Asia Boating Awards 2015


To ensure complete transparency and high credibility in the awards, the organisers will be keeping to the tried and tested format of inviting a panel of experts to give unbiased and objective opinions about which yacht builders, marinas, charter companies, personalities and designers should be nominated. From the shortlist, the judges will each pick one winner per category that will be sent directly to the law firm that will tabulate the results for the Awards night in May.
