Memories of colorful and exciting Super Yacht Awards observed on the 16th May 2009 is yet to be erased from the minds of the viewers.

The celebration that took place in one of the legendary avenues of the city of London, Guildhall, saw more than 500 participants representing different sectors of the society. 150 of them were the Super Yacht owners and their friends as well as the pre-eminent members of the Super Yacht Industries.

The crowd “gathered from around the world to enjoy a magnificent gala dinner that was followed by a spectacular awards ceremony and after party”, observed one of the organizers.

“The most glamorous event on the super yacht calendar, the World Super yachts Awards celebrates excellence in the design and build of these vessels, recognizing the dedication and passion of owners and the talents of their builders, naval architects and designers”, he went on to say.

Panel of judges were comprised of 13 super yacht owners as well as a couple of highly reputed industry professionals who dedicated themselves to the task of finding out the best yachts of the year 2008.

“All of the judges made extraordinary efforts to visit as many of the contending yachts as possible and, following receipt of a 400-page dossier containing a detailed brief on every yacht, they gathered at silver sponsor Maybach’s headquarters in Stuttgart in March 2009 to debate and mark every finalist in even greater detail. Each yacht was awarded marks under six headings in a secret ballot and the total of these marks determined the winning yachts”, remarked President of the Organization.

Many leading yacht manufacturers sponsored awards in their respective categories. They were present and participated in the award giving ceremony and took the opportunities of presenting awards to the winners in their corresponding categories.
