The award is in recognition of Amber’s development and supply of prepreg material to Sunseeker.

Amber Composites and Sunseeker International have collaborated on several high-profile projects utilising prepreg.

In 2009, the two companies worked together to create a sledge made from prepreg to support the Help for Heroes charity's Kilimanjaro climb.

Building on that success, Amber developed a new resin system for Sunseeker in 2010, Multipreg E520, for a lateral hoop on the flybridge of the Manhattan 73. The hoop provides strength and stiffness at a high point in the superstructure where weight savings are particularly desirable.
