The 2014 Asian Boating Award nominations have officially been announced and a number of Phuket businesses have made the cut! Created by Asia-Pacific Boating and China Boating magazines in 2005, the annual Asia Boating Awards recognizes the best of the maritime industry in Asia and internationally.
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 final winners being determined by a panel of judges selected for their expertise as well as their ability to make informed, impartial decisions.
