Vitruvius Yachts

World Superyacht Awards 2020


Winner – Displacement Motor Yachts Between 500GT and 999GT – Najiba

Vitruvius Yacht Najiba scoops prestigious award for Displacement Motoryachts at the World Superyacht Awards 2020.

"Built at the De Vries yard, with naval architecture and styling from Philippe Briand and his Vitruvius Yachts brand, Najiba’s numbers are phenomenal for a 58-metre yacht. Her top speed of 17 knots surpassed her rivals, while her fuel burn at her 12-knot economical cruise speed was just 137 litres/hour – around half that of her competitors despite her greater beam, clearly demonstrating an efficient hull design."

Distinguished and elegant, with a unique beauty all of her own, Najiba certainly lives up to her name, meaning ‘noble’. She was designed by the Vitruvius team as a family superyacht for experienced owners, who were fulfilling a long-held dream to commission a pure customised yacht.

Najiba was the first Vitruvius design built by Feadship. The signature is clear in her sleek, low and timeless profile and her extremely efficient hull built in aluminium. The owners understood very well that a perfect yacht requires a strong scientific and architectural approach to support the exterior design.
