Press release, Helsinki Vene Båt Internataional Boat show 10th-19th February 2023
We are honoured to announce that the Quarken 27 T-Top has won the prestigious Motorboat Awards in the category “Sportsboats up to 30ft”. The award was announced on the 24th of January 2023 during the Düsseldorf boat show In Germany.
The Motor Boat Awards is hosted by Motor Boat & Yachting and sponsored by Side-Power, the awards are judged purely on the boats’ design, ability, and value for money in their chosen marketplace. Every boat nominated for the award must go through an exhaustive sea trial process just to be considered for the nomination.
Winning motivations from the MBY jury:
“Quarken’s 27 T-Top is an object lesson in practical dayboat. It’s fun to drive, with a novice-friendly hull and an effective helm position with direct access to a ‘skipper’s cleat’ for single-handed work. And it looks cool too, with its sleek stepped hull, flared bow and contrasting tinted panels.
There’s also masses of storage on board and all of it is useable, thanks to sensible proportions, proper linings, dual access points and quick-lift one-handed cushions. But it’s the ease of movement that really hits home.
Even if you reverse the helm seats to integrate with the diners at the aft bench, you can still pass them freely on the starboard side. And when you reach the bow, whether the forward seats are rigged for dining or sunbathing, the step-through forepeak with offset anchor means you can still disembark without obstruction.
There’s no wet bar and the heads is an open-plan affair but if you want a proper open dayboat with a serviceable cuddy at a sensible price, this is a superb debut from Quarken.”
Words from the team behind Quarken
The entire team behind Quarken is thrilled over the award. It is by no means easy to make a market introduction today with so many great brands out on the global market. We had to work extremely hard to analyse the market, what needs customers have, what functionalities and solutions they wanted to have, and how we can differentiate from existing brands. Combining this information with the experience that our team had we managed to make a market introduction with the 27 range in the middle of the Covid years, with no boat shows or press events. Recognizing the effort, it took to do all this, we are honoured that MBY has seen the 27 T-Top for what it really is “an object lesson in practical dayboat and a superb debut from Quarken”, says Antero Sundberg, CEO of Quarken boats.
We want to thank Motor Boat & Yachting for the award, we feel extremely honoured that our work to create a multifunctional and practical dayboat has been recognized I could have not done it without the entire team behind Quarken, we truly value the dedication and contribution of every passionate and skilled team member that has worked on the project. It is our shared knowledge and visions that have created the successful 27 range, tells Osmo Roukala, Founder and Boat Master of Quarken.
We have also during the first years been able to build a fantastic dealer network across four continents and to cover fifteen countries, and I want to personally thank each and everyone of our dealers for introducing Quarken to their specific market, it is a shared effort to be able to make a successful market introduction in so many places in a such a short time, says Antero Sundberg.
