Last Saturday evening saw Amsterdam play host to the World Superyacht Awards. Yards, designers and owners from around the globe gathered to hear which superyachts would win the coveted Neptune trophies. And we were delighted when the Feadship Como was announced at the winner of the ‘Semi-displacement or Planing Two-deck Motor Yacht of 38m and Above’ category. This prestigious prize follows hard on the heels of previous awards for Como, which included the Baccarat SuperYachtWorld Trophy for her owner Neville Crichton, two International Superyacht Design Awards, and no less than three ShowBoats Design Awards.
Feadship CEO Henk de Vries had this to say to the audience in Amsterdam: “Never before has Feadship received so many awards for a single yacht. We are always very proud when our efforts are recognised and awarded, but this is an amazing achievement on behalf of Como! It must have something to do with the winning spirit that resulted from Neville Crichton's vision to combine the brilliance of Ed Dubois, RWD and Feadship. A bow to the judges and a big thank you to the owner.”
Congratulations are also very much due to Lord Laidlaw, owner of the Feadship Lady Christine, who received the Legacy Award during this glittering gala in Amsterdam. Watch the video below to capture a flavour of the evening.
