BOAT International is delighted to announce that this year’s World Superyacht Awards will return to Venice, Italy. Nicknamed “the Oscars of the superyacht industry”, the 19th edition of the awards will be held in the Floating City on 3-4 May 2024.
The event’s return to Italy has coincided with a new headline sponsor for the World Superyacht Awards – Acquera Club. Part of the Acquera Group, which is headquartered in Venice, the Acquera Club offers a dedicated travel and lifestyle management service for yacht owners and charterers.
The Acquera Club sits alongside Acquera Yachting, a global yacht agency that covers the entire Mediterranean. It offers a complete portfolio of services including berth reservation, provisioning, clearance procedures, bunkering and concierge.
“We are delighted to be returning to the beautiful city of Venice, where the inaugural World Superyacht Awards were hosted in 2006,” said BOAT International's CEO Toby Moore. “We are thrilled to be partnered with Acquera Club in its home city and we are looking forward to welcoming owners, leading designers and builders for a spectacular weekend of celebrations.”
Stefano Tositti, founder and CEO of Acquera Club, added that he was "delighted to unveil the marvels of Venice" to the attendees of the World Superyacht Awards.
"With more than two decades spent in the yachting industry, we have honed our expertise in delivering exceptional service and exceeding expectations," he added. “As we eagerly anticipate the upcoming World Superyacht Awards, we extend a warm invitation to join us in our city. As local experts, we are thrilled to showcase the wonders of Venice and provide an unforgettable experience."
The World Superyacht Awards celebrate the most remarkable superyachts from the past year. An independent panel of current and former superyacht owners decides who gets to take home a prestigious Neptune trophy.
Nominations for the World Superyacht Awards 2024 are now closed.
