Pacific Yachting has awarded its first annual Best In Show honors to three products displayed at the recent Vancouver International Boat Show.
The three award categories are: Best in Show: Powerboat, Best in Show: Sailboat and Best in Show: Equipment. Judges Roger McAfee, Zuzana Prochazka and Dale Miller scoured both the floating show at Granville Island and the main show at BC Place for the best of the best in boating “stuff” and found three worthy winners to take home the inaugural trophies.
In the sailboat category, the Beneteau Oceanis 55 took top honors, “thanks to its well thought out interior and its innovative modular design. It was really an impressive boat on the dock. There were other boats that impressed, but it was hard to top this 55-footer,” said Dale Miller.
