Feadship, MB92 and Cantiere delle Marche were the winners at the Superyacht Investor Yard 2024 Awards. They received them at the Superyacht Investor London conference.

These unique awards are decided by the world’s leading yacht brokers and yacht financiers. The Superyacht Investor Awards are designed to help owners when deciding on both new builds and used yachts.

“There is an old saying that owners should put their yacht for sale the day they take delivery,” said Rob Hodgetts, editor, Superyacht Investor. “Like many old jokes, there is some truth in this. Owners are increasingly looking at depreciation and ease of resale when choosing yards and yachts. The Superyacht Investor Awards recognise yards that build or refit yachts that are most likely to retain value.”

Feadship scooped the award for Best Yard for Yacht Investment. The honour recognises the yard whose vessels best retain resale value according to leading yacht brokers and financiers. Feadship also won the overall Yard of the Year award, which rewarded attributes such as build quality, customer experience and sustainable innovation.

Giedo Loeff, head of research and development, received both trophies on behalf of Feadship.

The Barcelona-based MB92 Group won the honours for Best Yard for Refit, with Henk Dreijer, chief business development officer, accepting the trophy.

Italy’s Cantiere delle Marche from Ancona earned the award of Yard to Watch. It was collected by Vasco Buonpensiere, co-founder of the yard.

“To be voted for by the people who buy, sell and finance superyachts is powerful confirmation that you are not only setting the benchmark but pushing beyond it. We are delighted to honour these yards and look forward to building on these awards next year,” said Hodgetts.
