At the opening evening of the 2018 Boot Düsseldorf, the jury for the “European Yacht of the Year” Award announced the winners for this year. The European Yacht of the Year is one of the most comprehensive awards programmes for new production yachts. Twelve judges, representing all the main European nautical magazines, appraised each of the nominated yachts. The appraisal was during the autumn of 2017 for the 15th edition of the award.
The ClubSwan 50 triumphs as the best Performance-Cruiser yacht.
“We are very proud of this achievement! It comes soon after SAIL Magazine’s 2018 Best Boats Award in the United States. With twenty ClubSwan 50’s in water and a complete 2018 calendar of racing (The Nation Trophy Leagues in Med, US and Asia) our Swan One Design Division is now a reality.”, comments Sebastiano Fanizza, Nautor’s Swan Commercial Director.
Brendan Hunt, CEO of Vicsail, official representatives of Nautor’s Swan in Australia and New Zealand was there. “This is an important recognition of this fantastic boat, ClubSwan 50 European Boat of the Year! Vicsail are working to have one of them in Australia in the near future, because the ClubSwan 50 is just a perfect boat for our main regattas in Australasia”, comments Hunt.
About the ClubSwan 50
The ClubSwan 50 is the result of an impressive development program. Her design is by the expert Juan Kouyoumdjian. She boasts pre-preg carbon construction, a sexy low-freeboard hull with a dramatic reverse destroyer bow. Furthermore, an integral bowsprit, reverse sheer, distinctive chines and concave aft sections with lots of topside flare. The interiors are well conceived. With contemporary modular furniture for an easy conversion from cruising to racing mode. The owner’s stateroom forward, for example, becomes a sail locker. While the settees become over-and-under racing berths.
