There’s one thing at the heart of every memorable yacht: exceptional craftsmanship. That’s why, at BOAT International, we are launching an awards event dedicated to those who spend countless hours developing and perfecting their skills, training the next generation to do the same, and of course, creating beautiful things in the process.
With the winners set to be announced in 2024, here is everything you need to know on the run up to the all-important awards.
The BOAT Artistry and Craft Awards will launch in 2023 with the following two categories and aims to draw entrants from far and wide, in a celebration of those people, places and things, that represent the very highest form of luxury.
Category one: Excellence in craftsmanship
This award recognises an object whose construction is, in the judges' view, second to none. The object must have appeared onboard a yacht delivered between January 1, 2023 and December 31, 2023. The objects do not have to be integrated.
Category two: Emerging artisan of the year”
This award brings to light an artisan whose work has recently appeared onboard a yacht for the first time, and who shows outstanding talent and promise. The individual artist must have been featured onboard a yacht delivered between January 1, 2023 and December 31, 2023.
The select panel of judges bring hundreds of years of collective experience and are knowledgeable and experienced industry names. It is their personal interest that drives the judging process and we owe the judges an enormous debt for their enthusiasm and generosity.
