Classic Boat Awards 2013

12 December 2012

Classic Boat magazine have shortlisted the top traditional boats, yards and people of the last year in a 'sumptuous gathering of style and class.'  They are asking you to vote for your favourites by 15 Feburary 2013, to give them 11 deserving winners.

Director of National Historic Ships UK, Martyn Heighton, has been shortlisted for 'Person of the Year', please vote!

Shortlisted for 'Boatyard' is T Nielsen & Co: the Danish shipbuilder Tommi Nielsen and his wife, Sarah White, set up shop in the disused Gloucester Docks in 1998 with little more than a bandsaw, planer, phone and fax.  Since then, the yard has restored countless wooden ships, many for film work, not to mention the historic vessel Jolie Brise.

Also shortlisted for 'Boatyard' is Cockwells: started in 1996 in Falmouth under Dave Cockwell.  Three years ago the yard moved to Mylor Creek and now boasts a staff of 20, a dry dock and a full order book.  Dave's apprenticeship scheme led, in 2007, to the Balvenie Award for Outstanding Support of a Traditional Skill.

Classic Boat's January issue has the full shortlist in print, but in the meantime, you can vote online

Simply choose your favourites from the shortlist and you will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win a brand new Musto MDC jacket and trousers worth £750.
