The award for Best Full-Size Production Cruiser went to the Beneteau 49, which offers comforts dreamed of by cruising families and couples. The Seawind 1160 was judged as both Best Multihull Cruiser and Most Innovative, an award the judges were unanimous in bestowing. "This is the first production multihull that I've ever seen that I'd consider buying myself," said Peter Wormwood, a BOTY judge and catamaran designer and racer. Best Full-Size Cruiser was the Trintella 50. "It's that perfect balance between safety and sailability that made this boat go to the top of my list," said judge Simon. Morris Yachts' M42, which was described by the judges as "the prettiest, best-built, and most delightful new boat," was declared the champion in the Special-Purpose Cruisers category.
