THE WINNERS

Elegant CMN Yacht CLOUD 9 was just one luxury yacht charter vessel to catch the attention of the judges at the recent ShowBoats Design Awards. Of the 10 winning private yacht entries, 6 are currently available for either Caribbean or Mediterranean yacht charter.  The newest and largest yachts in the rental marketplace improves every year, as owners push the design envelope to new heights. 
 

THE YACHT RENTAL AWARDS CEREMONY

The inaugural yacht awards ceremony took place in October at the exclusive Mar A Lago Club.  The facility is Donald Trump’s private club in Palm Beach, Florida. It was sponsored by ShowBoats International.   It began with a two-day Superyacht Design Symposium.  On the 3rd day, 350 guests enjoyed an evening of cocktails. The evening also featured a gala dinner and an awards ceremony honoring the yachting industry’s creative talents. Those talents included architects, designers, stylists, craftsmen, and innovators in yacht technologies.

ShowBoats Design Awards came about as a former part of the Boat International Media World Superyacht Awards.  They introduced a number of new categories. The jury included 4 superyacht owners, 2 naval architects, a senior yacht captain, an experienced yacht chef, and six design professionals with no links to the industry. The awards resulted from more than 200 yacht nominations. 

Joining the 60-meter charteryacht Cloud 9 on the winner’s stage were:

  • HURRICANE RUN – Best Interior Design: Displacement Motor Yacht
  • SLIPSTREAM –  along with sistership CLOUD 9 – Best Exterior Design & Styling: Motor Yacht
