The International Superyacht Society Awards winners were announced last night during a glittering ceremony in Fort Lauderdale and saw a number of luxury charter yachts recognised for their exception design and construction.
Each year on the evening before the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the International Superyacht Society brings together leading professionals from all areas of the yachting industry to award individuals and companies made exceptional contributions to yachting. For superyachts launched within the last year, there are six award categories open for nominations while the seventh is reserved for notable refits completed within the same time frame.
The finalists for the 2014 ISS Awards included an impressive selection of new additions to the global charter fleet this year, four of which took home the coveted trophies. The 33m/108ft Logos Marine built luxury catamaran QUARANTA won her ‘Best Power 24m to 40m’ group while ‘Best Sail 24m to 40m’ went to the already multi-award winning charter yacht INUKSHUK.

Following her highly anticipated launch from Alloy Yachts earlier this year, the magnificent 56m/184ft sailing yacht ‘Mondango 3’ took the prestigious prize for ‘Best Sail 40m+’. With Dubois Naval Architects responsible for her design and Reymond Langton styling her interior, she has quickly become highly-regarded on the charter market. To top off, ‘Best Refit’ went to the stunning 60m/197ft superyacht DREAM. Built in 2001 by Abeking and Rasmussen, she was recently refitted by Jones Boatyard and Dynamic Yacht Management and boasts design by Donald Starkey and interiors by Bannenberg and Rowell.
The impressive number of nominations and overall winners from the charter fleet demonstrates the exceptional quality that is available on the current market.
