2024 Boat of the Year winners

Published on December 26th, 2023

Sailing World magazine revealed the HH44 as its Boat of the Year for 2024. This $2 million crossover catamaran is the performance sailor’s retirement race boat, and is the smallest of the builder’s new lineage of hybrid-powered performance catamarans.

It is positioned as an entry point into big-cat sailing, with this model not requiring a professional captain or crew because simplicity and owner-operator considerations are prevalent throughout the boat, which is designed by young naval architect James Hakes, son of Paul Hakes, one of the company founders. Chinese entrepreneur Hudson Wang is the other “H” of HH Catamarans. – Full report

• Best Trimaran: Dragonfly 40 Ultimate
• Best Dinghy: RS Toura
• Best Recreational Racer: Z24
