Judges from across the industry’s media selected the winners for four awards categories:
MYS/RINA Award – M/Y ATTILA from Sanlorenzo
Sanlorenzo luxury yacht ATTILA is an imposing vessel that measures 64m/209.9ft and spans six decks. Her on board facilities include a spacious beach club, a massage room, sauna, Jacuzzi and a helipad.
Interior Design Award– M/Y TIS from Lürssen
At 110m/364.2ft, mega yacht TIS is a presence on the water and has a top speed of 18 knots. British studio Winch Design were behind her award-winning interiors as well as her exteriors, and guest spaces include a glass-ceiling orangery-styled formal dining area on the top deck, a stone-carved grove of lemon trees in the spa that has gold-painted lemons, and classic furniture emulating the 16th-18th Centuries across the decks.
Exterior Design Award– M/Y EXCELLENCE from Abeking & Rasmussen
Finest New Superyacht Award– M/Y EXCELLENCE from Abeking & Rasmussen
The recently delivered 80m/262ft Abeking & Rasmussen luxury yacht EXCELLENCE made her public debut at the Monaco Yacht Show this year and her attendance has been rewarded with not one but two awards. This motor yacht also features interior and exterior styling from Winch Design, securing the studio’s reputation as one of the leading design houses in the industry.
The exterior styling features a sheer inverse bow and design elements more often associated with naval ships and futuristic craft. The curved mirrored glass was an impressive feat of engineering that allows guests to enjoy floor-to-ceiling panoramas, and other guest amenities include a swimming pool, beach club and Jacuzzi.
These award-winning luxury yachts and their competitors will be on display at the Monaco Yacht Show 2019, running from the 25th to the 28th of September.
