“Winning the innovation award is a testament to the uniqueness of our product line,” said John Kermet, Seakeeper sales and marketing vice president, in a statement. “It also highlights Seakeeper's applicability in the superyacht sector, where we've been supplying products since mid-2008. We're very excited about this award.”

Five companies made short and interactive technical/innovation presentations to showcase the latest technological innovations for the superyacht industry. Superyacht forum delegates voted.
