Best of Boats Award

The Best of Boats Award is the largest award for powerboats in Europe, judging by the number of participating countries, jury members and media. As the only powerboat award worldwide, the BOB Award is at home in all European water sports regions and internationally recognized as a seal of quality in recreational boating.

Since 2014, BOAT & FUN has been a supporter and partner of the award. Thus, the BOAT & FUN also provides the location for the announcement and presentation of the award. On Thursday evening, the winners in the categories Best for Fishing, Best for Travel, Best for Family, Best for Fun and Best for Beginners will be awarded.

In 2020, a one-time switch was made to a live professional broadcast of the awards ceremony. The vote of the international jury of experts was eagerly followed by the shipyard managers and industry representatives. Numerous boat enthusiasts followed the award ceremony, which was open to the public for the first time, via livestream.

Under the special conditions of this year, the 17 trade journalists of the jury, who come from all regions of Europe as well as Russia and the USA, had sifted through the international motorboat innovations throughout Europe - according to the motto 'sift internationally, test locally'.
