Stabicraft’s 2250 Ultracab WT (Walk-Thru), which will be on display at the 2021 Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show, has been awarded a prestigious ‘Best of the Best’ Red Dot Award for global product design in 2021.
Designed for the American market in the Pacific Northwest, the Stabicraft 2250 Ultracab WT has gained popularity for its unimpeded access to the bow. Stabicraft visionary, Paul Adams said this model took perseverance. “Being an iterative design process, it transformed over a four-year period into what it is today. This award is excellent affirmation for the Stabicraft design team. The Ultracab WT gives the customer what they want and more, in a way they haven’t seen before.”
Akin to the Oscars of product design, the Red Dot Awards are one of the world’s largest design competitions. Twenty international professionals judge thousands of submissions on innovation, feasibility and functionality. In 2016 Stabicraft won a category Red Dot for the Stabicraft 1600 Fisher – Carbon.
The ‘Best of Best’ Red Dot awards are only given to the standout in any given category. Some years none are awarded. Winners are often globally recognised names – last year, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale and the Honda E Electric car won ‘Best of Best’ Red Dots.
In 2020 there were over 6500 entries from 60 countries, 1644 entries won some form of award but only the top 1.2% won ‘Best of the Best’ awards. By winning the ‘Best of the Best’ Award in the 2021 Watercraft category, we have outshone some of the industry’s biggest names and powerhouses of industrial design.
