A programme of events to celebrate YPI’s 45th anniversary at the Monaco Yacht Show includes a panel discussion on the future of superyacht brokerage, and an exclusive White Party at the Monaco Yacht Club to entertain the invited clients and industry colleagues.
“I am very proud that YPI is celebrating 45 years this September,” said Laurent Debart, CEO of YPI. “As one of the three oldest yacht brokerage companies and the only one connected to a shipbroking company established for 160 years, our experience continues to set our service apart from the competition.”
“Yet while this is an opportunity to look back on everything we have achieved since 1972, our focus today is always on the future. YPI in 2017 is about looking ahead, embracing an exciting new phase for the company, and finding new ways to use our experience to shape the superyacht stories of the next generation.”
Custom built in 2006 by Holland Jachtbouw, Shogun is presented fresh from an extensive refit. Its design, engineering and exterior styling are by Dixon Yacht Design and its interiors are by John Munford.
The yacht sleeps up to six guests in three cabins, a master suite and two twins. Shogun completed a refit including new teak decks, a repaint of the mast, boom, hull and superstructure, servicing of the engine and generator and the installation of new AV systems.
