HOW WE ARE

"Big heart and wide horizon". This Frisian saying describes us very well. Our heart beats in the north, for the sea and yachting - 365 days a year. 

We have a clear view of what is happening for our clients and our work. We have open eyes and ears, an alert mind and a lot of experience. We use this to bring client projects and our own events in the water sports sector safely and successfully to their destination.

OCEAN LOVERS

WHO WE ARE

We are a start-up with a powerful team of committed event professionals, marketing specialists and digital nerds who are all also addicted to the sea. 

The founder and skipper of YACHTFESTIVAL365 GmbH is Heiko Zimmermann. He was project manager of the hanseboot, the HAMBURG ancora YACHTFESTIVAL, the leisure fair oohh!, responsible for the Hamburg Harbour Birthday. Before that he developed the Hamburg brand and worked for Dehler and Pantaenius as marketing manager. He has also been a passionate sailor and boat owner for over 40 years. The Elbe, North Sea and Baltic Sea are his stomping grounds.

TRUE HEADING

WHERE we are heading

 

We are rethinking the topic of boat shows and are convinced that live events in water sports will continue to be the most important touchpoints on the customer journey in the future. For this, we pick up the target group online. We want to accompany the real and virtual journey of our customers 365 days a year. The goal is to become a relevant hub with our partners and thus create the connection between emotional experiences and information.
