Neptune Trophy 2013

2013 is the eighth year of the World Superyacht Awards, and this year promises to produce some highly deserved winners. The Boat International Media organisation has meticulously refined the elite list of superyacht nominees into an exclusive list of finalists, who are now only one step away from being awarded one of the highly sought after Neptune Trophies.

Expert judges will soon meet to select 14 winners who have been classified on the basis of the type and size of each superyacht. Following consultation with naval architects and yacht builders, different yacht award categories have been established allowing yachts to be judged against other vessels of similar specifications.

With two industry specialists and twenty luxury yacht owners in their ranks, the jury will soon be visiting those few remaining vessels that, as yet, have not been seen. In addition to the individual reports presented to the judges, the owners also provide comprehensive dossiers, which contain photographs, diagrams and specifications so that the jury understand the finer points of these splendid vessels. Only then will the jury members make their final and extremely difficult decision that will remain a secret until the grand presentation ceremony in May 2013. While there can only be one winner for each award, all of the contestants know that being selected as a finalist is a huge achievement in itself, and one they can be rightfully proud of.

The winners of these coveted prizes will be declared on 4th May 2013 during the glamorous gala evening at the historic Çiragan Palace Kempinski, in Istanbul. Once the home of sultans, this stunning hotel is a former Ottoman palace on the shores of the Bosphorus, more commonly known as the Istanbul Strait. The romantic setting and constant five star reviews of this hotel make it a perfect venue for such a prestigious international event.
