On the 1st April, we travelled to the St Mary’s Stadium in Southampton to attend the Superyacht Charities Ball as Official Media Partners to the event. The night was a huge success, with a record amount of money raised in support of charities within the Superyacht industry. This year’s chosen charities were Sail2Help, Oceans of Hope, Team Endeavour and The Superyacht Charities Cash4Causes fund.
Watch our coverage of the event below to see our exclusive interviews with some of the event sponsors including, MIMO Connect, LA Marine and Peninsula, as well as the charities Oceans of Hope and Team Endeavour.
