Luxury lifestyle technology leader, Crestron, will be showcasing the best in marine technology during SuperyachtDESIGN week from 28-30th June, at Design Centre Chelsea Harbour. Crestron’s showroom is opening its doors throughout SuperyachtDESIGN Week and will also play host to a number of workshops.
SuperyachtDESIGN week, now in its fourth year, shines a light on the world of creative and innovative yacht design with events focusing on the latest design topics, and insights on key style trends from industry experts. One of the hottest topics will be smart technology, an essential feature for large yachts providing the ultimate in luxury and security. Crestron will be highlighting the capabilities of its marine offering, which provides the same elegant lifestyle benefits of comfort, convenience and reliability out at sea, as it does in the home.
A schedule of six workshops will take place at Crestron’s stylish showroom at DDCH, including Crestron’s own workshop ‘Designing with Peace of Mind’ at 15.00 on 29th June. This lively panel discussion, chaired by Paddy Baker, editor of Installation magazine, will explore challenges that concern both owners and crew with security on super yachts, and the precautions that can be taken to protect on board systems while still providing 24/7 VIP service. The diverse panel will include Patrick Coote MD of yacht designer Blohm+Voss Monaco, Neil Grant from technology integrator Harris Grant and Ammet Sarraiya, CTO of Van Berge Henegouwen.
