The world’s most jaw-dropping superyachts have been named at a prestigious awards ceremony.
Boat International Media’s World Superyacht Awards 2020 took place last week with the 77m (295ft) Pi – a vessel estimated to cost £120million – sailing away with the highly coveted Motor Yacht of the Year award after being described as ‘bordering on perfection’.
Other vessels that swept up awards at the online ceremony were Lady S, a 93-metre yacht which has a gym on the bridge deck as well as the first 3D Dolby Imax cinema on a superyacht, and The Beast, which has a ‘forbidding military exterior’, but a luxury interior.
Commenting on the winners across 16 categories, Stewart Campbell, editor-in-chief of London-based Boat International, said: ‘It’s been another exceptional year for the superyacht sector with some ground-breaking designs in this year’s entries. The winners of these awards represent the absolute pinnacle of yacht design and construction and on behalf of the team at Boat International, I’d like to offer heartfelt congratulations to this year’s winners.’
Prince Albert II of Monaco, who made an appearance at the online awards ceremony, added: ‘I am delighted to participate in the awards. The yachting industry is of the upmost importance for the Principality, representing a major component of its economy. The teams and owners behind all the 57 nominated yachts should be proud of their accomplishments.’
