You’ve seen the winners , now read all about just why these manufacturers picked up Motor Boat of the Year Awards in February’s MBM, out tomorrow.

The prestigious awards took place on Monday night at Claridge’s Hotel in London, and were preceded by a glitzy dinner attended by the leading lights of the leisure marine industry, some of which you can see accepting awards on our Flickr photo site .

The awards were judged by the technical teams of Motor Boats Monthly and its sister title Motor Boat & Yachting, and the winners were selected from the literally hundreds of motorboats on the market today.
