Best Boats 2011
By Peter Nielsen, Adam Cort, David Schmidt, Nigel Calder, Charles J. Doane
The business maxim that you have to innovate your way out of a recession seems to have been taken to heart by boatbuilders. After a comparatively small field of new boats in 2009, this year’s boat shows were crammed with talent. There was genuine innovation, a great degree of variety, and a good many excellent examples of the art of boat design and building.
Our judges’ task was harder than it has been for some years, but by the end of the US Sailboat Show in Annapolis, MD we had sailed and pored over enough boats to arrive at a consensus.
So without further ado, the recipients of the 2011 Best Boats awards are…
|Most Innovative System||Beneteau Sense 50|
