The GUNBOAT 55 has been crowned Cruising World’s 2015 Domestic Boat of the Year. The publication’s annual competition is judged by a panel of independent judges. This year’s judges, Tim Murphy, Ed Sherman and Mark Schrader, were unanimous in their praise and selection.
Judging took place during the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis in October; a thorough dockside walk through followed by sea trials in the days immediately following the show. After tallying the votes, the GUNBOAT 55 emerged as the obvious winner, taking not one, but two categories, “Domestic Boat of the Year” and “Best Multihull Cruiser.”
