The judges said selecting a winner from among the world’s largest and most luxurious yachts is always a notoriously difficult duty for the judges, given that they do not consider the individual tastes of owners, but focus their deliberations on quality, practicality, functionality and innovation. This year’s task was no exception. This class contained some exceptional yachts and while the ballot revealed extremely close scores, it showed Lady S, built by Feadship’s Royal Van Lent yard, with its elegant exterior design by Michael Leach and interiors by Reymond Langton, as the clear winner.
First, it was the elegance and harmony of her exterior lines that attracted the judges, whose gaze was then drawn past the decks’ practical features and luxurious furniture to the innovative layout that featured fire-pits on two levels, the largest sliding glass doors seen on any yacht, and a fully-certified helipad deck isolated from the bridge deck by a walkway. This, according to her builders, was the most detailed and complex exterior they had built to date in view of its radical shapes and complex engineering.
In the interior, the judges admired the huge windows and cool elegance of the owner and guest areas, and were fascinated by the boat’s many special features. These included a large gym on the bridge deck with expansive 180-degree views and a stunning beach club, as well as the only Dolby 3D IMAX cinema ever installed on a superyacht. This, the judges agreed, was a very special yacht.
