Established in 1961, Vripack is a leading full service design, naval architecture, engineering and brokerage organisation. Aiming for long term relationships with private customers, yards, fellow architects and their personnel, the company won through with its Expedition yacht E&E (pictured).

E&EParticular credit was paid to the interior design and layout - and Bart Bouwhuis of Vripack was plainly delighted to have been recognised: “We applaud the jury with their insight that a happy owner starts with a happy crew and that on board E&E, the crew is very happy since they have a complete crew deck - a unique sight on a 500GT yacht. E&E is designed by us fully on the basis that form follows function and our team is so proud to be rewarded with a Neptune for this. We’ve already ordered cake for all of them!”
