The complete list of nominees for the upcoming Asia Boating Awards has been announced with some new and exciting entries, as well as some industry stalwarts. Asian yacht builders have been growing in global market share and are now starting to get worldwide media recognition. In recognising the China market and environmental issues, the awards this year feature three new categories: Best China Yacht Club / Marina of the Year, Best Brand Presence in China and Green Maritime Company of the Year.

This year sees awards in 21 categories, showcasing Asian Builders and international brands, as well as Asian regattas, marinas and yacht designers working in Asia. The pioneering Asia Boating Awards is the first event to recognise the efforts and successes of Asian yacht builders.

The list of nominees comes from online polling of Asia-Pacific Boating readers, with the final winners being determined by a panel of judges selected for their expertise as well as their ability to make informed, impartial decisions.
