Displacement Motor Yacht of 1,300GT to 2,999GT of 75m and Above: Kismet

World Superyacht Awards 2015 winners

Award sponsored by Holland Jachtbouw

This was perhaps the most difficult class for the judges to decide as they agreed that all of the yachts were highly attractive, having been built to the most demanding standards with little regard to cost, while their differences largely resulted from their owners’ specific requirements.

The judges considered that every aspect of all four yachts was well thought out and this was demonstrated by the fact that every yacht was singled out as the winner by at least one judge. But each jury member awards marks to every yacht and this means that their second, third and fourth choices are also important in determining the overall result.

When the results of the secret ballot were announced it was 95.2 metre Lürssen yacht Kismet that narrowly headed the scoreboard. This yacht, they felt, is a true all-rounder combining impeccable construction, with appealing exterior design, great deck areas, and a tasteful interior that suits a wide audience.

Builder:Lürssen Yachts
Naval Architect: Lürssen Yachts
Exterior Design:Espen Øino International
Interior Design:Reymond Langton
