Super Yacht Show Hero Honoured

Kaye Pearson the driving force behind establishing the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and creating what is today one of the most important shows in the Super Yacht show circuit will be honoured as part of the International Superyacht Society’s 19th International Design Awards Gala at the Harbor Beach Marriott hotel on the first night of the show.

“We needed to recognize him,” said Bob Saxon of Bob Saxon Consulting Services, who noted Pearson was one of the founders of ISS in 1989.

“Kaye’s contributions to the global yachting scene are noteworthy and commendable, his philanthropic efforts and leadership energies helped to initiate and bring the International Superyacht Society to prominence.”

Pearson will be posthumously honoured with the society’s President’s Award, which will be presented to his widow, Cheri. She also will be given a bronze bust of her late husband sculpted by the wildlife artist, Kent Ullberg, which will be unveiled at the gala.
