By its very nature, a superyacht is worthy of high praise, but the few that bring the extra factor are naturally singled out during awards season. And it’s a praiseworthy reward. Scooping top spot, and even being short-listed for an accolade, helps to raise the profile of a yacht and its crew. It’s typically the design of a boat that is singled out – either for an extraordinary exterior or a trend-setting interior, and on occasion both - but whatever the reason, there’s always good reason.
Guests who enjoy the cache of chartering an award-winning yacht often reap the rewards of ground-breaking beach clubs, sprawling sun decks and an abundance of interior volume. From impressive wellness centers and spas to some of the most advanced environmentally-forward yachts on the planet, the growing range of awards categories point to the latest trends on the market and the efforts made by shipyards, designers and owners to make superyachts today as progressive, sustainable and experience-centric as they can be. Winning an award is more than a trophy on a shelf, it singles out the arrival of a new benchmark in yachting.
