Hanse 315, European Yacht of the Year 2016

Hanse 315

Voilier Européen de l'Année 2016
catégorie voiliers familiaux

Voilà une récompense qui mettra du baume au coeur des équipes du chantier allemand Hanse, confronté à des difficultés financières. Le Hanse 315 a reçu ce trophée pour sa carène, son espace intelligemment réparti, tant sur le pont qu'à l'intérieur, et pour le fait qu'il constitue une offre particulièrement attractive sur le marché d'entrée de gamme des voiliers familiaux.

Winner in the Luxury Cruiser category: 
The first real cruiser from Cantiere del Pardo in over 40 years, the Grand Soleil 46 LC, is for those after something a bit sexier, a little more luxurious, a bit classier, and a bit quicker than the norm. This thoroughly Italian product has bold, angular if somewhat stark styling that combines with a very light, spacious, inviting interior. She particularly suits warm weather cruising. The deck design offers both plentiful comfort at anchor and practicality at sea – she is easy to handle and nimble enough to enjoy light-wind sailing.

Sunbeam 40.1 (Boat Presentation) 
 
 
Winner in the Multihulls category: 
Jens Quorning, the founder and designer of Dragonfly has a knack of keeping a family look, yet one that is updated to look contemporary – in the Dragonfly 25’s case, particularly with the reverse stem floats. As well as being genuinely towable, this offspring of the range is perhaps the most sporty, fun Dragonfly yet. Innovative outrigger designs and the ability to helm from either float ensure an exhilarating ride.

Winner in the Special Yachts category: 
The Quant 23 is a design that promises much but somehow delivers even more. Even if you didn’t even fit the foils you’d still have a blast on this super-fresh sportsboat – a lake sailer that ensures scows continue to have cult status. Add Hugh Welbourne’s Dyamic Stability System and you have a sportsboat on steroids, a craft that puts serious fun back into sailing, and makes foiling approachable.

Winner in the Family Cruiser category: 
A family-friendly pocket cruiser, the Hanse 315 has a seductive hull shape that proves a delight to sail and has the beam for cockpit and aft cabin space. The 315 stimulates the small end of the new yacht market admirably. Space is apportioned wisely, with standing headroom and a great aft cabin. The Hanse 315 is a highly versatile and impressive new compact cruiser.

Winner in the Performance Cruiser category: 
The Solaris 50 is the most current, desirable new production yacht design, a bonafide trendsetter, with engineering quality to match her looks. She represents the melodious meeting of South American design flare with Italian styling. The result is luxurious performance. The Solaris 50 is sexy, elegant, sophisticated and a positive delight to sail.

Winner in the Family Cruiser category: 
A family-friendly pocket cruiser, the Hanse 315 has a seductive hull shape that proves a delight to sail and has the beam for cockpit and aft cabin space. The 315 stimulates the small end of the new yacht market admirably. Space is apportioned wisely, with standing headroom and a great aft cabin. The Hanse 315 is a highly versatile and impressive new compact cruiser.

Winner in the Performance Cruiser category: 
The Solaris 50 is the most current, desirable new production yacht design, a bonafide trendsetter, with engineering quality to match her looks. She represents the melodious meeting of South American design flare with Italian styling. The result is luxurious performance. The Solaris 50 is sexy, elegant, sophisticated and a positive delight to sail.

Winner in the Luxury Cruiser category: 
The first real cruiser from Cantiere del Pardo in over 40 years, the Grand Soleil 46 LC, is for those after something a bit sexier, a little more luxurious, a bit classier, and a bit quicker than the norm. This thoroughly Italian product has bold, angular if somewhat stark styling that combines with a very light, spacious, inviting interior. She particularly suits warm weather cruising. The deck design offers both plentiful comfort at anchor and practicality at sea – she is easy to handle and nimble enough to enjoy light-wind sailing.

Winner in the Multihulls category: 
Jens Quorning, the founder and designer of Dragonfly has a knack of keeping a family look, yet one that is updated to look contemporary – in the Dragonfly 25’s case, particularly with the reverse stem floats. As well as being genuinely towable, this offspring of the range is perhaps the most sporty, fun Dragonfly yet. Innovative outrigger designs and the ability to helm from either float ensure an exhilarating ride.

Winner in the Special Yachts category: 
The Quant 23 is a design that promises much but somehow delivers even more. Even if you didn’t even fit the foils you’d still have a blast on this super-fresh sportsboat – a lake sailer that ensures scows continue to have cult status.

Dragonfly 25, European Yacht of the Year 2016

Dragonfly 25, European Yacht of the Year 2016

Dragonfly 25

Voilier Européen de l'Année 2016
catégorie des multicoques

Voilà un prix qui fera causer sur les pontons, car le DragonFly 25 s'impose devant des modèles comme le Bali 4.3, le Comet Cat 37 et le Slyder 47... Le jury a apprécié les flotteurs repliables, et l'amélioration générale apportée à un concept dejà connu depuis longtemps. Un bateau idéal pour la croisière côtière rapide, car le Dragonfly 25 est très performant !!

Voilier Européen de l'Année 2016
Catégorie voilier spécial

Avec le Quant 23, le Jury a récompensé cette année un modèle original, qui se distingue par ses foils et qui se destine à une navigation sur des lacs. Un bateau bourré de stéroïdes, et qui offre des sensations assez uniques, du pur plaisir sur l'eau pour un bateau très technologique et au design réussi.
