Charter Yachts Steal the Stage at Design Awards Show

Luxury Yacht Charter Vessels Win Superyacht Design Awards

The clean, simple, chiseled elegance of CMN Yacht CLOUD 9 wasn’t the only 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 caliber of the newest and largest yachts in the rental marketplace continues to improve year after year, as owners push the design envelope to new heights.  Sponsored by ShowBoats International, the inaugural awards ceremony took place in October at the exclusive Mar A Lago Club, Donald Trump’s private club in Palm Beach, Florida. Following a two-day Superyacht Design Symposium, 350 guests gathered for an evening of cocktails, a gala dinner and Awards ceremony honoring the industry’s creative talents: the architects, designers, stylists, craftsmen, and innovators in yacht technologies.

ShowBoats Design Awards evolved from design-focused awards previously a part of the Boat International Media World Superyacht Awards, and introduced a number of new categories. The jury compromised four superyacht owners (specifically chosen for their interest in design issues), plus two naval architects, a senior yacht captain, an experienced yacht chef, and six design professionals with no links to the industry. With more than 200 nominations, it was an incredibly tough task for the experienced panel.

Joining the 60-meter superyacht 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
Mega yacht HURRICANE RUN motor yacht charter

LIARA – Best Naval Architecture: Sailing Yacht

SYCARA IV – Best Naval Architecture: Motor Yacht
SALPERTON IV – Best Exterior Design & Styling: Sailing Yacht

UP next on the yacht award calendar is the 2011 World Superyacht Awards.  Hosted by the editors of Boat International Media, the awards honor the finest new vessels delivered to their owners in the past twelve months.
Considered the “Oscars” of the megayacht industry – the ceremony scheduled for May 7, 2011 will be attended by an elite guest list of  owners from around the globe and the most influential players in the business of boats.

62 finalists are in contention to receive a coveted Neptune Trophy, including the 56-meter Panthalassa and the 60-meter MARY JEAN II.
