2019 Miami International Boat Show Innovation Awards.

DOCKPRO’s SeaPen beat a strong field of impressive candidates to win the prestigious Innovation Awards for the Category of ‘Docking and Fendering Equipment’ at the recent 2019 Miami International Boat Show. As a winner, the SeaPen has distinguished itself as the boating industry’s best-in-class equipment that outperformed other new and innovative products in its category.

SeaPen received the 2019 Miami International Boat Show Innovation Awards, held on the President’s Day weekend on Virginia Key at Miami Marine Stadium in Florida. The boat show, recognised as one of the largest boat shows on the international boat show circuit, is a vehicle to help advance the boating industry and promote the boating lifestyle. It attracts an estimated 100,000 boat enthusiasts from 35 countries. The show, now in its 78th year, featured new boats and marine accessories worth $3 billion, from more than 1,100 exhibitors.

The Miami International Boat Show Innovation Awards are managed by the Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), the premier association for the North American recreational boating industry, and judged by Boating Writers International (BWI). It selects winning products based on a set of stringent criteria, including:

  • Innovative features that are distinct from other currently manufactured products in the marine industry
  • Substantial modification or adaptation to the marine market, if the product is based on a non-marine or general market
  • Provides significant benefit to the marine industry and/or buyers
  • Provides practicality of use and
  • Cost-effective.

SeaPen was judged the best among a great field of new and innovative products in the Docking and Fendering Equipment Category that were submitted to vie for the Miami International Boat Show Innovation awards. The category includes owner-installed docks, boatwhips, boatlifts, davits, cranes, fenders and fendering systems, dock lights, and dock-mounted accessories and hardware.

Now in production for over 15 years with thousands of units in the water, the SeaPen is the gold standard for dry-docking solutions in Australia. The SeaPen is a revolutionary product that incorporates patented technologies to dry dock your boat at water level without having to lift the boat out of the water. It allows you to keep your boat in pristine condition, with a hull that’s free of anti-foul and marine growth, so you enjoy your boating lifestyle to the fullest.

The SeaPen, Australia’s pride, is manufactured on the Gold Coast. It has recently launched into the vast US market with a big splash and is receiving strong interest in the American boating industry.
