Asia Boating Awards 2014


To ensure complete transparency and high credibility in our awards, we will be keeping to the tried and tested format of inviting a panel of experts to give their unbiased and objective opinions on which yacht builder, marina, charter company, personality and design representative deserve to be nominated. From the shortlist, they will each pick one winner for each category which will be sent directly to the law firm that will reveal the results at our event in May.
