Asia Boating Awards 2017


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. The judges will each pick one winner per category from the shortlist. Results will be revealed at the Asia Boating Awards night in April.
