September 29, 2021

80m ARTEFACT won two of BOAT International’s 2021 World Superyacht Awards for best yacht in her class and the prized motor yacht of the year.

Monaco / Rendsburg, Germany – September 2021. Shortly before her debut at the 2021 Monaco Yacht Show, ARTEFACT has won two of Boat International’s annual World Superyacht Awards. She was awarded best largest displacement motor yacht in her hull class of 1,600 to 2,999GT and subsequently selected as the Motor Yacht of the Year.

ARTEFACT competed against a line-up of more than 50 yachts, winning the coveted awards as a result of her environmentally-friendly technologies coupled with a bold and innovative interior and exterior design. In the final vote, BOAT International reported that the judges were almost unanimous in choosing Artefact as the Motor
Yacht of the Year - a feat which we are exceptionally proud of and underlines incredible design, technology, and craft of the entire Nobiskrug team who were involved with the project.
Stewart Campbell, editor-in-chief, BOAT International, said: “The winners of the World Superyacht Awards this year encapsulate the best of the best with innovative design thinking and sustainable technology.”

These commendations are the latest in a string of wins for ARTEFACT, which has already won eight other awards: three of the 2021 Boat International Design and Innovation Awards, two of the 2021 International Yacht and Aviation Awards, two of the 2020 World Yachts Trophies for Best Layout and Green Yacht and Robb Report’s Best of The Best 2020.

We are exceptionally proud of the reputation that ARTEFACT has built as one of the world’s leading superyachts, designed not simply as an individual motor yacht but also as a platform to re-shape the world of yachting. Designed with cutting-edge and sustainable technology built into the very fabric of the vessel to promote cleaner seas and dramatically improve fuel efficiency, ARTEFACT’s latest awards confirms her status as one of the world’s most iconic superyachts.
