M/Y Silentworld, a 130-foot (40m) boat built in 2006 by Spanish yard Cies-Oassive, won the Australian Voyage Award this month a gala dinner at the Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove Resort in Queensland.

The award – presented to the megayacht, foreign or domestic, that completed the most inspirational cruise in Australian waters in 2017 – was a new category in this year’s Australian Marine Industry Awards.
