Luxury Explorer yacht Big Fish by Aquos Yachts wins 2 more prestigious yachting awards

Superyacht BIG FISH is an expedition (explorer) type steel displacement luxury motor yacht 45m (147′ 7″) in length which was designed by Greg Marshall Design and launched by McMullen & Wing New Zealand in 2010. Powerfully styled, expedition motor yacht MY BIG FISH is a fantastic example of modern blue water stable, functional and comfortable exploration superyacht design and build. She is available for select charters in the South Pacific, Tahiti, Antarctica, Northern Europe and elsewhere.

The first new honor bestowed on the charter yacht Big Fish was a Neptune Award for Best Naval Architecture of all 2010-launched motor yachts. The award was presented Tuesday evening, Oct. 25th at the ShowBoats International Design Awards ceremony, held at the glamorous Mar A Lago resort in Palm Beach. The ShowBoats Design Awards is the longest-running awards program in the luxury yacht industry. These awards are judged by a select panel of industry experts and yacht owners based on a list of nominees presented to the judges by the editors of ShowBoats International.

The second award given to the Big Fish yacht was top honors for the Best Full Displacement motor yacht in the 40 to 60 meter size range, at the SuperYacht Awards. Presented at the annual International Superyacht Society gala Oct. 28th at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort, the SuperYacht Awards are selected by a panel of industry experts, and then are voted on by the entire membership of the Society.

In both prizes, the charter yacht Big Fish beat out a large number of other worthy contenders launched last year at many of the industry’s premier yacht builders.
