A celebration of superyacht design in Palm Beach, Florida
As the superyacht industry has grown and developed over the years, we feel the yachts and the designers and craftsmen behind their construction deserve to be recognised specifically in the areas of interior design, styling, innovation and technology.
The ShowBoats Design Awards will adopt the individual design awards formerly presented at the World Superyacht Awards. A number of new categories will also be added to recognise and acknowledge, for the first time ever, the industry’s talents specific to craft and design. Roger Lean-Vercoe will act as Chairman of the Judges, a neutral panel of experienced and passionate yacht owners, project managers, designers and craftsmen from a variety of backgrounds within the world of design.
Nominations for the ShowBoats Design Awards 2010 are now open and submissions are welcome up until the closing date of 15 April. Boat International Media's team of editors will review these nominations and refine this list to a group of outstanding finalists to be judged by the independent panel at the Judges Day in Monaco in June.
The Breakers Hotel and Resort in Palm Beach will be this year’s venue for the Superyacht Design Symposium, held prior to the ShowBoats Design Awards and in the run up to the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show. We are certain that this relocation from New York will encourage more superyacht owners than ever to participate as both speakers and delegates in sharing their passion for yachts and yacht design.
An exciting two day programme of lively presentation and in-depth discussions will be interspersed by elegant social events and plentiful networking opportunities. We invite superyacht owners to share and compare concepts and experiences with their peers in a professional environment, providing a platform for them to present personal projects for the first time ever to a wider audience.
To take full advantage of the networking opportunities these events present, apply early for special rates and packages including accommodation at the Breakers Hotel and Resort.
