The 2020 MBY motorboat of the year awards were held during the Dusseldorf Boat Show in Germany. This year and due to current circumstances, MBY are holding the awards virtually via a live Facebook video where members of the public can now join and watch the show. This year, there are seven different boat awards up for grabs, as well as the Customer Service Award in association with Nautibuoy Marine and the Judges‘ Special Award in association with Lumishore. All the boats have been sea-trialled and rigorously tested by the magazine’s technical experts, and the winners will be announced in a virtual ceremony on 19th January.

Princess Yachts has been nominated under the ‚Sportscruisers over 40ft‘ category for the Princess V55. The heart and soul of the V Class, she is dynamic and exciting whilst boasting the renowned design and engineering quality of Princess. The all-new Princess deep-V resin-infused hull of the V55 not only provides a smoother, more efficient ride but also creates more space below deck. Complementing this, there are two powerful Volvo D13 engines which deliver up to 2,000mhp with a top speed of up to 37 knots, ensuring a thrilling ride whatever the weather.

Her spacious cockpit connects to the main saloon via a cleverly concealed drop-down sliding patio door, seamlessly integrating both living areas. Plus, with the electric opening sunroof over the main deck, you can truly open yourself up to the elements. The V55 has been designed for owners who wish to spend more of their time above deck, getting in touch with the world around them and truly experiencing what a sports yacht has to offer.

Tune in tomorrow evening at 5pm to see if the Princess V55 picks up this award, and watch the full show.
