ShowBoats Design Awards honour the superyacht industry’s creative talents at their annual Monaco ceremony

Alloy Yachts’ 67.2m sailing yacht Vertigo was declared the evening’s big winner, with designers Philippe Briand and Christian Liaigre taking home three Neptunes for Exterior Design & Styling, Interior Layout and Best Recreational Space for Guest Use (for her novel midships lazarettes on the lower deck).

Also picking up multiple awards were Peder Eidsgaard and the design team behind Feadship’s 77.7m Tango, who received two awards for Motor Yacht Exterior Design & Styling and for the design of the Tender to Tango, much admired by the judges for an appearance that subtly matched its mothership while boasting supreme comfort and first-class construction.

Michael Leach Design swept two categories for Sailing Yacht Interior Design and Interior Layout for Hemisphere, sharing both as joint winners with Hetairos and Vertigo respectively.

Hetairos also picked up the win for her builder, Baltic Yachts, in the Design & Technology category for her diesel-electric drive train system featuring two 360-degree rotating thrusters that retract into watertight boxes.

Motor yacht Numptia won two Neptunes, for Naval Architecture thanks to Axis Group Yacht Design, and for Bespoke Furniture for Achille Salvagni’s design for the main dining room table.

Musashi’s subtle blend of Japanese design with Bauhaus and American Art Deco influences saw Sinot Yacht Design triumph in the Motor Yacht Interior Design 60m+ category, while Bartender and Satori took the smaller displacement and semi-displacement awards, respectively.

David Ostrander of Iluminus Design Group was in attendance to collect the Newcomer of the Year Award, presented for the restyling of the interior of motor yacht SnowbirD, and aspiring yacht designer Benjamin Julian Toth from Vienna, Austria, was declared the Young Designer of the Year for his project ReSeadence 50.
