The International Superyacht Society said nominations for its 24th annual awards for design and leadership are under way.

The ISS Design Awards, which celebrate achievement in superyacht design and style, are for custom yachts 79 feet and larger that were completed between May 1, 2013, and April 30 of this year and refits that have had extensive work that comprehensively changed the vessel esoterically.

Nominations are also open for individuals and companies for ISS’s Awards of Distinction, which celebrate personal triumph ranging from crew to the corporate office and for ocean stewardship.

The awards will be presented during the annual gala at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which is scheduled for Oct. 30-Nov. 3.
