Delivered in 2017 by Cerri Cantieri Navali (CCN), the remarkable 50m ELSEA from the "Fuoriserie" range is shortlisted for the 2018 Boat International Design & Innovation Awards. Previously known as the ShowBoats Design Awards, the refreshed awards programme will acknowledge not only the naval architecture and styling, but also design aspects that represent innovation and engineering, and the increased product portfolio of technology. This nomination confirms the stunning entrance of ELSEA into the industry, surprising all her visitors and the experts. Nominated in the Best Interior Design Motor Yachts 400GT to 999GT category, the 50-metre superyacht ELSEA has been created by design firm Studio Bacigalupo, with interiors by Studio Vafiadis. Imperial acted as Owner’s Representative, Construction Supervisor and Manager during the build and post-delivery. Among her exclusive qualities: the interiors beautified by a touch of Lalique furniture, or her outstanding maximum speed of 28 knots and cruising speed of 18 knots, thanks to 3x 16V2000M94 MTU engines. This nomination is the second for ELSEA, having won the World Superyacht Trophies this September 2017, awarded for Revelation of the Year. The final result will be announced during the Boat International Design & Innovation Awards ceremony held on Sunday 28 January 2018 in Kitzbühel, Austria. Congratulations to Cerri Cantieri Navali on this achievement!
