The World Superyacht Awards named Emocean the winner

Hydro Tec received three nominations and one award at the World Superyacht Awards.

The committee opted to award the RSY38m EXP, Emocean in the wonderful ambiance of London’s Guidhall, validating the success of this fresh new series, developed and engineered by Hydro Tec.

The owners wanted a motoryacht with the convenience, versatility, and seafaring qualities and range of a true Explorer, a hybrid combining a luxury yacht that respects the environment and is compatible with the modern lifestyle of a young couple and their family with a pocket-size ship that can handle long voyages and spend long periods of time out of port.

The Darwin 115, built by Cantiere delle Marche with Hydro Tec’s exterior design and naval architecture, was also a finalist in the category World best displacement motor yacht 499GT and below, from 30m to 44.9m.

The Darwin 115 is part of the well-known Darwin Series, with Hydro Tec’s exterior design and naval architecture, and is designed to sail thousands of miles every year. It has a highly durable hull, a range of 5,000 miles, and a capacity of 55400 litres of diesel fuel.

The Columbus Sport 50 meters M/Y K2, a nominee in the World’s Best Semi-Displacement or Planing Motor Yachts category, 40 meters and above, is the result of Palumbo Superyachts’ naval engineering collaboration with Hydro Tec.

The Columbus Sport 50 meters represents a one-of-a-kind yacht on the market, capable of sailing in shallow waters, with an aluminum hull and superstructure, a gross tonnage of 499, and a maximum draft of 2.2 m.

For the second year in a row, Hydro Tec reinforces its success by winning another Neptune in the same category, following the victory of Aurelia in 2021, the first Flexplorer manufactured by Cantiere delle Marche.
