MOTOR YACHT OF THE YEAR AWARD GOES TO DILBAR (156M)

Last Update: July 29th, 2018

It was a magic night when last Saturday (13th May) the World Superyacht Awards ceremony, organized by Boat International Media, took place in Florence in the palatial surroundings of the Palazzo Vecchio to celebrate the best of the best in Yachting today.

The jewel in the crown of the Yachting Awards is the “Motor Yacht of the Year Award” which recognizes the very best motor yacht delivered in 2016. It is selected from all of the award winners in the motor yacht categories by a panel of esteemed judges.

Lürssen’s superyacht Dilbar was named Motor Yacht of the Year 2017 after the judges were dazzled by her outstanding design.

“One of the most complex and challenging yachts to be built”, the judges described her “as the most spectacular yacht they had ever seen and a clear winner for this prestigious award.”

Dilbar also won in her category for “Displacement Motoryacht 3,000 GT and Above”. The rules of the event dictate that should only one yacht be entered in a class, this class is amalgamated with the most appropriate alternative.

Dilbar, being the only vessel to qualify for the ‘Displacement Yachts of above 3,000 GT’ class, was therefore placed in the class below. But when it came to judging, the judges decided that it was impossible to fairly decide a winner for this class when Dilbar was seven times larger in terms of Gross Tonnage (a measure of internal volume) than the next largest yacht!

The judges that visited Dilbar unanimously stated that Dilbar is the most spectacular yacht they have ever seen.
