With the World Superyacht Awards 2016 only a few months away, the judges came together in London last weekend (March 3-5) to decide who would be awarded this year's prizes. Of course, it wasn't all hard work and the weekend kicked off with a beautiful dinner held in partnership with Northacre at the Magazine restaurant at the Serpentine - a fitting venue with architecture inspired by waves.
