The following is excerpted from the 2002 Boat of the Year Award for the Voyage 440

In awarding the boat Overall honors, Cruising World magazine said: Of the structure, a judge said, Every multihull takes enough time getting through the wind that youve got torsional loads going through the skins, and, man, this one was a tight as a good guitar body. Of the sailplan, one judge said, They really had their bases covered for a variety of wind ranges in a very safe way. Of the deck layout, another judge said, Wherever you walked, you had a feeling that it was the most appropriate pathway to where you were going. Of the systems, a judge said, The electrical panel was absolutely 4.0, and the fuel tank forward was as fine an execution as I have ever seen. For these reasons and others, the judges called her the Best Cruising Multihull for 2002.

One judge said Shes the first multihull Ive seen that I really consider a prime yacht and a functional cruiser. Said another, Everything about this boat indicates that its seriously made for going to sea. Without any hesitation, you could hang the word passagemaker on it and your conscience would be at ease. Its the first time in the contests nine year history that the overall boat of the year award goes to a multihull. Congratulations to the folks at Voyage Yachts in Cape Town, South Africa.

By Conor @ The Multihull Company

Conor moved to the Virgin Islands to pursue a career as a professional captain. One of his deliveries put him on an Outremer 5x with sailing legend Jimmy Cornell. Jimmy was preparing his Elcano Voyage, a circumnavigation aboard a fully-electric Outremer 4x, and was looking for crew to join him. After weeks of preparation, the crew set off on the epic voyage. After several challenges, Jimmy decided to cancel the voyage and modify the boat to better serve his interests. This change of plans brought Conor back to the States sooner than expected with a new found passion for renewable technologies. He is excited to be an active member of the Ft. Lauderdale sailing community, and is looking forward to seeing how sustainable technology and sailing continue to intersect.
