Held this year in the spectacular ÇÃ„Â±raÃ„ÂŸan Palace Kempinski alongside the Bosphorus strait overlooking the ancient city of Istanbul, Turkey, the World Superyacht Awards combines a glittering awards ceremony with gala dinner and dance to earn itself the accolade of being the “Oscars” for the superyacht world.
Attended by an elite guest list of superyacht owners from around the globe and the most influential players in the superyacht industry it honours the most innovative, artistic, influential and simply sublime examples of superyacht design and creation anywhere in the world.
Following last year’s superb win by YPI Charter yacht, MARY-JEAN II, this year’s seventh edition saw two of the Group’s yachts being voted Award Finalists – the 45m Bilgin-built TATIANA originally for sale with YPI Brokerage and ISA’s superb 50m LIBERTY for charter with YPI Charter.
YPI CEO, Bertrand Vogèle and Head of YPI Charter,Fiona Maureso both attended this year’s event.
“These Awards offer a great opportunity for owners, designers, builders, and brokers to get together to celebrate some of the very best in our industry today,” says Bertrand Vogèle. “I am proud to see the level of design and technology that is now coming out of yachting…and it’s very reassuring to see the passion that continues to be held for yachts and yachting around the world.”
“Yachts voted through to the Finals are invariably ground-breaking and exceptional yachts in their categories,” explains Fiona Maureso. “It is comforting to see so many of our charter and brokerage yachts making it to the Finals each year – it means our goal of offering the very best to our clients is being reached.”
