Yachts Unfurled, Savannah and Genesi take multiple honors at World Superyacht Awards

ADVERTISEMENT

Unfurled, Savannah and Genesi rose to the top at the 11th annual World Superyacht Awards gala held in May in Florence, Italy.

Each of the top winners, chosen from a field of almost 70 yachts, received two trophies. The competition, organized by Boat International Media, enlists 23 yacht owners as judges.

Named sailing yacht of the year, Unfurled also won the 40m and above sailing yacht class. Motor yacht of the year, Savannah, also won the displacement motor yacht of 1,300gt to 2,999gt class and M/Y Genesi took top honors in both displacement motor yacht below 500gt (42m to 46.99m) and the judges’ commendation for technology and innovation.
This year’s finalists were noted for pushing the boundaries of power, speed, technology, usability, design and comfort. Forty-seven different boat builders and shipyards from 15 countries were represented in the list.

Other notable awards include the voyager’s award which went to M/Y Latitude’s owner Anil Thadani after completing an 11,000-mile expedition through the Northwest Passage around the top of Canada to Alaska and the Pacific Ocean.
M/Y Malahne underwent a 30 month restoration to the original 1930s look of the yacht which was once owned by film producer Sam Spiegel. He used the vessel as his production office and hotel while filming Lawrence of Arabia.
Wider Yachts received an award for their first superyacht, Genesi, in the displacement motor yacht of below 500gt category. Launched late last year, the yacht included an advanced propulsion system that received the award for technology and innovation.


Dr. Jim Clark was given the Legacy award.
