Burger Boat Company announced that INGOT, a 153 ft Tri Deck Motor Yacht was presented with the inaugural Michael C. Fina Interior Design Award at the ShowBoats International Cavallino Yacht Hop on January 23, 2009.
This new award is for design excellence and was launched by the purveyors of interior design accoutrements; Michael C. Fina. As Steven Fina commented, “Every single yacht considered had something unique, but we were looking beyond the ‘wow’ factor. Our winner needed to reflect our benchmarks for individuality; innovation; distinctiveness; continuity; versatility; timeless look and feel; and brilliance of overall concept. It also needed to balance detail, elegance, and be the sum of all things luxurious.”
Michael C. Fina said, “It’s truly remarkable what has taken place in the industry,” Fina said “we’ve seen a drama of increasing size as we work with designers, builders, and owners. The award is really our way of honoring the relationships we’ve had with an industry which has supported us.”
INGOT was a collaboration between the renowned Burger Design Team and Vripack in the Netherlands.
