In a gala held at the Monaco Opera House, Alloy Yachts' 67.2 meter sail yacht VERTIGO was declared the evening's big winner, in front of a VIP audience of megayacht owners and the industry’s leading designers and naval architects. 
Designers Philippe Briand and Christian Liaigre took home three Neptune Awards for Exterior Design & Styling, Interior Layout and Best Recreational Space for Guest Use.
Built in New Zealand, and launched in 2011, yacht VERTIGO, at 837GRT, is the largest luxury sailing charter vessel to be built in the Southern Hemisphere.   It took 29 months to design and build the 5-stateroom cruiser.
