Here is the 24-40m winner (it's described as "an exterior of slender, modern lines"):

Here is the 40m+ winner, not quite as bad, but still wrong:

I suppose it is quite possible these were the only two superyacts designed this year so winners simply by default.

The Dixon boat is like the rest of his work, boring.
The photographer didn't do him any favors catching the bow diving into a wave.

some some of you must know . . . how many superyachts were actually designed (design completed and bid for build, I guess) last year?
Sail or power or both? We signed and started construction on 2 powerboats last year, (1) 130 footer and (1) 237 footer, with a 211 curently in build. We delivered a 164 earlier this year. I have not kept up with how the rest of the yards are doing though.

Briand has always been one of my favorites.

Well that's funny.
FWIW, the Apple i-Sore. Steve Jobs yacht just launched:
Does that ass end open up and all sorts of 007 type water toys fall out? Maybe an i-sub?
Edit to add:
I clicked on the link and looked at the full size image. Is that duct tape on the headsail?
