BOAT International, one of the most important superyacht magazines, has assembled an extremely expert jury for the awards. Luca Giammattei, the project manager for the Y9, is already touched: "A nice confirmation of our work. I am happy for the team!" The exterior of the almost 30-metre-long "Bella" was designed by Bill Tripp while the interior was developed by the interior design team, lead by Francesca Modica, in cooperation with Norm Architects and Design Unlimited.

The awards will be presented at the beginning of February at the BOAT International Design Festival in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy. Stay tuned!
