The World Superyacht Awards honour the finest new superyacht builds delivered to their owners in the past 12 months. The finalists, selected from a considerable number of nominations, are judged by an expert panel and the winners of the 2012 awards will be announced at the gala evening in Istanbul on Saturday 5 May.
Yachts are grouped into a number of categories so they can be judged against peers of similar size and type. Each day in the lead up to the Awards we are highlighting the finalists in every category, and in part 5 we present the middle-sized motor yachts.
Here are the finalists, in alphabetical order, in the category:
