Jeff Houlgrave, Superyacht UK Chairman opening the event and welcoming the attendees

The Superyacht UK Christmas Reception took place on Tuesday evening at the Southampton Harbour Hotel and was attended by over 100 guests from the superyacht sector. This successful evening saw a presentation about the new generation of cyber defence systems available for luxury yachts, shipping, ports and businesses.

Natasha Lambert BEM attended as a charity guest. She is an amazingly inspirational woman with cerebral palsy and quadriplegia who is on a mission to sail the Atlantic Ocean in November 2019. A raffle and auction raised around £3,500 towards equipment and fitting out of Natasha’s yacht, which Natasha and her family were not expecting. The family had just hoped to raise awareness of the mission in the hope that some British Marine members may wish to support them with expertise and equipment.
