DAME Award

DAME Award Category Winner METS 2013

The DAMEAWARD 2013 judges: “Daring design, durably constructed boat trailer, remarkable use of applicable materials and unique branding, Vanclaes offers something completely new in this sector. The judges especially appreciate the robust walking platform that allows you to keep your feet dry when launching and retrieving your boat and the integrated waterproof lights that make a separate light bar obsolete.”


The completely new modern generation of high-quality Dutch Vanclaes boat trailers, with its exceptional innovation and affordable price, win the prestigious DAME DESIGN AWARD METS 2013 in Amsterdam.


Innovative boat trailer
Thanks to the fully integrated and unique modular construction, a large number of patents and modern techniques like CNC-controlled laser and water cutters that are used during production, the construction costs are kept appealingly low. These remarkably low construction costs make it possible to sell this trailer at a competitive price, in spite of the use of high-quality components, materials and finishes like stainless steel loading systems and a powder coating.


The Vanclaes boat trailer, with its design, the modern look and the highly innovative character, has justly been awarded the DAME Award 2013 by the panel of judges.


Commercial innovation for international dealers
Vanclaes challenges motivated Dutch and European dealers to expand their trade in a powerful and profitable way by cooperating with us as Business Partners. The Business Partner will have a remarkable new product and will receive support during the sales process with professional marketing tools and a functional online environment. The Vanclaes Experience Center in Alphen aan den Rijn offers face-to-face support and allows the Business Partner to experience all the ins and outs of the Vanclaes boat trailers.


Vanclaes versus conventional. Vanclaes: “It is nothing new to transport a boat on a trailer. However, here are some things that are new: our specially designed – and patented – loading and unloading system, the robust walking platform (highly appreciated by the DAME judges) that keeps your feet dry when launching and retrieving your boat, the waterproof lights integrated in the chassis that make a separate light bar obsolete, the waterproof brake discs, the waterproof oil-filled wheel bearings and the hoist rings welded to the construction. All these innovations make this trailer truly part of the next generation of boat trailers.”


That explains our motto: “Vanclaes, the next generation of boat trailers.”
