World Super yacht Awards 2014
At WRS Tech we do love cooing over the world Superyachts and we especially enjoy it if we have involvement with a client or candidate who has contributed to the design or construction of one of these vessels.
The World Superyacht Awards honour the finest new Superyacht builds delivered to their owners in the past twelve months, WRSTech has been involved in more then a couple of the yachts on finalist list.
The World Superyacht Awards are selected in consultation with yacht builders and naval architects, a number of yacht award categories has been established so that yachts can be judged against other vessels of a similar size and type.
There are four awards for displacement motor yachts (those vessels that always displace their own weight of water), and three awards for semi-displacement motor yachts that at higher speeds displace less than their weight of water, operating in ‘planing’ mode. This distinction is made because these two types of yachts call for very different construction philosophies, the latter type being much more lightly-built. Two further awards are reserved for sailing yachts, and one award for yachts that have been given major refits that finished in the qualifying year. Finally, there are two awards for the motor yacht and sailing yacht that are considered by the judges to be the most notable in the qualifying year.
In the office we are divided over our personal dream vessel but we wish all those involved the best of luck in the competition.
