Boat Builder Awards: Nominate for Innovative On-Board Design Solution

Boat Builder Awards: Nominate for Innovative On-Board Design Solution

  • 28 July, 2015

Innovation is at the heart of the fourth of six award categories at this year’s Boat Builder Awards for Business Achievement in association with Raymarine and organised jointly by IBI and METSTRADE.

The Innovative On-Board Design Solution Award, sponsored by Fusion, recognises boatbuilders around the world that have developed a specific design feature that transforms their end-users' on-board experience. Perhaps it’s a technical or mechanical solution to aid comfort or safety while underway? Or clever aesthetic changes to maximise the perception of space down below? Above all the judging panel is on the lookout for a unique approach in turning perceived negatives into positives that reward the user.

To enter or nominate for this category award, please submit details of design solutions made on-board in 2014/15 via the awards’ website,

It is free to enter and to nominate for any of the six award categories.

Winners will be announced at a glittering gala dinner to take place during the METSTRADE show on November 18 at the National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam.
