Unveiled - 2012's World Superyacht Award Winners
This year's World Superyacht Award winners were unveiled at its seventh award ceremony, which took place on 5th May 2012 at the spectacular Çırağan Palace Kempinski, in the beautiful city of Istanbul.
Once again, the annual gala dinner was attended by the most influential players in the superyacht industry, as well as a select group of yacht owners. As sponsors of the event - and with a number of fantastic yachts in contention to receive awards - Camper & Nicholsons' executives, brokers, clients and guests were there to watch the highly anticipated distribution of these well regarded Neptune trophies.
This year, worthy winners included Tango, which was awarded first place in both the Motor Yacht of the Year and Displacement Motor Yacht of 1,300GT to 2,999GT categories, Serene in the Displacement Motor Yacht 3000GT and above category, Satori in the Three Deck Semi - Displacement category, Vertigo in Sailing Yacht of the Year, and Shooting Star in the Two Deck and Open Semi-Displacement category. From Camper & Nicholsons' charter fleet and fighting it out to be crowned Best Displacement Motoryacht of 500GT to 1,299G was one of 2011's most eagerly awaited launches - the 60m (196’1) DARLINGS DANAMA. The spectacular motor yacht, which was also built in collaboration with Camper & Nicholsons, narrowly missed out on the top spot in the final round.
Michael Payne - Camper & Nicholsons’ CCO - offers his congratulations to owners of this year’s winners, "Camper & Nicholsons is always keen to support yacht design, innovation, quality and performance, which is why sponsoring these awards is very important to us. Every year the competition gets tougher and demonstrates the continuous evolution of yacht construction and design. The awards provides a fantastic platform to showcase and celebrate 2011's launches and now we are excited to see what 2012 delivers."
