Greek Nominations in Yachting Awards
The THE WORLD SUPERYACHT AWARDS 2020 NOMINEES REVEALED by BOAT INTERNATIONAL
Interesting for the demanding 50m+ design and refit market, is that some well reputed Greek companies are amongst the nominees for this year,
- mr. Dafnias’ Alpha Marine with the 80m Elements, in Displacements Motor Yachts of 2,000GT and above,
- mr. Tsokris’ Navinco with the 64m Magna Grecia, in Rebuild Yacht, and, in the same category,
- the 50m m/y Jaz, a project carried out by Golden Yachts and Studio Vafiadis
All yachts nominated for the World Superyacht Awards 2020 must be at least 30 metres long (LOA). Yachts entered for the ‘new yacht’ classes must have been completed and delivered to their owners between January 1 and December 31, 2019.
The categories have been established in consultation with yacht builders and naval architects to allow yachts to be fairly judged against other vessels of a similar size and type. There are categories for displacement motor yachts, semi-displacement and planing motor yachts and sailing yachts. This distinction is made because these various types of yacht call for very different design and construction philosophies.
A further three categories are reserved for yachts that have been given major refits, have been completely rebuilt or converted and that were finished within the qualifying year.
