Judges convene in Trieste, Italy to determine the 2015 Winners

Judges convene in Trieste, Italy to determine the 2015 Winners

Last week, in the historic city of Trieste, the judges of the World Superyacht Awards 2015 met to decide the winners of the industry's most coveted prizes - the iconic Neptune awards.

The Judges’ Meeting is the culmination of a year-long judging process. Over the past twelve months, an independent jury comprised of 18 yacht owners and two industry professionals have travelled the globe to make personal visits to the finalist yachts in competition.

In addition to these visits, the judges each receive a hefty dossier containing over 400 pages of detailed information: photographs; statements from owners; designers and builders; as well as specifications and drawings of the finalists.

During the Judges’ Meeting, hosted at the Trieste Chamber of Commerce, the Chairman presented the finalists in each category and encouraged round-table discussion and deliberation amongst the panel.

Not only is the judging process a time-consuming and detailed procedure, but one that is carried out with extreme diligence by a knowledgeable and experienced jury to ensure a fair result. Following such a thorough process, there is no question that the 2015 winners can be extremely proud of their Neptunes, which have become synonymous with excellence in superyacht build and design.

Attending the World Superyacht Awards 2015

The winners of the 2015 Awards will be revealed in front of an international audience of yacht owners and the most influential players in the superyacht industry at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam on Saturday 9 May.

Plus, news just announced! This year’s special tenth anniversary edition will open with spectacular, award-winning musical and theatrical entertainment - incorporating some incredible acrobatic acts fresh from a sell-out world tour.

In addition to the gala dinner and prize giving, guests are encouraged to extend their stay in Amsterdam and enjoy a full weekend programme of social events including the opportunity to celebrate this year's finalists' at the beautiful West-Indisch Huis, held in honour of the owners, builders and designers responsible for the shortlisted yachts, and inspiring shipyard tours hosted by the Event Partners.

Don’t miss out on your opportunity to attend and be sure to make your table applications promptly via the event website to avoid disappointment.

All table applications are subject to approval and priority will be given to superyacht owners and the teams involved with the finalist yachts.

The World Superyacht Awards return to Amsterdam in 2015 with the continued support of a collection of the world's leading shipyards – Amels, Feadship, Heesen Yachts, Holland Jachtbouw and Royal Huisman and our Global Aviation Partner Embraer Executive Jets.
