Yachting: Nomination stage launched for The Honours 2024

Taking place within the context of the Monaco Yacht Show, The Honours are a celebration of inspiring individuals at the frontline of change in the superyachting industry. Nominations have officially opened for the Class of 2024 and here is all the information you need on how to get involved. 

The superyacht industry’s image is evolving as it embraces a role as an innovator of sustainable maritime practices and as a source of incredible philanthropic ventures. To champion the efforts of those pushing the boundaries of the sector, the Monaco Yacht Show launched The Honours in 2023.

The awards take the focus off the magnificent boats and put it on the people who are living and working on board these glamourous vessels with the goal of sharing their stories and shining a light on the amazing things they are doing behind the scenes. 

From a deckhand working with indigenous peoples to help offset climate change issues to a scientist pursuing marine studies and research or a yacht owner who is doing their bit to make the luxury sector more eco-friendly, there are people throughout the industry who have been quietly doing good and deserve recognition.

The second edition of The Honours will be held during the 2024 Monaco Yacht Show, scheduled for 25th to 28th September in Port Hercule, but the nomination stage for the awards has already begun begun. 

The candidates need not be from any specific background or fall into any certain category, but they must have demonstrated “concrete achievements” in fields such as diversity, sustainability, innovation, research and philanthropy that are linked to superyachting during the last five years. 

The organisers of The Honours – the Monaco Yacht Show and the Superyacht Life Foundation – stress that nominees will be judged based on their accomplishments and not the number of times they have been put forwards for an award. As such, the emphasis of a nomination should be on the person’s “impact, originality, creativity and commitment to making a positive difference” in the sector.   

To submit a name, simply click here and fill out a short form describing why the person being suggested should be considered as well as adding any details, anecdotes or stories related to their achievements that you deem pertinent.  

After the selection process is complete, a gala award ceremony will be held to announce the winners later in the year.  

Submissions will be accepted until 1st April.
