About the World Superyacht Awards
Organized by Boat International Media, the World Superyacht Awards honour the finest new superyacht builds delivered to their owners in the past twelve months.
The image of the coveted Neptune trophy has become synonymous with excellence in superyacht build and design. These prestigious awards are now displayed on magnificent vessels all over the globe, a badge of distinction proudly worn by their owners.
There are five awards for displacement motor yachts (those vessels that always displace their own weight of water), and four awards for semi-displacement motor yachts that at higher speeds displace less than their weight of water, operating in ‘planing’ mode. This distinction is made because these two types of yachts call for very different construction philosophies, the latter type being much more lightly-built. Two further awards are reserved for sailing yachts, and one award for yachts that have been given major refits that finished in the qualifying year. Finally, there are two awards for the motor yacht and sailing yacht that are considered by the judges to be the most notable in the qualifying year.
The World Superyacht Awards was established to recognize the remarkable ingenuity and innovation demanded by the design, engineering and construction of the world’s finest luxury yachts.
