history and future of Winch Design. It was a brilliant event, and a great opportunity to showcase Winch Design's creativity and design excellence in some truly unique ways.
