Sailing yacht Vertigo named Best in Show at Monaco
by Malcolm MacLean
Tony Hambrook, CEO of Alloy Yachts, received the prestigious Prix du Design for the 67.2m sailing yacht Vertigo from HSH Prince Albert at the Monaco Yacht Show.
Designed by Philippe Briand and built by Alloy Yachts, she is the largest sailing yacht built in the Southern Hemisphere and, accommodating 12 guests, she provides the ultimate in luxury cruising.
The interiors, designed by the renowned French design-house Christian Liaigre, are one of her star attractions, sporting an ‘urban at sea’ ambience with sleek surfaces and a colour palette of walnut, cream and black.
Not only was Vertigo voted sailing yacht of the year at the 2012 World Superyacht Awards, she went on to scoop the award for best sailing yacht in the 40m+ range.
