Super Achievers

Each year the International Superyacht Society (ISS) bestows design awards on a handful of yachts, noting them for achievement in engineering, style, and performance. The finalists for this year's competition were announced earlier today, and judging from the list below, there's going to be a tough battle.

Without further ado, the nominees are:

BEST POWER, 23 to 32 meters:
Royal Denship's 85 Flybridge
Azzura Yachts' Cambria II
Moonen's Far Niente
Bloemsma & Van Breemen's Griffoen
Danish Yacht's Moon Goddess

BEST POWER, 32 to 43 meters:
Royal Huisman's Arcadia
Broward 120
JFA Shipyard's Bystander
Alloy's Como
Moonen's My Issue

BEST POWER, 43 meters +:
Feadship's April Fool
Alstom's Kogo
Lurssen's Oasis
Nobiskrug's Triple Seven
Royal Denship's Turmoil

The winner in each category will be announced on October 25. In the meantime, let the guessing games begin. Who do you think will win? Who do you want to win? (Sometimes they're not one in the same, after all.)
