Boris Herrmann holds laudation for project to train Melanesian women for marine protection
The presentation of the third "ocean tribute" Award was celebrated with a (ocean) roaring party on the evening of 20 January at the blue motion night in Hall 6. The "Sea Women of Melanesia" were delighted to win this year's award, which is endowed with 20,000 euros - provided by the Prince Albert II Foundation and boot Düsseldorf.
Simply being nominated as the “European Yacht of the Year” or “European Powerboat of the Year” is a special recognition of a boatbuilder’s achievements. At FLAGSHIP NIGHT, the maritime industry event organised by publishing house Delius Klasing Verlag and the “Boot” trade show in Düsseldorf on Saturday evening, the winners of the two renowned awards “European Yacht of the Year 2020” and “European Powerboat of the Year 2020” were announced.
A foggy day on Fischerstraße in Düsseldorf in November 1969: boot Düsseldorf’s success story of the boot is about to begin. Over the course of six exhibition days, 34,000 visitors flock into the hall and boot is launched. Trade fair manager Kurt Schoop landed a real coup by getting experienced boat journalist Horst Schlichting on board and founding the first inland boat trade fair.
