As exclusive distributors in Menorca for both Princess Yachts and Chris-Craft, Clearwater Marine were delighted when these two world-class manufacturers were once again so deservedly recognised at the annual Motor Boat & Yachting Awards, which were held in London on 10 January 2018.
The Motor Boat Awards are judged purely on a boat’s design, ability and value for money in their chosen market place and all boats have been sea-trailed and rigorously test by the magazine’s technical experts – making it a real honour for any boat to be awarded.
Chris-Craft won the “Boat of the Year” Award in the Sportsboats and RIBS category for their beautiful Calypso 30. The judges said “Our winner is a boat that combines effortless performance and world-class build quality in a surprisingly practical but impeccably stylish package”.
And we couldn’t agree more. The Calypso combines the class Chris-Craft design for which they are renowned with comfort, a multitude of amenities and a crowd-pleasing layout that is ideal for families and entertaining friends.
Next, it was Princess’ time to shine receiving the Sportscruisers over 45ft Award for their fabulous Princess S60. On announcing Princess as the winner, the judges said “A category with some real variety but one boat stood out. With timeless style, effortless performance and a high quality, cleverly laid out interior”.
Powerful yet elegant, the Princess S60 is unmistakably S Class. Her sleek exterior styling with sculpted hull glazing generates a dynamic, agile stance. With an optimised hull form achieving greater efficiency she can reach speeds of up to 38 knots and when at anchor her generous deck areas provide space for relaxation including a foredeck seating and sunbathing area, whilst a tender or jet ski can be quickly launched and stowed in the large stern garage. Her sociable main deck features a galley aft arrangement with open-plan dining area, and sliding doors with a fully opening window leading out to the cockpit. Below deck six guests are accommodated across an en-suite full-beam master stateroom and two further guest cabins. Blending iconic design, exceptional engineering and unrivalled craftsmanship the S60 provides an unforgettable cruising experience.
