(Shanghai, China)- This past week saw over 27,000 visitors from 70 countries attend the largest boatshow in China, the China International Boat Show in Shanghai. Considered the most prestigious in all of China, the event also hosts the Asia Pacific Boating Awards. With over three dozen panelists selecting the winners for each category, it was not surprising that the creme’d’la’creme rose to the top. Winner of the this year’s CIBS Best Sportboat Award was the International J/80, recognized for being the world’s leading one-design sportsboat class with over 1,600 boats competing worldwide. J/80 is also the premier sportsboat in China. On hand to accept the award was J/Boats China’s representative Jimmie Johnstone.
