“All the candidates bring their own distinctive specialities to the business of yachting in Southeast Asia. We work together on this common focus,” Mr Lee said.
The award recognises the Asia-based individual who has done outstanding work in terms of promoting Asia as a boating destination, developed new boating talent in the region, has enhanced Asia’s boating facilities, or has played a very positive role in the development of Asia’s boating community.
The 13th Asia Boating Awards organised by Asia-Pacific Boating and China Boating magazines were presented during a luxurious gala at ONE°15 Marina, Singapore ahead of the Singapore Yacht Show on April 6-9.
The awards recognise the best of the maritime industry in Asia and internationally. Presented during a lavish ceremony, the awards serve as a benchmark for the industry in the Asia-Pacific region.
“Congratulations to this year’s Asia-Boating Awards winners and nominees. These are the brands, builders, yacht clubs, marinas, companies and people who are working so hard to keep up with the rapidly growing popularity of boating in the region,” said John Higginson, Editor-in-Chief of Asia-Pacific Boating magazine.
“The great thing is, there are many others out there who deserve to be recognised for their efforts and hopefully we will see them nominated, and winning, in the years ahead.”
The prestigious awards were presented in 26 categories, showcasing Asian builders and international brands, as well as Asian regattas and marinas. This year, nomination criteria were refined and new categories included Best Sportscruiser, Best Flybridge Yacht, Best Explorer Yacht and Best Recreational Boat.
“There are never a lack of opportunities in the Asian boating market, even during the economic slowdown,” says Samuel Xu, Editor-in-Chief of China Boating magazine. “We are glad to see that those who continued to invest in the market in the past year are getting good returns, and as media we will keep pushing the market forward with all the brands.”
The list of nominees came from online polling of Asia-Pacific Boating and China Boating readers, with the winners determined by a panel of judges selected for their expertise as well as their ability to make informed and impartial decisions.
