Previous winners include Azimut-Benetti, Sunseeker, Ferretti and MCY.

“The Boat Builder Awards are amongst the most important recognitions in the industry, and Monte Carlo Yachts has been proud and thrilled for being awarded with this top honor. … The Boat Builder Award recognition proves that our yachts combine aesthetic and functional qualities, technical reliability and an efficient and innovative production environment rarely seen in the industry," Monte Carlo Yachts marketing and communications manager Federico Peruccio said in a statement.

The judging of the awards will be based on nominations submitted via Boatbuilderawards.com, which will then be deliberated by a soon-to-be-announced international panel of judges.
