Considered to be the “Nautical Industry's Oscars” the European Yacht of the Year awards honour and reward beauty, innovation, originality, quality manufacturing and performance.
On Saturday evening Düsseldorf hosted the official European Yacht of the Year awards and brought together an audience of over 400 guests, with a jury comprising of all the editors from the main and more notable magazines of the European marine press. We are thrilled to report that the Beneteau Oceanis 38 won her category and is now the ‘ Family Cruiser’ European Yacht of the Year 2014.
Shown for the first time at the Festival de la Plaisance de Cannes (Cannes Boat Show) last September, the Oceanis 38 has certainly stirred a lot of excitement within the industry, and the judges unanimously decided that it was the Oceanis 38’s highly innovative evolving concept , seaworthiness and style of the fittings which earned it this victory and very impressive title.
Congratulations to all who worked to earn this extremely well deserved accolade!
