Joy: Best Exterior Design & Styling -- Motor Yacht above 48 meters (157ft) – Boasting a glass-walled gym and hang-out space large enough for a basketball court, Feadship's Joy was compared by one judge to a "block of snow and ice that has been shaped by the wind."
Genesi: Best Exterior Design & Styling -- Motor Yacht below 48m (157ft) – Judges praised the clean lines and smooth surfaces of Genesi, designed by Fulvio de Simoni. But it was the 90m2 beach club -- the largest in a motor yacht below 48m -- that wowed them. It includes a 7m (22ft) floodable tender that becomes a swimming pool when the tender is deployed. Genesi also picked up the prize for the most innovative motor yacht, thanks to her hybrid propulsion system which eliminates the traditional engine room.
My Song: Most Innovative -- Sailing Yacht – Built for use in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, My Song's designers aimed to make the vessel's proportions so balanced that it would be impossible to judge its length (almost 130ft) from a distance.
AQuiJo: Best Naval Architecture -- Sailing Yacht – Created to circumnavigate the globe, 282ft AQuiJo was described by the judges as "an amazing piece of work." Featuring a deck jacuzzi, she can be chartered in low season for about $431,500 a week.
Galactica Super Nova: Best Naval Architecture -- Displacement Motor Yacht – The groundbreaking open staircase aboard Galactica Super Nova floats off a lighted support column and surrounds a glass elevator, giving the impression of defying gravity. The vessel, designed by Heesen Yachts, was also granted the Judge's Special Award.
Sexy Fish: Best Interior Layout & Design -- Motor Yacht below 500GT – The 129ft custom motor yacht Sexy Fish was built by Tansu at their Istanbul shipyard in Turkey.
Cloudbreak: Best Interior Layout & Design -- Motor Yacht above 500GT – Judges were impressed by interior designer Christian Liaigre's use of angled walls, strip lighting and a dramatic stair column. Cloudbreak also boasts a fireplace, allowing guests to warm up after skiing or diving.
