Just J's at the Awards

Monday, May 29, 2017

As the largest superyacht we have built to date, the 61-metre Just J's is already a source of considerable pride to everyone involved in the Hakvoort yard. Her owners too are delighted with their yacht, and so it seems are the industry experts behind the three major superyacht awards.

Since her launch, Just J's has been a finalist at the Showboats Design Awards 2017 in the Best Exterior Design & Styling category and was also nominated for an award by the International Superyacht Society on the eve of last November’s Fort Lauderdale boat show in the category 'best power 40-65 '.

The most recent event was the World Superyacht Awards, which were held in the beautiful city of Florence on Saturday May 13. Just J's had already been chosen as one of the six nominees in the category for displacement motoryachts between 500GT and 1,299GT, which is an impressive achievement in its own right.

The jury for deciding the eventual winner was made up of current and former owners with a great deal of knowledge of what it takes to build a luxury superyacht at a premium quality level. In their report these judges stated that they had found it very hard to choose a single winner, such was the high standard of the yachts in this category, which included four from the Netherlands. In the end Just J's was pipped to the post by the Feadship Joy.

Congratulations to our Dutch colleagues at Feadship, and to Heesen Yachts, which won two awards in other categories.
We also extend our gratitude once again to the owners of Just J's for helping us create a superyacht that has become so well known.
