YCM Explorer Awards 2023

The YCM Explorer Awards recognize yacht owners who take their environmental responsibilities seriously. The awards are presented by the club's president, HRH Prince Albert II, at the end of a one-day environmental symposium organized by YCM during Monaco Ocean Week in March.

The main criteria for these awards are a commitment to the marine environment, whether it is a feature of the yacht or the way it is used, and what it can do for humanity. It could be a technical innovation that significantly reduces CO2 emissions, an assist to scientists, or simply an opportunity to share adventures at sea so that even more people will respect, love, and protect the ocean. These men and women are true explorers, and they all perpetuate the YCM philosophy of "Art de Vivre la Mer," which is the core values of the club. This year’s award categories are: Technology & Innovation, Mediation and Science, Adventure & Environmental Ethics, “Coup de Coeur”
