Some of the newest and largest yachts for hire stole the show at the six annual World Superyacht Awards  in London, May 7, 2011

Of the sixteen new yachts honored, nine are available for hire in popular vacation destinations around the world.   One charter vessel, the 50 meter yacht EXUMA was even selected as the co-winner of the prestigious, "Motor Yacht of the Year."

Considered the "Oscars of the yacht industry," the evening ceremony took place at London’s historic Guildhall.  The glittering gala was attended by a distinguished guest list of over 500 yacht owners, naval architects, designers and their families and friends.

The coveted silver Neptune trophys were presented to a select few proud owners of the finest sail and motor yachts delivered in 2010.
