15 November 2023 • Written by Lucy Dunn

The World Superyacht Awards, in association with Acquera Club and The Glenrothes, is a highlight of the yachting calendar and brings together superyacht owners, builders, designers and other industry experts. Celebrating the most outstanding superyachts from the past year, a number of coveted Neptune trophies will be awarded at this year’s gala ceremony. Nominations for the World Superyacht Awards 2024 are now closed.


When and where are the World Superyacht Awards?

A number of cities have played host to the World Superyacht Awards in its impressive history, including Amsterdam, Monaco, Florence, London and, most recently, Istanbul. But, this year the ceremony will return to the beautiful city of Venice, Italy, where the inaugural World Superyacht Awards were hosted in 2006.

The World Superyacht Awards weekend will take place on 3-4 May 2024.

What is the event programme?

The festivities will begin with welcome drinks and canapés on Friday night, followed by the black-tie awards ceremony and gala dinner the following evening. The award-winning superyachts will be announced during the prize-giving ceremony, where the winning owners, designers and builders will be presented with their Neptune trophies. Celebrations will continue at the World Superyacht Awards after-party.

More details will be available soon. For more information, please contact the events team.

How do I buy tickets for the World Superyacht Awards?

Limited tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis and those associated with the nominated yachts will be prioritised. All tickets will go through an approval process by BOAT International. Terms and conditions apply.


What are the travel and accommodation options?

The 2024 edition welcomes a new headline sponsor, Acquera Club. Part of the Venice-headquartered Acquera Group, the Acquera Club is powered by Knightsbridge Circle and offers a dedicated travel and lifestyle management service for yacht owners and charterers.

As local experts, the Acquera Club is on hand to help assist with all your travel arrangements. As May 2024 is an extremely busy period, we encourage you to book hotels and transfers early to avoid disappointment. Upon registration, guests will receive a welcome booklet with next steps.

Who are the judges for the World Superyacht Awards?

The World Superyacht Awards is a globally acclaimed event, known for its credibility, prestige and glamour, and is distinguished from all other yacht awards thanks to an independent panel of current and former superyacht owners. Bringing hundreds of years of experience collectively, the judges are knowledgeable and experienced superyacht enthusiasts who have taken a keen interest in the design and build of their own vessels. It is their personal interest that drives the judging process and we owe the judges an enormous debt for their enthusiasm and generosity.
