Jan 19th 12

Finalists for the 2012 World Superyacht Awards have been unveiled. After sifting through the exceptional nominees, Boat International Media’s top-notch team whittled down the contenders who now will be examined by an expert panel of judges in March to decide who will take home a coveted Neptune trophy on May 5, 2012, at the gala event, which this year will be held in Istanbul, Turkey. 
 
The 2012 finalist list is a comprehensive mingling of both sail and motor yachts delivered in 2011.
