Held on the 23rd of March at St Mary’s Stadium Southampton, The Superyacht Charities Ball gathers over 500 of our industry professionals to raise much needed funds for Sail 4 Cancer, Turn to Starboard and Oceans of Hope. Divergent Yachting’s Director Derek Munro is the Chairman of The Superyacht Charities Foundation and this year Divergent Yachting supported the event with its amazing efforts on the night.
The Superyacht Charities (SYC) is a group of 5 friends that work in various occupations within the Superyacht industry. Active since 2012, due to success and growth, it has now formalised charity efforts to create the Superyacht Charities Foundation. The purpose of the foundation is to promote and assist in the raising of funds for charities that superyacht professionals both participate and donate to.
SYC wants to ensure that worthy causes receive as much of the funding as possible and help the growth of the smaller not for profit and non-government funded charitable organisations.
In the previous years the foundation has raised over £70,000 for its chosen charities and continues to raise funds throughout the year by including more events to its calendar.
