Hallberg-Rassy has received the Honourable Mention for the <link yachts/new-hallberg-rassy-340/>Hallberg-Rassy 340</link> steering system in the category “Collaborative solution between a production boat builder and its supply chain partner” together with Lewmar. This was handed over at the Boat Builder Awards for Business Achievement 2019.
This celebrates a partnership between a boat builder responsible for series production and any business partner in its supply chain to improve an aspect of a boat model's sales potential, performance or services.
It is the twin wheel steering for the Hallberg-Rassy 340 that has been improved, for easier steering with minimized friction as well as a more efficient installation with less components and a more compact installation.
The Boat Builder Awards is jointly organised by International Boating Industry IBI and Metstrade. It celebrates and rewards the outstanding business achievements of individuals and teams across key areas in the worldwide leisure boat and superyacht builders. More than 300 people from across the global marine industry attended the extraordinary gala dinner celebration, which was held under the glittering glazed ceiling of the National Maritime Museum on the first night of Metstrade, 19 November 2019 in Amsterdam.
