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