The New VOYAGE 440 CAPTURES OVERALL HONORS IN BOAT OF THE YEAR AWARDS

Following the lead of noted sailing commentator Gary Jobson, marine industry professionals crowded under the St Petersburg boat show tent to raise glasses of Champagne Mumm to toast the leaders in the field. The Voyage 440 headed a lineup in an annual award series that salutes the stand out designs launched for the coming season.

As noted by the International Boat Industry (IBI) "In what is seen as the Academy Awards of the sailing world, the VOYAGE 440 was chosen as the Best Overall Cruising Boat for 2002" (The first time a multihull has won this award!)

Each year, Cruising World hire separate, independent teams of experts to select the exceptional designs of the year. This year judges tested a wide range of boats, from performance dinghies to 60-footers built for blue water. They sea-trialed each boat, scrutinized details, and debated the merits of every design to select this group of winners-the designs that define excellence in sailboat design and construction.

Cruising World editor Herb McCormick presented the Voyage 440 with two prestigious awards. 2002 Best Cruising Multihull 2002 Best Overall Cruising Boat of the Year.

Cruising World judge and circumnavigator Alvah Simon said this about the VOYAGE 440. "This 44-foot multihull did not earn judges' top marks for just one feature: Judges noted an entire vocabulary of details that, when combined together, created a passagemaker worthy of this year's BOTY title. Everything about the boat indicates that it's seriously made for going to sea. Judges applauded the boat's comfort, speed and performance, construction details, and execution of systems".

Full details of the award will be published in the January 2002 issue of Cruising World magazine.

A review on the VOYAGE 440 will also appear in January 2002 issue of SAIL magazine.
