Great Australian voyages could win award

Superyacht Australia encourages captains to apply for the new Australian Voyage Award, which will be presented to the megayacht – foreign or domestic – that completed the most inspirational cruise in Australian waters during 2017.

Captains are asked to apply by 5 p.m. (AEST) on March 23 for the award, which is sponsored by Capt. Carl Brandes of M/Y Glaze and his wife, Melanie Brandes. Capt. Brandes won the Voyagers Award at the World Superyacht Awards and said winning that award inspired him to sponsor an Australian Voyagers Award.  

The winner will be decided by a panel of judges that includes Karen Fitzgerald of Tourism Australia; Barry Jenkins of Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show; MaryAnne Edwards of Superyacht Australia; Capt. Carl Brandes and Melanie Brandes; and a representative from Austrade.

“As a judge of this prestigious award, I’d be looking for a quality submission that demonstrated a genuine wow factor in the planning and execution of an outstanding voyage. A journey that delivered an experience with a difference, an itinerary featuring life changing adventures, and one that showcased Australia’s unique destinations, our food and wine and our friendly people,” Fitzgerald said.

The winner will be announced at the Australian Marine Industry Awards Gala dinner at 7-11 p.m. on May 22 at the Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove resort in Queensland, Australia.
