On 24th October, 2013 Robb Report China hosted the sixth ‘Best of the Best’ awards at the Westin Hotel in the city of Ningbo, Zhejiang Province.

The revolutionary 65m Fast Displacement motor yacht Galactica Star has now won her fourth international recognition in less than a month; after receiving the Prix du Design from HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, the Nautilus award from Yacht Design Magazine and La Belle Classe from the Yacht Club de Monaco.

The jury of ‘Best of the Best,’ Robb Report China is composed of four well-known representatives of the Chinese yachting and shipbuilding industry who are also fine yacht connoisseurs:

Mr. Yang Xin Fa – Vice Secretary of CANSI (China Association of the National Shipbuilding Industry)
Mr. Wang Chao Yong – President of China Equity International Holding Co. Ltd. and President of team China at the America’s Cup 2005

The four judges expressed their preference for superyacht Galactica Star because of her revolutionary technology, the Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) devised by Van Oossanen Naval Architects, which makes her 30 per cent more efficient than any traditional displacement vessel. The jury was also impressed by the beauty and elegance of the exterior lines by Frank Laupman, perfectly and harmoniously complemented by the luxurious interior design by Bannenberg and Rowell.
