For 21 years the International Superyacht Society has celebrated the world’s best in naval architecture, design, interiors, engineering and builds. These are the Oscars of the Superyacht Industry as these awards are voted on by members who are all Yachting Professionals, Suppliers to the yachting industry, Brokers, Designers and Shipbuilders.
The categories are split into Sail: 24m-40m and 40m + and in the Power: 24m-40m, 40m-65m and 65m+. Finalists are judged for their external appearance, internal design, innovation and practicality by a distinguished and independent international panel.
At the Annual 2011 International Superyacht Society Awards for Design and Leadership Gala Dinner at the Marriott Harbour Beach Resort in Ft Lauderdale, S/Y Aegir and her RYD design team were awarded the prestigious ISS Best Sailing Yacht Design Award: 24m-40m. In addition to the Naval Architecture, RYD was also recognised for the Interior Design and Styling which was all completed in-house.
We thank Brian Benjamin, the owner of Aegir for providing us with our first Superyacht commission, our fantastic team at RYD, Carbon Ocean Yachts the builders and of course the long list of suppliers who made this possible. You have all made us very proud indeed and have helped to make RYD’s 21st anniversary year extraordinary. Thank you!
