The finalists for the Motor Boat Awards 2017 have been announced and can be revealed today

Motor Boat & Yachting can today reveal the nominations for the Motor Boat Awards 2017.

After much debate, the judges have whittled the entries for this year’s awards down to a select group of finalists.

Every boat that has been tested and published by Motor Boat & Yachting magazine prior to and including the February 2017 issue has automatically been entered into one of eight categories then narrowed down by our judges to a select group of finalists. The panel will now review the finalists for the last time before selecting winners in each category.

The results will be announced at a gala dinner on January 9 and on mby.com.
