The best boats on the European markets have been chosen once again. The winners of the Best of Boats (BoB) Awards 2015 were announced at the Berlin Boat & Fun boat show (Germany) on November 26th. Silver Shark BR 580 was the only boat fully manufactured and designed in Finland that managed to reach the finals, and we are proud to reveal that the Silver Shark came in 3rd in its category. All-in-all over 260 motorboats were tested and ranked by the jury, and the awards were handed out in four different categories.
The jury complimented Silver Shark BR on its excellent price/quality ratio and ease of use. The Silver Shark was held out to be an exceptionally safe and easy-maneuvrable aluminum boat, that is easy to transport on a trailer and economical to use and own. Special thanks were given to the vast and versatile interior.
Silver Shark BR 580 is made with the unique AluFibre™-structure, which combines marine aluminum with reinforced plastics. All Silver boats are fully designed and manufactured in Ähtäri, Finland. For two consecutive years already the Silver boats have been seen in the Best of Boats finals. We are extremely proud that we were the only boat in the finals this year that is fully Made in Finland.

Silver Shark BR 580 in short:
The new Silver Shark BR was introduced to the public in February 2015. During the planning process we especially focused on the design, driving properties, practicality and silence. The consoles in the new Shark BR have been moved further to the front, enlarging the passenger space in the stern to make boating even more comfortable for all.
The novelty model has more storage than its predecessor, and both the driver’s and the passengers’ legroom have significantly grown. Practicality has been the main focus when it comes to choices of material and detail planning. The windscreen, which is made out of actual glass, enables installation of a windscreen wiper, and on both sides of the engine well there are practical swim platforms for easier embarking.
