ACREW is proud to open the nominations for the 2019 Crew Awards. Based on last year’s overwhelming response from the yachting industry, more than 300 nominees representing approximately 150 superyachts are expected in this year’s nomination round.
The Crew Awards ceremony will take place on 12th October in Nice, France and will be a night to remember with 500 Captains and Crew from around the globe celebrating the best in the business.
The evening will consist of a champagne reception, a three-course dinner of French cuisine and a soiree, celebrating crew members for their excellence onboard. The ceremony will end with an After Party sponsored by Liquid Yacht Wear.
The stage for ACREW’s international Crew Awards will be the prestigious Palais de la Méditerranée in Nice. This iconic 5 Star Luxury Hyatt commands a prominent position on the Promenade des Anglais across from Lido beach and glittering waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Behind its 1920 façade sits a splendid five-star hotel with flawless decadence and an air of something extra special - the pinnacle of French elegance on the Riviera.
