The Asia Boating Awards are coming up soon and this year we really want to see Hudson Yacht Group and HH Catamarans nominated. Therefore we need your vote!
It has been a great year for the company. HH66-01 'R-Six' successfully launched last April and was quickly followed by HH66-02 'Night Fury' and HH66-03 'Nala' and HH55-01 'Minnehaha' launching earlier this month.
All these boats are eligible for nominations, but I think it might be best to focus our votes on HH66-01 'R-Six'. This will maximize our chances of seeing HH Catamarans nominated.
Below is a link to the nominations page. It will take a few minutes to complete but as is always the case with these things, every vote counts!
Some categories require a description an image to be uploaded. Use the information below to copy and paste.
The deadline for nominations is midday on Sunday, 12th March, Hong Kong time.
Thank you for your vote!

Best Brand Presence in China,
Best Brand Presence in Asia,
Brand: HH Catamarans
Description: HH Catamarans was created by Hudson Wang, from Taiwan, and Paul Hakes, from New Zealand who came together in early 2012 and set about developing a new brand. The name HH has since come to represent their personal commitment to the quality and success of every boat they build. This is a new generation of luxury high performance cruising cats - the goal was to take multihull yachting to the next level. To put the brand to test they first created the HH42, a Grand Prix high technology racing yacht. This monohull was designed to be a race winner and was built using 100% prepreg carbon; America's Cup-style construction. It worked. To date five boats have been built and are winning regattas world-wide. Encouraged by their success and driven by their passion, Hudson and Paul created the HH66. Today the HH Catamaran family includes the HH55 and the HH66, and continues to grow with our newest arrivals - the HH77, HH88 and HH48 - on the not too distant horizon
