The Founder and President of Sunreef Yachts

Sunreef Yachts is a pioneering shipyard specializing in the design and construction of fully-customized luxury catamarans and multihull superyachts. 

 

Questing for a more environmentally responsible cruising experience, Sunreef Yachts marked a new chapter in yachting history. The shipyard developed a new range of luxury Eco catamarans for a more sustainable, environmentally responsible and healthy yachting experience.

Holistic yachting can never achieve 100% holism only through the longevity experiences on board. To achieve fully holistic yacht status, a yacht must employ environmentally friendly technology.  At the Experiential Yachting Forum, Francis Lapp will share his vision of how Sunreef Yachts Eco catamarans can boast a 360° approach to sustainable yachting.

with a revolutionary composite-integrated solar power system, electric propulsion, hydro-generation, energy-efficient air-conditioning and ethically-sourced finishing materials.

As part of its mission to promote Monaco and facing a growing international competition,

the MONACO CAPITAL OF YACHTING initiative has been launched in 2012, under the leadership of the Yacht Club of Monaco. Raising awareness among local players and followed by concrete actions, this approach has come to be obvious for the attractiveness of the Principality and has shown that the yachting industry is not only a vital economic force for Monaco but is also an appealing tourism factor. This is why ten years later, confronting more than ever all environmental threats, this initiative has taken a new turn and has become MONACO CAPITAL OF ADVANCED YACHTING.

At the Experiential Yachting Forum, Claudia will join Maria Alekseenko Magan (founder of Experiential Yachting), Patrick Cosson  (MD, PhD Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience, Neurochemistry, Electro and Neurophysiology of the Nervous System) and Julian Amengual  (Mathematician, PhD in neuroscience and Data Scientist) to unveil

the results of a neuroscience experiment comparing the effects on brainwaves of meditation at sea (on a jet ski) with conventional meditation on land. The experiment was conducted in Monaco with the support of MCAY last September to explore the alternative use of small watercraft for holistic purposes and to analyze  

how the rolling of sea waves affects brain waves.

At the first Experiential Yachting Forum last year, Pierre wowed us all with his incredible immersive presentation. This year he will come to our forum in Dubai to immerse us even deeper into the holistic world of Orcas.
