The World Superyacht Awards 2011 turned into a runaway sweep of every major sailing yacht category as Ed Dubois and his team of designers at Dubois Naval Architects, Ltd., took home the coveted Neptune Trophy in five categories, including Sailing Yacht of the Year.
Presented by Boat International Media, the World Superyacht Awards 2011 edition was held this past Saturday, May 5, in London.
Dubois-designed winners included:
â— Sailing YACHT of the YEAR – 49.7 meter Fitzroy sloop sail yacht ZEFIRA
â— BEST Sailing Yacht from 30 to 44.99 meters: Alloy sloop sail yacht IMAGINE
â— Judges’ COMMENDATION: 57.5 meter Royal Huisman ketch sail yacht TWIZZLE
Megayacht KOKOMO first came to the attention of our readers in January 2011 when she was named Best Sailing Yacht over 40 meters at the 20th annual International Superyacht Society Design Awards in Fort Lauderdale, FL. At the time, Dubois referred to the Mediterranean yacht charter vessel as, "…quite simply, the most advanced yacht of her type in the world today."
