Winners of the World Yachts Trophies 2019
After days of deliberation by our jury, and often very close results, here is the list, long-awaited by industry professionals and owners, of the various winners of the 2019 edition.
Yachts on the test bench
ON BOARD – Ferretti 720
Under the signature of a new designer, this Ferretti 720 remains a magnificent ambassador of the brand with a timeless class and an unsurpassed level of manufacture. With 33 knots top speed, and no vibration, shaft line propulsion still has a bright future.
ON BOARD – Absolute Navetta 68
The Navetta is a speciality of the Absolute shipyard which remains faithful to an IPS pod propulsion on this new boat, which offers good living space and comfort at sea. The decoration is successful too with transparent surfaces galore.
ON BOARD – Sirena 88
The flagship of Turkish builder Sirena yachts is the result of a perfect association between two very famous yachting names: Germán Frers for naval architecture and exterior plus Cor D Rover for interior and decoration. Result: an extraordinary volume for a unit of this size with optimized performance.
ON BOARD – Bluegame BGX 70
The Italian builder Bluegame, which merged with the Sanlorenzo group in 2008, is definitely not doing things like the crowd. The BGX 70, which incorporates some of the principles of the SX series developed by Sanlorenzo, is a completely new and revolutionary concept.
PRESTIGE : Pershing 140
Designed and built entirely of aluminium at CRN in Ancona, the largest yacht launched by Pershing combines all the cliché superlatives with an exterior that is as spectacular as ever from the brand’s faithful designer Fulvio De Simoni. Powered by four MTU engines of 2,638 horsepower each, the machine approaches 40 knots at full throttle.
