Boat Builder Awards

If a business is on the expansion trail and has appointed new dealers or distributors in 2014/15, then the International distributor/ dealer development Award, the second of six award categories at this year’s Boat Builder Awards for Business Achievement , should be on their radar. Sponsored by Lumishore, the International distributor/ dealer development Award is designed for those boatbuilders that have struck out into new territories or developed existing ones to increase export sales.

The judges are looking for boatbuilders that have been particularly bold and proactive in their approach, spreading the core ethos of their brand successfully across markets. To enter or nominate for this category please submit details of how dealer/distributor appointments in 2014/2015 are transforming your business 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 on November 18 at the National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam. For more information about any of the award categories, how to submit entries and nominations, and to apply for tickets to the gala dinner, visit
