Four models represented by Multihull Solutions have been nominated for the prestigious 2013 Cruising World Boat of the Year Awards.
The annual awards, staged by Cruising World and Sailing World magazines, recognise and honour the best new sailboat models introduced to the North American market with 24 boats nominated in 2012 across seven categories.
Multihull Solutions has nominees from three of the international shipyards it represents including Catana, Fountaine Pajot and NEEL Trimarans, and these constitute half of the nominations in the award’s two Multihull categories.
In the “Full-Size Multihulls” category, the Catana 47 and the Sanya 57 have been nominated, while Fountaine Pajot’s Hélia 44 and the NEEL 45 have been nominated in the “Multihulls Under 45 Feet” category.
The nominees were announced after a rigorous selection process that focussed on production boats that delivered outstanding performance and design for coastal and offshore cruising.
These nominated multihulls now proceed to the final judging round, and the overall “2012 Boat of the Year” will be announced in the January 2013 edition of Cruising World.
