On 18th April 2015, five industry friends got together to organise a Pre-Med party.
The success of this party led Derek Munro, on the 19th April 2015, to purchase a number of domain names, including www.superyachtcharities.com with the goal of creating an annual event raising funds for good causes as per our current charter. Over lunch in a local pub on Friday 08th May 2015 Derek then approached the four others who had all worked together to create the Pre-Med party and every one of them committed to moving Superyacht Charities forward.
Superyacht Charities began at approximately 1400hrs on 08th May 2015.
Superyacht Charities formally became a recognised Charity on the 30th March 2016 just in time to be announced at the April Ball of 2016.
The Founding Trustees were:
Derek Munro (Founder)
As each year has progressed Superyacht Charities has raised more funds for causes globally and the number of events each year has increased to help us reach a much broader audience.
