2012's Best Superyacht Builds Awarded

by Lorys Charalambous,, Cyprus

03 June 2013

The top accolades at the eighth annual World Superyacht Awards, held in Instanbul in May, were won by New Zealand's Alloy Yachts, the Netherlands' Royal Huisman, and Britain's Delta Marine.

Motor Yacht of the Year was awarded to the 47 meter Loretta Anne, custom built for an experienced second-time client of Alloy Yachts, and designed by Dubois Naval Architects. Alloy Yachts has a history of scooping awards for its builds. Alloy's Vertigo received the Prix du Design at the 2012 Monaco Yacht Show - then its sixth gong, and more recently, in October 2012, in Fort Lauderdale the yacht won the ISS Award for Best Sailing Yacht.

Sailing Yacht of the Year at the Instanbul ceremony went to 37.33m Pumula, built by Royal Huisman, delivered in Spring 2012.

The Voyager's Award, presented to a vessel that, in the opinion of the judges, completed the most inspirational cruise during the qualifying year, was presented the owners of the 37.8m expedition yacht Marama. In the summer of last year she cruised northwards from Seattle to Glacier Bay, Alaska in a three-month 3,200nm voyage.

The thoroughness with which the coastline was explored, the experiences enjoyed along the way, and the manner in which the cruise was documented with technically-demanding photographs and video, was said to have immediately captured the hearts of the judges.
