Madame Gu, an incredible 325-foot custom megayacht from Feadship that ranks as the largest yacht ever built in the Netherlands, just took home top honors at the World Superyacht Awards in Amsterdam. Organized by Boat International, the global yacht brokerage and media conglomerate, the ninth annual edition of the awards given to the world’s best and most exclusive superyachts launched in 2013 attracted industry greats and wealthy yachtsmen from around the globe.

Madame Gu, which had been codenamed Project Dream, boasts bespoke features such as a fully enclosed helicopter hangar, Superyacht Times reports. Its owner is reported to be Russian oligarch Andrei Skoch, one of the world’s richest men — though he has denied the claim. The yacht is much larger than Musashi, the next biggest Feadship built in 2010 for Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison.

The award for Sailing Yacht of the Year went to the super-stylish 107-foot Inukshuk built by Finland’s Baltic Yachts, which is available for charter at about $75,000 per week from Fraser. The award in the largest displacement category went to another astonishing Feadship, the 203.5-foot Sea Owl, which has a Peter Pan-inspired interior design scheme and one of the most elaborate security systems ever installed on a yacht. In the three-deck yacht class of 45m and above, the 213-foot Heesen-built Galactica Star was hands-down the winner with its super-sexy sweeping hull design which can do up to 28.8 knots.

The biggest, most innovative and luxurious superyachts from across the world have been revealed.

They are the winners of the Boat International Media's World Superyacht Awards 2018, with 96.55m Faith - a £148million vessel complete with spa pool and pizza oven - scooping the highly coveted Motor Yacht of the Year award.

Other vessels that were recognised at an awards ceremony held in Florence, range from some of the most complex and challenging vessels ever built to magnificent explorer yachts.

Commenting on the winners, Chris Downham, chief executive officer at Boat International Media, said: 'The World Superyacht Awards celebrate the extraordinary creations of the superyacht industry. We’re very proud that this platform celebrates truly exceptional yacht owners, shipyards and designers from around the globe.

'On behalf of the team at Boat International, we’d like to offer heart-felt congratulations to this year’s winners. Everyone involved should be immensely proud of their achievements and enjoy their success.'

For a taste of sailing on the high seas in ultimate luxury, scroll down to view the multi-million pound boats that picked up the gongs this year.

Pictured is the overall winner Faith, a $200million (£148million) vessel complete with spa pool and pizza oven. The yacht won in the category of Displacement Motor Yachts 2,000GT and Above and Motor Yacht of the Year. Boat International Media said: 'Not only did her owner expect new standards in design and construction to create an aesthetically pleasing vessel, but also in novel glass technology. The nine-metre long and 2.5-metre deep swimming pool on the main deck aft, for example, has a 68mm curved glass bottom, constructed by laminating five layers of glass interspersed by a clear foil. Many other features also attracted the judges’ eyes, including the three-metre high skylight dome in the master stateroom, and a wood-burning pizza oven on the top deck – a seemingly simple installation but one that required advanced design to clean soot and other particles from its smoke'

When it comes to sailing yachts, one particular vessel shone above the rest, picking up two highly coveted awards. Baltic Yachts’ 53.9m Pink Gin, a carbon fibre, high-performance, global cruising yacht, was the worthy winner in both the Sailing Yachts 50m and Above and Sailing Yacht of the Year categories. The technological advances across her hull and rig and her power-assisted 'force feedback steering' system are what sealed her place as winner in both categories

Hans Georg Näder, the owner of Pink Gin, apparently 'prioritised exuberant style and supreme comfort' when building the yacht

In this year’s new Sail-Assisted Motor Yachts category, Sailing Yacht A was named the winner. Sailing Yacht A is a 142.8m yacht built by Nobiskrug in Germany with interior and exterior design by Philippe Starck. The owner ensured that Sailing Yacht A would be one of the most advanced superyachts on the water. With her attributes in both motor and sailing, Sailing Yacht A was chosen as the winner because of her abilities in both fields and her environmentally-friendly innovations

Another victor was the 32.6m sailing yacht Ribelle, which was awarded the trophy for Sailing Yachts 30m to 49.9m. Class winner of last year’s Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, Ribelle was deemed the perfect modern mix of 'luxurious cruiser and thoroughbred racer'

Stand-out features of the Ribelle yacht include a glass-topped saloon that provides natural light and a modern interior design, by Rémi Tessier, alongside exterior design by Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design

Other vessels that were recognised at an awards ceremony held in Florence, range from some of the most complex and challenging vessels ever built to magnificent explorer yachts.

Commenting on the winners, Chris Downham, chief executive officer at Boat International Media, said: 'The World Superyacht Awards celebrate the extraordinary creations of the superyacht industry. We’re very proud that this platform celebrates truly exceptional yacht owners, shipyards and designers from around the globe.

'On behalf of the team at Boat International, we’d like to offer heart-felt congratulations to this year’s winners. Everyone involved should be immensely proud of their achievements and enjoy their success.'

Pictured is the overall winner Faith, a $200million (£148million) vessel complete with spa pool and pizza oven. The yacht won in the category of Displacement Motor Yachts 2,000GT and Above and Motor Yacht of the Year. Boat International Media said: 'Not only did her owner expect new standards in design and construction to create an aesthetically pleasing vessel, but also in novel glass technology. The nine-metre long and 2.5-metre deep swimming pool on the main deck aft, for example, has a 68mm curved glass bottom, constructed by laminating five layers of glass interspersed by a clear foil. Many other features also attracted the judges’ eyes, including the three-metre high skylight dome in the master stateroom, and a wood-burning pizza oven on the top deck – a seemingly simple installation but one that required advanced design to clean soot and other particles from its smoke'

When it comes to sailing yachts, one particular vessel shone above the rest, picking up two highly coveted awards. Baltic Yachts’ 53.9m Pink Gin, a carbon fibre, high-performance, global cruising yacht, was the worthy winner in both the Sailing Yachts 50m and Above and Sailing Yacht of the Year categories. The technological advances across her hull and rig and her power-assisted 'force feedback steering' system are what sealed her place as winner in both categories

Hans Georg Näder, the owner of Pink Gin, apparently 'prioritised exuberant style and supreme comfort' when building the yacht

In this year’s new Sail-Assisted Motor Yachts category, Sailing Yacht A was named the winner. Sailing Yacht A is a 142.8m yacht built by Nobiskrug in Germany with interior and exterior design by Philippe Starck. The owner ensured that Sailing Yacht A would be one of the most advanced superyachts on the water. With her attributes in both motor and sailing, Sailing Yacht A was chosen as the winner because of her abilities in both fields and her environmentally-friendly innovations

Another victor was the 32.6m sailing yacht Ribelle, which was awarded the trophy for Sailing Yachts 30m to 49.9m. Class winner of last year’s Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, Ribelle was deemed the perfect modern mix of 'luxurious cruiser and thoroughbred racer'
