Each year at boot Düsseldorf (the world’s largest watersports trade fair), Europe’s best in the boating industry are rewarded with the “Oscars of watersports“: The international “European Powerboat of the Year” Awards. The expert panel consists of editors-in-chief of Europe’s top seven motorboat magazines. Every year, a rough 200 new boats emerge on the market. The jury nominated 25 new boats in five length classes for powerboats: up to 25 feet, up to 35 feet, up to 45 feet, over 45 feet and the Trawler class, where length is of no importance.
