Boat of the Year nominees named

Cruising World and Sailing World magazines announced at the U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Md., the nominees for the 2010 Boat of the Year awards.

The awards recognize and honor the best new sailboat models introduced to the North American market this year.

The nominated boats move on to the judging round. The Cruising World judges will focus on production boats laid out and equipped for coastal and offshore cruising and voyaging, while judges on the Sailing World panel will concentrate on boats designed and built with racing in mind.

The 2010 winners will be announced in the January issue of Cruising World and the January/February issue of Sailing World - both set to hit newsstands in mid-December.

The 2010 awards mark the 26th anniversary of the Boat of the Year awards for Sailing World and the 17th for Cruising World.
