2011 BOTY Award Nominees Announced

Annapolis, Md. – Cruising World and Sailing World magazines announced today at the U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Md. their nominees for the 2011 Boat of the Year awards. The BOTY awards recognize and honor the best new sailboat models introduced to the North American market.

The new sailboat models were examined by special nominating panels, consisting of each magazine’s editors and select members of the judging panels.

“The Boat of the Year nominees we have this year reflect a pivotal shift in the industry, in that we have raceboats and daysailers that were designed with the intention to lure people back to sailing,” says Sailing World’s editor, Dave Reed. “The builders really thought about what would excite both racing sailors and new sailors. The variety of boats our judges will test next week is more diverse than I’ve ever seen.”

Sailing World nominated 16 performance-oriented models for its awards:

Aquidneck Custom Composites 11-Meter Trimaran; Alerion Sport 33; Beneteau First 30; Class 2M; Dragonfly 28; Gunboat 66; Hobie Mirage Tandem Island; J/111; Landing School 20; Nacra F20; Raider 2; RS 100; Tangara 28; Scandinavian Cruiser 20 ; X-Treme 25; and Topaz Taz Race.

Cruising World nominated 20 boats, split into six categories:

Small Cruisers 30 Feet and Under: Presto 30, Beneteau First 30 and Hunter 27e.

Midsize Cruisers 30 to 39 Feet: Hunter e36, Dufour 375, Hanse 375 and Catalina 355.

Cruisers 40 to 49 Feet: Dufour 405, Jeanneau 409 and Dufour 45e.

Full-size Cruisers 50 to 55 Feet: Beneteau Sense, Moorings 50.5 and Jeanneau 53.

Premium Cruisers Over 55 Feet: Hylas 56, Southerly 57 and Beneteau 58.

Catamarans: Vision 450, Prout 50, Discovery 50 and Gunboat 66

The nominated boats will now move on to the judging round. The Cruising World judges will focus on production boats laid out and equipped for coastal and offshore cruising and voyaging, while judges on the Sailing World panel will concentrate on boats designed and built with racing in mind.

The 2011 BOTY winners will be announced in the January issue of Cruising World and the January/February issue of Sailing World – both set to hit newsstands in mid- December. The 2011 awards mark the 27th anniversary of the BOTY awards for Sailing World and the 18th for Cruising World.
