Find out which boatbuilders picked up the brightest gongs in boat world

The winners of the 2010 Motor Boat of the Year Awards were announced this evening at a glittering ceremony at The Langham hotel in London.

See the winners accepting their awards.

The annual awards celebrate the best of boating, and are open to all new boats on the market today – and not just new launches.

Every boat on the shortlist had been tested by a journalist from MBM or its sister title Motor Boat & Yachting prior to December 2009.

In some categories the choice of winner was so tight, the judges gave a Highly Commended award.
