FORT LAUDERDALE — The Active Interest Media Marine Group handed out its Editors’ Choice Awards Friday night at a ceremony held at the Tranquilo Hotel in conjunction with the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
The awards honor boats in five categories: Best Motoryacht, Best Passagemaker, Best Fish Boat, Best Multihull and Best Down East Cruiser. An award also was given for Most Innovative New Technology.
The winners were chosen by the editors of the AIM Marine Group magazines: Yachts International, Power & Motoryacht, Sail,Soundings, Soundings Trade Only and Passagemaker, as well asBoatQuest.com.
“To find the glimmers of gold — incidences of true groundbreaking innovation that are well executed — and then to share them with our audience of serious boaters across all categories, that’s the goal,” AIM Marine Group publisher Gary DeSanctis said.
The Aquila 44 power catamaran was awarded “Best Multihull” in the 40-49ft category.
This caps off an incredible year for Aquila power catamarans, following the Aquila 48 being named one of the “Game Changers” of power boat design by Power & Motor Yacht magazine recently.
