Cynara nominated for “Classic Boat Awards 2021”

We are pleased to announce that the Riviera-owned classic yacht Cynara has been nominated for the 14th annual Classic Boat Awards 2021 hosted by the British magazine Classic Boat. The awards are held to celebrate the “best in the sometimes unsung world of classic and traditional boatbuilding and restoration.”

 

The nomination comes after four years of restoration work on Cynara, done by 50 shipwrights and carpenters from 10 countries, and is the first time that a restoration from Asia has ever been nominated for a classic boat award. The nomination, which is for the over 40ft. (12.2m) category, reads: Cynara is proof…that big-yacht restoration is not dead.”

 

Voting for the award will commence on January 15 (UK time), and is open to the public. Those interested in casting a vote can do so by visiting the dedicated site awards.classicboat.co.uk and clicking on their choice. We hope to have the support of the many people all over the world that have been following our progress over the years of restoration.
