Each year the International Superyacht Society (ISS) awards recognition to individuals and companies for their expertise, leadership, and dedication to raising the standards of design, construction, maintenance, repair, and operation of large yachts.

This year the prestigious Business (Person) of the Year Award went to Timothy Hodgdon President of Hodgdon Yachts

It is awarded to those demonstrating excellence in their area of superyacht expertise within the previous year.

Nominations come from the global superyacht industry and the winner is selected by the board members of ISS.

ISS unveiled the winners during its 25th Anniversary Design & Leadership Gala that took place on November 4 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
