And the winners are...

The Motor Boat of the Year Awards took place tonight at London’s Savoy Hotel. Twelve exceptional winners have been chosen by our judges, bringing together experts from Motor Boats Monthly and Motor Boat & Yachting, including our editor Carl Richardson and our technical consultant Mark Turley.

The rules of entry deem that all new boats on sale today are eligible for an award and every boat had to have been tested by a journalist from either MBM or MBY.

In certain categories the choice of winner was so tight that the judges also gave a Highly Commended award for exceptional motorboats.

See the winners in our MOBO gallery.
