Now in its 6th edition, this year’s glitzy ceremony was opened by CEO Tony Harris. The winners were carefully selected by a panel of independent judges, comprising of owners, crew and acclaimed naval architects and yacht designers.
Superyacht Grace E was the sole charter vessel to be acknowledged at the awards, winning the ‘Naval Architecture Award – Displacement Motor Yacht’ and Exterior Design & Styling - Motor Yacht Above 500GT’ for Philip Briand’s design, as well as the Interior Design Award - Motor Yacht above 500GT – recognising the work of Remi Tessier.
Grace E also collected the ‘Environmental Protection Award,’ acknowledging the work of Perini Navi's Pichiotti's shipyard in incorporating eco-friendly features into the build. Notably, she is designed to minimise noise and environmental impact, and features a diesel-electric propulsion system (with Azipod (POD) transmissions).
Other big winners included the 46m Feadship superyacht COMO, which picked up three awards, including the ‘Naval Architecture Award - Semi-Displacement Motor Yacht,’ ‘Exterior Design & Styling Award - Motor Yacht below 500GT’ and ‘Interior Design Award - Motor Yacht below 500GT.’
