New Host Venue for World Superyacht Awards: Former Ottoman Palace in Istanbul, Turkey

In the past decade, Turkey has become a leader in the yachting industry, evidenced by the presence of numerous prominent superyacht shipbuilders, superbly constructed and equipped marinas with adjacent upscale resort and retail amenities and state-of-the-art dockage facilities. Perhaps for these reasons, along with economic incentives and a desirable climate, next year’s World Superyacht Awards is relocating from London to Istanbul.

The annual World Superyacht Awards, held in London for the last three years, are moving to Istanbul, Turkey. Next year’s event will be held on May 5 in Çiragan Palace Kempinski, a former Ottoman palace situated on the European shores of the Bosphorus.

Nominated yachts include the 70.5m (231ft) Talisman C, built by Proteksan Turquoise, the 63m (207ft) Feadship Lady Britt, the 50m (164ft) Satori by Heesen Yachts and the 44.2m (145ft) Pendennis-built Hemisphere.

The basic requirement for the awards is that the nominated yacht must be of over 30m (98ft) in length and have been completed and delivered to its owner between January 1st and December 31st, 2011.
