BEST EXTERIOR STYLING – SAILING YACHT
Winner: Briand YD for P2

It just looks right’ was the comment of one jury member who owns a sailing yacht, and this sentiment was agreed by a sufficient number of fellow judges for P2 to triumph in the Best Exterior Styling category for sailing yachts.

P2’s straight stem and fine bow sections not only look the business, but in combination with her slippery underbody, well optimised appendages and attractive stern lines they are the basis of an efficient sailing machine.

BEST SAILING YACHT IN 30M TO 44M SIZE RANGE

Winner: P2

This class saw a wide range of types, from one styled after a traditional Eastern Mediterranean trading vessel through more conventional cruising yachts to high performance cruiser/racers.

It might have been thought that such variety would have caused the judges some difficulty in making their decision but after the usual thorough discussion of the various aspects of each design the judges unanimously voted P2 as the winner, based on her stunning good looks, high quality construction, impeccable layout and excellent sailing performance.
