Propspeed, the underwater foul-release coatings specialist from New Zealand, is the latest to join the list of partners supporting this year’s Boat Builder Awards, held in association with Raymarine. 

As anticipation builds for the event, due to be held at the National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam on the evening of November 15, Propspeed is backing the Collaborative Solution between a Superyacht Builder and its Supply Chain Partner award category, one of 10 awards for this year’s event.

This year’s shortlisted companies for the Superyacht Builder & its Supply Chain Partner award  comprise: 

  • Amer Yachts & Simrad Yachting  – Green Assistant system
  • Benetti Yachts & Siemens Energy  – Benetti B.Yond 37M hybrid solution
  • Numarine & Lippert Marine Group Europe  – Patio doors for Numarine 37XP
  • Sanlorenzo & ABA Yacht  – Floating door system

“It’s fantastic to have another key partner to help us deliver what is going to be an industry showcase quite like no other,” said IBI Editor and chair of the BBA judging panel, Ed Slack. “As always this award category, aimed squarely at the superyacht market, is sure to be a major highlight of the evening.”

That ’evening’ will ratchet up the BBA experience to another level – a spectacular luxury canal cruise through the heart of Amsterdam, followed by drinks reception and entertainment sponsored by Highfield, after which guests will sit down to an evening of fine dining, entertainment and the awards ceremony itself, concluding with post-ceremony party, courtesy of McKenna Townsend.

The Boat Builder Awards for Business Achievement are organised jointly by METSTRADE Show organiser RAI Amsterdam and IBI publisher Boat International Media.
