Multimarine wins prestigious award

Printer friendly page

On Monday 14th January, at the ceremony for the Motor Boat of the Year Awards, Cornish boatyard Multimarine Composites was presented with a Judge’s special award to honour the build of MarySlim, a 73’ wavepiercing Very Slender Vessel.

MarySlim was launched in March 2007 at the historic Royal William Yard in Plymouth, and since then has caused a stir wherever she has gone, from Portsmouth to Poland. Her owners, Richard and Mary Reddyhoff, had searched the world for a yard to build their dream boat, eventually deciding to choose Multimarine, a small but accomplished custom boatyard based in Millbrook.

The Motor Boat of the Year awards are held every year to honour the best production power boats in the world, as judged by IPC titles Motor Boat & Yachting and Motor Boats Monthly, but there is a discretionary Judge’s award they can give and this year they chose to honour a unique vessel.


Motor Boat & Yachting editor Hugo Andreae, presenting the award to Darren Newton and Simon Baker, Multimarine’s directors, said “We always like to keep one extra award up our sleeves for a person, product or boat that we feel deserves special recognition. Although we make a point of these being truly international awards, this year the judges felt that their special award should go to a project that epitomises everything that is great about the British marine industry. It required the vision of an adventurous British mariner to commission it, the talent of a British designer to interpret it and the boatbuilding skills of a British yard to create it. The end result speaks for itself.”

Multimarine are very proud to receive the award on behalf of the Reddyhoffs, who were unable to attend in person. MarySlim’s designers, Adrian Thompson and Nic Bailey, are also delighted their work has received such recognition. Together the team has proved British boatbuilding is still world class.
