by Malcolm MacLean
The great and the good of the superyacht industry gathered at London's historic Guildhall on Saturday night for the fifth annual World Superyachts Awards. 18 "Neptunes" were presented to the winners by news broadcaster Mishal Hussein.
Arkley, the 60-metre motor yacht built by Lürssen and designed by Espen Oeino, won the coveted Motor Yacht of the Year Award and Hanuman, Jim Clark’s 42-metre J-Class yacht built by Royal Huisman and designed by Dykstra Naval Architects, won Sailing Yacht of the Year.
Full details of all the winners are available on the World Superyacht Awards page. A number of them, including Arkley, are available for charter this summer, and Tenaz, the 40m sailing yacht by Pendennis and winner in the new 'Voyagers' category, is listed for sale with Dubois Yachts and Northrop and Johnson.
In addition, Trinity's Blind Date, which was awarded a Judges' Special Commendation on the night, is for sale through Peter Insull's Yacht Marketing and IYC.
