Our boat testers have narrowed down the field in their search for the best motor boats on the market this year and today we announce the 2015 Motor Boat Awards finalists

The most prestigious event of the boating calendar is almost upon as – there are only six weeks to go until the 2015 Motor Boat Awards.

Each year we use this event at the London Boat Show to honour the very best motor boats on the market.

Sponsored by Pantaenius, the 2015 event takes place on 12 January and sees the crème de la crème battle it out for the top prize in nine different categories.

The time has now come for our judges to name the finalists, who have been whittled down from the full list of every boat we’ve tested in the past twelve months.
