10th April 2017
More than 500 marine enthusiasts met for a night of celebration and fundraising at the Superyacht Charities Ball.
On Saturday April 1 a whole spectrum of individuals from the superyacht industry met for dinner, dancing and a charity auction at the Hilton Hotel in Southampton.
The chosen charities for the 2017 ball included Turn to Starboard, Sail4Cancer and The Super Yacht Charities .
The glittering event raised approximately £70,000 with around a third of the amount to be donated to Turn to Starboard in the near future.
During the day before the main event of the Ball, there was a Charity Cricket Match at the Ageas Bowl at the venue. In the evening the main auction saw a host of experiences and goods up for the taking including a luxury beach hut weekend, tickets to see England vs Australia at Twickenham, family photography sessions and helicopter tours.
