The winner for 2005, who will be presented his award at the London Boat Show, is Robert Di Rienzo, currently studying the BMF NVQ 1 in Boat Production and Services.

Fairline is looking for further youngsters to take on the baton and train at its factory and on day-release at Tresham college in Corby, Northamptonshire.
