2011 Motor Boat of the Year Awards winners announced

Fifty-six boats were short-listed for this year s Awards which feature ten categories ranging from the smallest Starterboat to the fast and furious Performance and Superboat . The standard of the design and performance of this year s nominated boats was of such a high quality that as well as the ten winning boats, a further five were recognised by the judging panel and Highly Commended.

Simon Owen, Publishing Director at IPC Marine Media welcomed guests and gave special thanks to sponsors Garmin, KVH and Peters May for their support of the event adding, Their contribution to this evening s event has allowed us to continue celebrating in the style that befits such a fantastic industry. Now in their fifth year, the Awards are firmly established as the motor boating industry s ultimate definition of excellence in design, innovation and manufacture.

Each and every boat nominated has been personally tested by IPC s unparalleled panel of experienced and talented boat testers who rigorously put them through their paces on and off the water.

The 2011 Awards were sponsored for the third year running by marine electronics manufacturer and global leader in satellite navigation, Garmin.

The company also sponsors the eleventh award of the evening, the Garmin Outstanding Service Award, which rewards a company that displays excellence in customer relations. Nominations are made by readers of Motor Boat Yachting and Motor Boats Monthly and visitors to ybw.com.

The recipient of this year s Garmin Outstanding Service Award was Val Wyatt Marine, a company that impressed the boating public by offering exceptional service where nothing was too much trouble, even after the purchase.

In tradition of the Motor Boat of the Year Awards, a Judges Special Award was also presented. This year the Judges Special award was rewarded to the Seaway group, which has been working at the very heart of marine design and build for almost two decades. The Seaway Group has continuously innovated and made boating more accessible and exciting. It has been involved in delivering design, engineering and construction solutions for craft as diverse as the Marex 370, Monte Carlo Yacht and the Windy Blackbird and most recently, the hybrid-powered Greenline 33.
