nextgen owner: managing tomorrow's superyacht event

27th june 2024

In June, we are delighted to attend the Quaynote event focused on the next generation of superyacht owners. Mitch LaBrie and Matthew Roberts will be in attendance. 

Matthew shares his thoughts on the upcoming event:

“I’m looking forward to the Quaynote event focused on the next generation of superyacht owners. The panel on ‘AI and the Metaverse’ is fascinating as we wait to see how emerging technology, like AI, finds its place and effectiveness in all industries. Will AI replace human connection in yachting, where relationships have always been vital? Where could it improve but potentially detract from the experience for owners now and in the future?

It’s great to see the same panel’s agenda making time to consider the implications of cybersecurity with the increased use and inclusion of AI technology. Recent headlines about Apple’s own intelligence product collaborating with the notorious OpenAI, with Elon Musk raising informed concerns about what this means, even to the extent that he may ban iPhones within his companies such as Tesla and SpaceX (with its formidable Starlink service), and others.

It is hotly debated by the people at the bleeding edge of technology, which will continue to affect us all at home and in our professional lives. Exciting times!”
