News eng   12 May 2015

Grace E, the 73m Picchiotti branded motor yacht created by the Perini Navi Group, was crowned Motor Yacht of the Year at the 10th edition of the Boat International World Superyacht Awards on Saturday 9th May in Amsterdam. The awards ceremony – known as the Oscars Night of the yachting world – recognized Grace E’s unique combination of distinctive lines, stunning Remi Tessier designed interiors, perfect execution of detail and outstanding quality.


The esteemed jury of passionate and experienced yacht owners has awarded Grace E with 2 awards:

• Displacement Motor Yacht of 1,300GT to 2,999GT of Below 75m, and the coveted

• Motor Yacht of the Year – from among the 9 category winning Motor Yachts

These awards are further recognition for Grace E and will adorn her Wall of Honour which already includes 4 prestigious Showboats Design Awards and the Baccarat Trophy awarded by the Monaco Yacht Show on the occasion of her debut in September 2014.

Following the success of her two predecessors, the multiple awarded-winning 50m Exuma and 55m Galileo G, Grace E builds on the same hull and superstructure design elements which characterize the Picchiotti Vitruvius® series. Her Philippe Briand hull design assures efficient and long range navigation with her unique propulsion characteristics, featuring an advanced new generation diesel / electric system with two Azipod fixed pitch propulsion units by ABB. The operational data collected on her initial voyages – including the transatlantic crossing – confirm major achievements in fuel and power consumption, efficiency and remarkable noise and vibration reduction.
