Design Awards for Lady Fleur
We know we’ve created something special with the X-treme 105 Lady Fleur but entering her for one of the top superyacht prizes was a new step for our yard. Could we possibly win one of the esteemed BOAT Design & Innovation Awards in Italy on 8 February? The answer was ‘yes we could’… And ‘yes we could’ again, as Lady Fleur became the only superyacht to win not one but two of the famous Neptune trophies!
The winners of the 2023 BOAT Design & Innovation Awards were crowned on the opening night of the Superyacht Design Festival at a glittering ceremony in Cortina. It’s a little like the Oscars of the yachting world as the awards are chosen by professionals from across the industry. As judging panel co-chair and renowned editor Marilyn Mower said: “It’s a privilege to delve into the details and decisions that go into developing yachts that will no doubt set trends and expectations for yachts that follow.”
You can imagine how thrilled we were then when Lady Fleur won both the Outstanding Exterior Design category for yachts between 24m to 39.9m and Innovation of the Year for her tender platform/swimming pool. “This is a huge achievement not only for our team at the shipyard but also for the owner Jan Vink, the designer Bernd Weel and the architects at Diana Yacht Design who together created this stunning yacht,” says Holterman Yachts’ general director Herman Timmerman. “Lady Fleur is a textbook example of how a small team can create a great yacht!”
What did the experts have to say about Lady Fleur? “With many finalists re-imagining onboard spaces, the X-treme 105 was praised for the way the yacht fulfilled a complex owner’s brief – fitting a massive tender and family pool onto a single deck while maintaining an attractive yacht profile.” Read more from the judges’ report as this story continues on our website.
