“It was an honour to be recognized as a nominee for the Boat Builder Award”.
IBI has such tremendous respect in our industry that even being considered for an award feels like quite an accomplishment”


Robert Braithwaite

CBE, founder of Sunseeker International

“This award means an enormous amount to me because it shows you have succeeded in what you set out to do. That is very important to me." When asked about a 'standout' boat in the builder's history Braithwaite added: "I think probably the first 17 footer, that's when we started in the early '70s. There were seven of us working then. Now there are over 2,000.”
