16 & 17 November 2020

Over 52 years of HISWA Symposium

HISWA Symposium 2020 goes virtual!

The renowned international HISWA Symposium on Yacht Design and Yacht Construction offers a new designed programme around the theme ‘Dare to Share’. The programme of this 26th edition is a mix of scientific presentations and applied knowledge about yacht design and yacht construction focused on everyday practice.


Due to the fact that METSTRADE and RAI Amsterdam had to announce that the Marine Equipment Trade Show, which was scheduled on 17-19 November in RAI Amsterdam, has been cancelled, the Symposium will be held virtually this year. on the same dates as scheduled: 16 and 17 November 2020.

All presentations will be broadcasted in the afternoon. In the breaks there will be enough time to network virtually with your colleagues.

The Organising Committee:

Hans Hopman

Delft University of Technology

Michael Steenhoff


Sarah Westdijk

Marine Equipment Trade Show

Guilhem Gaillarde
