Builders honored at Asian awards ceremony

The eighth annual Asia Boating Awards honored the best in Asian luxury yachting last week in Hong Kong.

McConaghy’s Boats, which recently launched the fully custom yacht Adastra from its China yard, took home the prize for Best Yacht Design of the Year.

Hong Kong/South China superyacht builder Kingship and Taiwan yacht builder Horizon were recognized by the panel of judges as the best Asian yacht builders in their categories.

The winner of the Best Asia Built Yacht was IAG Yachts of Zhuhai for its Italian-styled Electra 100.

Dutch brands dominated the international large yacht categories, with Feadship and Heesen taking the awards this year for best custom and best semicustom yachts. UK builder Sunseeker took home the prize for its new 28-meter yacht in the Best Production Motor Yacht Category (24m-40m). The boat features new wraparound windows in a big departure from the traditional Sunseeker look.

The event, hosted by Asia-Pacific Boating and China Boating, was held May 10 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel Ballroom in Hong Kong.
