In just under a month, the World Superyacht Awards hosted by Boat International Media will attract the most influential players in the superyacht industry to Florence in Italy to honour the finest new superyacht builds delivered in the past 12 months.
The esteemed judges met in Milan earlier in the year, in cooperation with the Montenapoleone Association, hosted by the Excelsior Hotel Gallia, to select the final entries and eventual winners of the 2017 Awards.
