72M DUNYA-BUILT "AXIOMA" WINS SPECIAL JUDGES COMMENDATION AT WORLD SUPERYACHT AWARDS

 |   | 

Launched last summer by Dunya Yachts, she is the largest motor yacht ever to be built in Turkey and the first from Dunya. The star of last year’s Monaco Yacht Show she made more headline news by being sold on the very last day by YPI. Now AXIOMA (ex: Red Square) picks up a well deserved Judges’ Commendation at this year’s 9th World Superyacht Awards in the stunning Het Scheepvaartmuseum, National Maritime Museum, Amsterdam, Holland.

Now in its 9th year, the World Superyacht Awards present arguably the most coveted trophies in the superyacht industry today. An acclaimed panel of Judges made up of yacht owners, industry specialists and renowned journalists spend months visiting some of the world’s most stunning new superyacht builds delivered to owners during the previous twelve months to finally decide on those yachts they believe deserve a little extra honour for their design, build, innovation, performance and all round perfection.

“We have been blessed over theyears with the yachts we have  chosen to represent at YPI,” says YPI Head of Sales, Russell Crump.“Last year we won with the sublime Holland Jachtbouw J-Class replica, RAINBOW. Now this year, a yacht we are very proud to be involved with, has once again been recognised as one of the finest and innovative in superyachting today.”

Built on spec and, to date, the largest motor yacht to have been constructed in Turkey, AXIOMA is the result of the combined skill, expertise and talent of Diana Scott for the lines, the late Alberto Pinto for the interior, and Dunya Yachts, headed by Sedat Ergun, for construction.

“My father always used to say ‘try to surprise people rather than disappoint’ and with (AXIOMA ex Red Square) I’m pleased to say this is exactly what we did,” says Sedat Ergun. “We worked with some of the most experienced brains and craftsmen in the business to create a world-class vessel that will continue to be a showcase of what the Dunya Yachts brand can achieve. We use the best skill and know-how to be found anywhere in the world and we are proud to have her representing us on the world’s oceans.”

At 72.5m, AXIOMA is a lot of yacht with a number of exceptional features and a widely acclaimed sense of flow in terms of both space and function, perfectly exemplified by the vast open mezzanine, gallery area combining two decks on the aft end of the main saloon. The yacht also offers a large swimming pool, 7-seater cinema, spa, a gym on the bridge deck for energising views and all guest cabins on the main deck making maximum use of natural light and offering stunning views for all guests.

“Sometimes in yachting you can find the most stunning lines only to be let down by finish or ill-considered interior layout,” says Russell Crump. “AXIOMA is the embodiment of clever and artistic design with practical, yet innovative layout and exemplary build and finish. She is a yacht, created and represented by a team we are proud to be a part of.”

AXIOMA is now available for charter with YPI Charter.
