About the BOAT International Design & Innovation Awards 2024

8 February 2023

The BOAT International Design & Innovation Awards are specifically devised to judge and recognise the design teams responsible for individual elements of a superyacht. Aspects of the most impressive yachts launched in the preceding calendar year are scrutinised and judged by a panel of design experts. 

Nominations are now open and will remain open until Friday 6 October at 11:59pm. If you have any questions, please contact Annabel.fairlie@boatinternationalmedia.com

Reasons to enterView the categories

While the World Superyacht Awards recognise superyachts in their entirety, the BOAT International Design & Innovation Awards focus directly on the fundamental aspects of superyacht design such as naval architecture, exterior design, deck and interior layout and aesthetics, lifestyle features and tenders, bringing the specialist design skills of the industry’s most talented teams into the spotlight.


The BOAT International Design & Innovation Awards are only open to yachts equal to or more than 24m LOA and delivered to their owners between 1 November 2022 and 24 October 2023. In the case of a yacht built on speculation, the vessel must be complete and operational, sea trialled and ready to be sold to an owner. BOAT International reserves the right to disqualify a yacht if this requirement is discovered not to have been met.
