Sanlorenzo Asia hosted its first Captains Workshop in Hong Kong, which was held at Aberdeen Boat Club in Hong Kong and in the nearby Simpson Marine service yard, both located close to the dealer’s headquarters.
Attracting about 70 captains and crew of Sanlorenzo and Bluegame yachts plus Simpson Marine service and yacht-management staff, the three-day event included trainings on various systems aboard a Sanlorenzo SL96A and SX88, and a Bluegame BGX70.

Sessions were led by members of Sanlorenzo’s service team in Italy, the Sanlorenzo Asia service team, as well as instructors and experts from world’s leading equipment manufacturers covering engines, generators, coating, structural, electronics, navigation and other fields.
Featuring workshops, seminars and practical training sessions, the Captains Workshop was designed to provide a platform for captains and crews to enhance their skills, knowledge and expertise in yacht operation and maintenance.
