10 May 2023 • Written by Sophia Wilson

Excitement is building ahead of the 18th edition of the World Superyacht Awards, which will take place in Istanbul, Turkey next weekend (19 to 20 May). Held in association with AKYACHT, the awards celebrate the most outstanding superyachts from the past year.

This year, the event will return to the cosmopolitan city of Istanbul for a two-day programme, including welcome cocktails on the first evening, with the gala dinner and awards ceremony held the following day. The World Superyacht Awards will culminate with the AKYACHT after party where winners of a prestigious Neptune will be able to celebrate their success.

The World Superyacht Awards are unique as they are judged by a panel of current and former superyacht owners. In total, there are 10 categories, which include Best Refitted and Rebuilt Yachts, as well as awards for Motor Yacht of the Year and Sailing Yacht of the Year. With 2023 nominees from shipyards around the world – including Turkey, Poland, Italy and the UAE – and many notable new launches from the past 12 months, this year’s awards are set to be highly competitive.

There are still a handful of tickets available to attend in person. The final tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and those associated with the nominated yachts will be prioritised.
