Victory Design, founded by Brunello Acampora in 1989, proudly announces Bolide 80’s prestigious win for Outstanding Exterior Design – Motor Yachts, 24m to 39.9m, at the esteemed BOAT International Design & Innovation Awards 2024, during a glamorous ceremony attended by the industry’s most celebrated designers, naval architects and shipyards. Held in the alpine town of Kitzbühel, Austria, during the Superyacht Design Festival, the awards acknowledge everything from styling and naval architecture to the innovative and eco-friendly attributes of today’s more impressive superyachts.

A prestigious judging panel, comprising yacht designers and naval architects from diverse backgrounds and countries, superyacht captains and yachting industry professionals, decided the winners of the coveted Neptune trophies. Bolide 80, nominated in 5 categories, won the prize for the best exterior design, proof of the obsessive attention that Victory places in the continuous improvement of the Italian Style.

Boat International jury states: “Bolide 80 by Victory Design pulled ahead of competition thanks to its full carbon construction, swift 70-knot top speed and automotive-inspired design.” Bolide triumph, not only highlights exceptional design but also reaffirms Victory Design’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of innovation in the superyacht industry. Known for its “Total Design” approach, Victory Design collaborates with top partners to offer Owners and Yards comprehensive yachting services, going from naval architecture, to yacht design and marine engineering. The studio’s history of designing groundbreaking racing boats, including winners like the European Power Boat of the Year, demonstrates its dedication to excellence.

In 2023, Victory Design expanded into construction, introducing Bolide 80, the world’s fastest Hyper Muscle yacht, and the first in a range from 60″ to 170″. Brunello Acampora enthusiastically remarks: “I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the esteemed jury for bestowing this prestigious award upon us. Securing the Outstanding Exterior Design prize is a vivid demonstration of our team’s unwavering dedication and hard work to give a distinctive vision expressed by Bolide 80.

This recognition not only validates our commitment to innovate but also serves as a powerful motivator to continue our pursuit of excellence within the marine industry. We are fueled by this acknowledgment and inspired to push the boundaries of yacht design.” Now, Victory Design is refining the biggest Bolide of the range: Bolide 170, which promises easy and safe handling, achieving high performance with reduced fuel consumption. The Human Machine Interface (HMI) is meticulously designed, as well as the T-Drive propulsion system which benefits from FLEXITAB’s thirty-year experience in the world of powerboat competitions.

The yacht, with top speeds of up to 70 knots in the turbine and electric motor version, represents a new era of speed and sustainability.
