Lacey Kay takes home top honors at the IYAA Awards
Nordhavn 9612 Lacey Kay was voted best yacht design in the 25-40 meter category at the International Yacht and Aviation Awards ceremony in Venice, Italy yesterday evening. The gorgeous Lacey Kay went up against seven other yachts to take home top prize. PAE Vice President Jim Leishman was on hand to accept the award on Nordhavn's behalf.
"As you can imagine, there is elation in the Nordhavn world tonight," said PAE President Dan Streech back at Nordhavn's headquarters in California after receiving a text from Jim Leishman late in the afternoon simply stating "we won". "We knew that our wonderful army of Nordhavn supporters around the world were voting. We knew we had the best boat in the world. And now the rest of the world knows it."
The award is a testament to the design team led by Chief Naval Architect Jeff Leishman, as well as the gorgeous Nordhavn 96 model. Lacey Kay is the second N96 to be delivered.
