On Friday, January 21, 2022, the European Yacht Of The Year 2022 ceremony was held and broadcast virtually live on YouTube.

As the award ceremony could not be held during the BOOT trade fair in Düsseldorf, which was cancelled due to the health situation, the organizers announced the results on YouTube.

The European Yacht of the Year awards are like the “Oscars of the sailing world”. The winners are chosen by a jury representing the twelve main European magazines, including Voiles et Voiliers (France), Yacht (Germany), Yachting World (United Kingdom), and Vela e Motore (Italy).

This year, in the flagship category “bluewater cruiser”, the five finalists were: the Ovni 400, the Allures 51.9 – shipyard of the Grand Large Yachting group, the Windelo 50, the HH OC50 and the Outremer 55.

This trophy is the fourth won by the Outremer shipyard in four participations after the Outremer 49 in 2009, the Outremer 5X in 2012 and the Outremer 4X in 2017.

“We are extremely proud that our latest addition to the Outremer family, the Outremer 55, has won the European Yacht Of The Year award in the blue water cruising category.

This is a superb reward for the work and know-how of all our teams, who are involved on a daily basis in designing and building boats that are both elegant, high-performance and comfortable to take our sailors to the end of their dreams,” says Xavier Desmarest, Co-founder and CEO of Grand Large Yachting.
