After receiving a massive amount of nominations, Boat International Media’s expert team of editors have refined the nominees to an impressive list of World Superyacht Award finalists who now stand in contention to receive a renowned Neptune trophy. Over the next few weeks the judges will be personally visiting the contenders, with at least one judge inspecting each vessel, to inspect the details and quality the yachts. Not only does the physical inspection come into play, however. When the judges convene at the YCCS Virgin Gorda Clubhouse on the first day of the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta & Rendezvous, the jury will take into consideration comprehensive dossiers, including photographs and statements from the yacht owners, builders, and designers of each of the finalists along with the inspecting judges’ testimonies. The results of their deliberations will remain secret until May 4th where they will reveal this year’s winners at Çırağan Palace Kempinski in Istanbul, which is a former Ottoman palace bordering the Bosphorus, at the ceremonial dinner.
Combining a glittering awards ceremony with a gala dinner and dance, the Awards – dubbed the “Oscars” of the superyacht world – will be attended by an elite guest list of superyacht owners from around the globe and the most influential players in the superyacht industry. In 2012, the winner of “Motor Yacht of the Year” was the 254′ Feadship “Tango” which was launched in 2011. No surprise, as Feadship yachts are consistently recognized as some of the highest quality custom motor yachts built.
