Everything you need to know about the World Superyacht Awards 2017

20 March 2017

Now entering its twelfth year, the World Superyacht Awards honours the finest new superyacht builds delivered to their owners in 2016.

The image of the coveted Neptune trophy has become synonymous with excellence in superyacht build and design. The concept was simple; the god of the sea in Roman mythology should be centre stage in an event that reflects the beauty and power of the sea. These prestigious awards are now displayed on magnificent vessels all over the globe, a badge of distinction proudly worn by their owners.

Advice on how to impress the judges

There are some general guidelines that will help you impress the World Superyacht Awards judges:

  • Make sure you reach the competition rules and entry requirements, as well as the submission requirements for each category, and comply with them exactly
  • Prepare your documentation accurately and don't exceed the number of pages allowed
  • When supplying a statement, it's best to avoid sending a general press release and instead write something specific that satisfies the needs of the World Superyacht Awards category
  • Your photos should be high res and sent as jpeg files, not a pdf document containing all photos because these aren't high quality enough. Please don't send more photos than requested, otherwise only the correct number will be passed on to judges and they may not be the ones you might have selected
