63 products nominated
63 products from a total field of 127 entries have been nominated for DAME Awards at this year’s METSTRADE.
The nominated products show a broad diversity of submissions, from simple components and equipment used in watersports, through to complex systems for power and sailing yachts and large superyachts.
“We had a dramatic contrast in the physical size of products this year, with everything from superyacht primary systems, to the smallest clip,” said Birgit Schnaase, DAME jury chair, who has 23 years of experience as an engineer and interior designer. “It is sometimes easier to admire the incredible amount of work of an engineering design team on a well-conceived complex product, but we have been equally encouraged to see that same level of design detail on simple items that are often taken for granted."
She added: "We might have grown very familiar and comfortable with long-standing solutions in our industry, but that does not mean that they cannot be improved for the experience of a boat owner, the efficiency of manufacture and the potential reduction in environmental footprint.”
The DAME winners will be announced during the Breakfast Briefing in RAI Amsterdam on the opening day of METSTRADE 2018, taking place November 13 – 15 in the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre.
Nominated and winning products will be on display in the I-nnovationLAB in Hall 6.
