Well received when it was presented at the various European boat shows, the winner will now head off to America for the Annapolis boat show, from 5 to 9 October 2017. It is also worth noting that the Oceanis 51.1 is in contention for the title of best yacht of the year in the “Family Cruiser” category (EYOTY).
