European Yachts of the Year 2022

The Düsseldorf boat show would have been now but because it wasn't they announced the winners on youtube



Anyway:

Family cruiser
Nominees: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1; Dufour 470; Hanse 460; Jeanneau SO 380; Neel 43
Winner: Hanse 460! (Wohoo!)

Luxury cruiser
Nominees: Hallberg-Rassy 50; Jeanneau Yachts 60; Lagoon 55; Swan 58; X5.6
Winner: Hallberg-Rassy 50

Performance cruiser
Nominees: IC 36 Independence; J/45; JPK 39FC; Pogo 44; Solaris 40
Winner: JPK 39FC

Bluewater cruiser
Nominees: Allures 51.9; Outremer 55; Ovni 370; Windelo 50
Winner: Outremer 55

Special yacht
Nominees: De Cesari 33; Revolution 24; Saffier SE33 Life; Sunbeam 32.1; Tricat 6.90
Winner: Saffier SE33 Life

Special Mentions
Sustainability: Windelo 50 (for using recyclable materials)
Sustainability: Elvstrom eXPR (for using recycled materials)
Versatility: Tricat 6.90


I think the categories are interesting. HR 50 is a "luxury cruiser" not a "bluewater cruiser" (oh why?). Outremer 55 could well be a performance cruiser and a luxury cruiser as well, I guess.

The sustainability focus is understandable and great that it is being recognized. I would be nice to get some more in-depth information about how much CO2 goes into producing a Windelo 50, and how much of what is in it, can actually be recycled (and to what) when the yacht's life is over.

Isn't it a bit early to announce the "best boats of 2022"? There's still 11 months for better ones to come along

And with the current demand levels being what they are, you can expect to sail a new one of those in 2025
