Sunseeker represented at World Superyacht Awards, Amsterdam

During the month of May, representatives from Sunseeker International and Sunseeker London were specially invited to attend The World Superyacht Awards hosted by Boat International Media in Amsterdam, Holland.

The World Superyacht Awards are the most coveted trophies in yachting – known in the industry as the ‘Oscars of the superyacht world’ and the gala evening is the premier event in the superyacht industry. The event recognises the top yachts delivered in the previous year, with an exquisite dinner and a full social programme including behind the scenes tours of leading Dutch shipyards.
