Each year Europe’s best in the boating industry are rewarded with the “Oscars of watersports“: The international “European Yacht of the year” award. The jury consists of editors-in-chief and yacht test conductors of Europe’s top eighteen Sailing- and motoryacht-magazines.
Traditionally the awards are presented during Düsseldorf boat show. This year, publisher Konrad Delius and director of boot Goetz-Ulf Jungmichel welcomed about 400 guests from the European Watersport industry to the award presentation.
Every year up to 100 new sailboats emerge on the European market, but only four are honored with the “European yacht of the year” award. The Oceanis 45 was elected European Yacht of the Year in the Family Cruiser class.
The list of yachts that competed in the Family Cruiser class were: Beneteau Oceanis 45, Dufour 445 Grand’Large, Elan 210, Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 379 and the RM 1060.
