The Marquis 500 Sport Bridge made news at the 2010 Hong Kong Gold Coast Boat Show where it received the Asia Boating Award for best premium quality yacht between 31 and 50 feet. The award recognizes the best yachts from around the world.
"It is a real honor to be recognized by the nineteen yachting experts that make up the Asia Boating Award judging panel," Robert VanGrunsven, president of Marquis Yachts, said in a statement. "This group of yachting and premium product experts is involved in judging the quality of some of the world's most prestigious products and brands. Being included in their inner circle by receiving the Asia Boating Award is a very high complement."
The Asia Boating Awards are announced annually and are sponsored by Asia-Pacific Boating and China Boating magazines.
