The Poole Harbour Superyacht Forum

Poole, Dorset
April 17, 2024


On April 17, 2024, The International SeaKeepers Society attended this inaugural forum for the Poole Harbour Commissioners in partnership with newly launched British Superyacht. There was an impressive turnout of over 100 delegates from the UK superyacht industry. Poole in Dorset is seen as one of the superyacht industry hubs along the south coast of England and is a key contributor to the continued growth of the sector. The inaugural Poole Harbour Superyacht Forum was hosted by Poole Harbour Commissioners who are responsible for the Port of Poole and its harbour. The forum was opened by Chief Executive of Poole Harbour Commissioners, Captain Brian Murphy and the keynote speaker Andrea Frabetti, CEO of Sunseeker International. Captain Brian Murphy gave a presentation about the vision for Poole as an expanding superyacht destination entitled “Superyachts of Poole Harbour – A Visionary Step Change”. There will be a significant expansion of the port to grow superyacht capacity and Richard Selby of British Superyacht gave an informative presentation entitled “Our Superyacht Industry - The Way Ahead”.

Outing Goal:

The International SeaKeepers Society attended the Poole Harbour Superyacht Forum to hear updates about the masterplan for the region and to learn more about the future plans for the British superyacht community.
