Cruising World magazine announced the winners of its 18th annual Boat of the Year awards.

Topping this year's list of winners were the Catalina 355 and the Discovery 50. The Catalina 355 won the Domestic Boat of the Year award and the Discovery 50 was named Import Boat of the Year.

Four other boats also won awards from an independent panel of experts who inspected and tested 19 nominated boats after the U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Md., earlier this year.

All of the winners, along with the rest of the 2011 nominees and several other boats reviewed by the magazine's editors, will be featured in the January issue of Cruising World.
