SuperYacht Gallery held its VIP preview night in Saatchi Gallery last evening ahead of today’s official opening. Hosted in partnership with Clyde & Co, the event welcomed a good number of UHNIs from London and around the world along with SuperYacht Gallery’s exclusive group of partners.
During the opening address, SuperYacht Gallery founder Merijn de Waard and co-founder Marijn Smit welcomed the crowd along with main sponsor, Jamie Edmiston of Edmiston & Co. The gallery was opened by John Leonida of Clyde & Co where after guests could venture across the three floors of Saatchi Gallery to discover the world of yachting.
Visitors were treated to an immersive 180-degree experience in the Breed Media cinema and the remaining seven galleries each gave insight into an exciting topic that forms a part of the yachting business. Another exciting part of the exposition kicked off today which is a comprehensive seminar programme that will run until Saturday, involving some of SuperYacht Gallery’s most influential partners.
