The 2013 Miami Boat Show was a success by every measurement. With one of the largest displays at the show Princess showed that they are one of the premier boat builders in the world. Our Display was topped off with the NEW 40 Meter “Imperial Princess” that has won the prestige’s “World Super Yacht Awards 2013” in the “Three deck semi-displacement or planning motor yacht” category for 2013.
Combining a glittering awards ceremony with a gala dinner and dance, the World Superyacht Awards – dubbed the Oscars of the Superyacht world – are attended by an elite guest list of international Superyacht owners and the most influential players in the Superyacht industry. Each winner is presented with a coveted Neptune trophy, which has become synonymous with excellence in Superyacht build and design.
For Princess to have been selected as a finalist with what is their first ‘Superyacht’ build is an incredible achievement but then again, Imperial Princess is an incredible yacht. As Boat International so aptly summarized, ”Despite being the first foray into the arena of semi-custom Superyachts for the UK-based Princess Yachts International, the judges felt that this first yacht of a series had been designed and built to impressively high standards. They also admired her attractive exterior lines and her exterior and interior spaces, which were also well decorated and laid out to ensure an optimum division between the size of guest and crew areas. Princess collaborated with Bernard Olesinski on the exterior stylist; Olesinski also provided naval architecture, while Bannenberg & Rowell Design and Princess gave the first 40m Princess her interior design.”
