For the tenth time, the MYS organisers – in collaboration with the French Crystal manufacturer Baccarat for their second consecutive year as event partner – put one superyacht on a pedestal above the other 100-plus superyachts exhibited at the show. To qualify for the short list the yacht has to be presented by the shipyard that built her. To win, she has to impress the jury! The 65-metre motor yacht Galactica Star’s interior did just that, beating stiff competition from other builders and designers.

Dickie Bannenberg – of Bannenberg+Rowell, Galactica Star yacht’s interior designers – says: “We are excited to hear of Galactica Star’s award of the Prix du Design. To win this prize amongst a show-full of leading yachts is a credit to the whole team assembled by Heesen – we have enjoyed every minute of the collaboration.”

Jury of superyacht journalists

As well as the MYS organisation committee and senior Baccarat executives, the jury comprised some industry figures including Paul Ashton, Editor Superyacht World, Sophie Cotelle, VP Marketing (Lighting & Furniture) Baccarat, Nick Jeffery, Principal Nick Jeffery Yacht Publicity, Gaelle Tallarida, Managing Director Monaco Yacht Show and Matteo Zaccagnino, Editor Yacht Capital and Yacht Design.
