The prestigious World Yachts Trophies award for Best Layout adds to the bespoke yacht’s silverware in 2023, which includes the Judges’ Commendation for Displacement Motor Yachts Below 500 gt, 40 to 44.99 metres at the World Superyacht Awards in Istanbul, Turkey in May 2023.
The judges recognised the ingenuity and craftsmanship involved in ACE’S construction, commenting on the generous size and practicality of her well-laid-out deck spaces and interior design, created by Marco Bonelli and Marijana Radovic’s m2atelier.
Then, at the International Yacht and Aviation Awards 2023, ACE was voted Best Motor Yacht between 40 and 60 metres and Best Global Project 2023, receiving a standing ovation for its many unique attributes.
At the Elite Design et al Awards 2023, ACE won the Elite Yacht 2023 Award and was praised for both the “incredible harmony of form and the ferocity resulting from the firm lines of the silhouette that ultimately shape the intriguing musculature of the yacht” and its timeless style.
At 44.27 metres (145 feet) and 494 gt, and accommodating 10 guests in five staterooms, ACE is the largest superyacht out of the Conrad shipyard in Gdansk, and the largest superyacht to emerge from Poland.
The latest commendation, the Best Layout in the 30- to 50-metre category Award, presented at this year’s World Yachts Trophies, was received by representatives from Conrad Shipyard, M2 Atelier, Nicolai Yacht Consulting & Project Management and Luxury Charter Group, which acted as owner’s representative throughout the entire project.
Luxury Charter Group worked with their long-time charter client at several international yacht shows to introduce them to the leading yards before deciding on Conrad, and then liaised with Conrad during construction to create the ideal superyacht for their client.
Designed by Reymond Langton, with naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design and interiors by M2 Atelier, ACE boasts three expansive decks with four social spaces, including a sundeck with undercover lounge, dining, bar, sunpads, jacuzzi and 100-inch cinema screen.
Mikołaj Król, CEO at Conrad Shipyard was ecstatic with the latest accolade. “To win another award in this season for ACE is an incredible achievement for the Conrad Shipyard,” he said.
“This fantastic new flagship superyacht from the latest Conrad C144s ACE line has been justifiably recognised for its remarkably spacious interior and creative layout. This is the culmination of a great deal of hard work, talent and passion by the entire workforce.”
Under the exclusive management of Luxury Charter Group, ACE has been operating in charter since her launch in October 2022 and will be open for inspection by appointment (email: email@example.com) at the 2023 Monaco Yacht Show, located at berth: S04, Appointment Jules Soccal at the iconic Port Hercules.
