April 21, 2022





Experiential Yachting is a new philosophy of yachting, where human potential rises to a higher level through the purposeful use of super yachts as floating establishments for living or long-term stay, as well as places to conduct various ventures, sea-related activities, holistic practices, explorations and learning.



The first international forum to discuss unique yachting experiences and activities, that bring additional value and purpose to the use of a vessel for yacht owners, charterers and crew.

This event is a great opportunity  for Yachting Professionals, Experience Providers, Owners, Owner Representatives and Captains to evaluate yachting from a different angle. 

Together we aim to up-lift Yachting with deep purposes and non-ordinary experiences, making a difference to the world and to people’s lives, as well as connecting Yachting to various sectors, such as Ocean and Human Health, Marine Science, Neuroscience, Philosophy, Metaverse, AI & VR Technology and so on.
