'The fact that The International Yacht & Aviation Awards caters for both the marine and aviation sectors, is particularly relevant I think, as the synergy between the two is growing closer and closer year by year.'

Rupert Rainsford Mann, Rainsford Mann Design

'The independence of The International Yacht & Aviation Awards means the designer is awarded upon objective criteria only. The impact will therefore be bigger and more positive. The selection has to focus on a project rather than on designers.'

Jacques Pierrejean, Pierrejean Design

'The Design Awards are important because they provide a forum for presentation and discussion of our work.'

Luiz de Basto, Luiz de Basto Designs

'The awards certainly are another feather in your hat if you get one --or maybe the first- -and it is interesting to see new designers getting recognition.'

'Being judged and awarded for something you are passionate about provides additional justification for the efforts and achievements made. It provides a sense of greater satisfaction and pride for oneself, and all those involved in the creation.'


'Design awards are very important for all designers. If a designer can really give
something good to the yachting world, design awards can help him to find more clients and vice-versa.'

Mario Grasso, Navirex
