What sets the BOAT International World Superyacht Awards apart from every other boating awards event is simple: our panel of judges. The panel is made up of current or former yacht owners, bringing with them, collectively, hundreds of years of experience owning, running and managing superyachts.
The judges are not 'just' yacht owners, but knowledgeable, serial owners 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.
