Boat International Media’s senior editors have whittled down over 100 superyacht nominations to an outstanding list of 62 finalists who are in contention to receive a coveted Neptune Trophy.
We would like to congratulate all of the owners and the teams responsible for these exceptional yachts. To be shortlisted as a Finalist at the World Superyacht Awards is an achievement in itself.
An independent jury comprised of 14 superyacht owners will meet in March at Porto Montenegro, located at Tivat in the picturesque Bay of Kotor, to decide which yachts will receive a prized Neptune Award in 2011.
The results will remain secret until the winners are announced during a glittering gala evening at London’s Guildhall on Saturday 7th May 2011, where the host for the evening will be Natasha Kaplinksy.
