The winners of the 2014 Motor Boat Awards have been announced earlier this month at a Gala Dinner and Award Ceremony hosted by IPC Marine Media at The Landmark Hotel in London. A gathered audience of over 250 international guests saw Motor Boat Awards presented to winning boats in nine categories ranging from 16 foot Starterboats to super-luxury Custom Yachts. A further seven boats were Highly Commended by the judges.

The Award Ceremony was co-hosted by the editors of Motor Boat & Yachting and Motor Boats Monthly, Hugo Andreae and Rob Peake. These two IPC Marine Media titles launched the Awards in 2007 and their experienced journalists make up the judging panel. A total of 55 boats were selected as finalists for the 2014 awards and the 9 winners came from Austria, England, Italy and the US.

The Outer Reef 700 yacht took the honors in the ‘Trawler Yachts and Aft Cabin’ category, with Motor Boat & Yachting editor Hugo Andreae saying: “it does everything a world class trawler yacht should and matches it with a level of build quality and customization that we would never have believed possible at this price.”

Among other winners were the Austrian-built Frauscher 1017 GT yacht tender in the ‘Performance Boat’ category, and Ferretti for the Ferretti 960 superyacht in the ‘Custom Yacht’ category.

Simon Owen, Publishing Director of IPC Marine Media, congratulated the winners, summarizing, ‘The wide range of nationalities we have welcomed onto the stage tonight perfectly reflects the growing international reach and appeal of Motor Boat & Yachting and Motorboats Monthly. Despite the harshness of recent years, it’s enormously gratifying to be in the company of winners and finalists who have once more impressed our judges with their mixture of high quality construction, design innovation and outstanding on-water performance.’

Outer Reef Yachts, with offices worldwide, is a semi-custom builder of long range motor yachts from 56′-115′.
