How to enter the Young Designer of the Year Award 2017

Your fist step towards entry must be to complete the ‘ Registration of Interest’ form on our website. You will then be sent a link enabling you to download documents and a CAD file that further defines the task and provides you with a starting point for your design. The CAD file is suitable for importation into Rhino or other 3D marine design programs.

Should it be necessary to make any amendments to the text of the Task (which is detailed on the following page), we will send a notification to all those who have completed the ‘Registration of Interest’ form. At the same time, the Text of the Problem on the event web site will be amended to show any changes in RED.

How to submit your entry

Your design should be submitted using email or, should it be too ‘heavy’ for email transmission, by a data transfer service of your choice (such as YouSendIt) to:

YoungDesigneroftheYear@boatinternationalmedia.com by 12.00 hours GMT on 30th November 2016. Entries submitted after this deadline will not be judged.


The event will be judged on the 12th December 2016 by a jury consisting of internationally known yacht designers as listed on our website.

The top six finalists for the Student designer category and the top three finalists for the Professional designer category will be announced shortly after the judging.

The €5,000 prize will be presented to the winner in February 2017 during the Young Designer of the Year Award prize giving in Kitzbuhel, Austria, which forms part of the Showboats Design Awards in conjunction with the Superyacht Design Symposium.

Please note that decisions made by the organising authority and the Judging Panel are final and cannot be contested.
