The 42-metre super yacht Calliope has now won not one but two major industry motoryacht awards in her class. Having already received a coveted Neptune Trophy for best planing motoryacht in this year’s World Superyacht Awards, the lovely 42-metre motor yacht Calliope was recently presented with the prestigious Showboats Exterior Design & Styling Award for a semi-displacement motoryacht.

“This is a remarkable achievement for any superyacht,” comments Tako van Ineveld, Commercial Director at Holland Jachtbouw. “But it is surely unique that a yard like Holland Jachtbouw – which has made its name for creating famous sail yachts like charter yacht Windrose of Amsterdam and sailing yacht Athos – could beat all the dedicated powerboat yards to win these two awards. Moreover, Calliope is only our second motoryacht, which speaks volumes for the way we have been able to incorporate sailing yacht standards of finish and fine detailing into the fully custom powerboat environment.”

Calliope super yacht’s double award winning performance is also a testimony to her owner’s dedication to perfection and the exquisite design by Bill Langan and Rhoades Young Design. ” Calliope has been dubbed ‘the ultimate Gentlemen’s yacht’ and I think this is a fair assessment,” Van Ineveld continues. ” She is by no means a typical motoryacht in terms of her colour or shaping, and has a very distinctive look. The fabulous interior is also a key reason why our industry peers have been so impressed with this fascinating project.”

These are busy times at Holland Jachtbouw. The build of the awesome new J-Class sailing yacht Rainbow is now at an advanced stage as the yard gears up for the 2012 regattas in and around Cowes. Construction also recently got underway on another magnificent sailing yacht, a 45-metre high performance sloop from the boards of Dixon Yacht Design. And the yard’s success with motoryachts will continue, having just signed the contact for an extensive interior refit of the 42-metre motoryacht Life SAGA.
