M/Y Tucana, a 484 Aquila power catamaran in the MarineMax fleet, along with its crew, Capt. Mike Jones and Chef Amy Briggs, was named Best Motor Yacht at the 37th BVI Charter Yacht Show.

“We are honored and excited to receive this award,” Briggs said. “It’s so incredible to have groups of families and friends on board and be able to give them an experience that they will remember for the rest of their lives.”

The four-day trade show, presented by the Charter Yacht Society, was held in December at Nanny Cay Resort and Marina in the British Virgin Islands.

More than 45 crewed yachts were represented by more than 117 charter brokers from 12 countries, according to a statement from MarineMax Vacations. Awards were given in a variety of categories. The Best Motor Yacht Award was given on the merits of the crew in their efforts to provide customers with the best experiences in the British Virgin Islands.
