The Results

The awards most eagerly awaited by multihull enthusiasts were held on the first evening of the International Multihull Show - an in-water exhibition that has become a must for builders of two-and three-hulled boats.

The unmissable Multihull of the Year contest, organized by Multihulls World, along with the International Multihull Show, took place a La Grande motte on April 3. During the party sponsored by our partner Sevenstar Yacht Transport at the great multihull get-together that six of the nominees became winners. More than 250 exhibitors attended the event in the VIP tent. The event, presented by Gwen Dorning, our marketing director, and Emmanuel van Deth, our editor-in-chief, was shown in real time on social media and was of course the subject of a video put up on YouTube and our social media that same evening. The 2024 WINNER banners and stickers were handed over to the shipyard representatives, most of whom were present as exhibitors, with the exception of Iliad Catamarans and Vaan Yachts.
The next morning, the winning multihulls being exhibited at the show were quick to get their banners on display despite the very windy conditions.
Let’s remember that the MOTY is a unique election in two ways: it is a competition exclusively for multihulls (sail and power) from all over the world, and above all it is YOU, readers, sailors, racers and especially users of the nominated multihulls, who choose the winners in the first four categories. Our dedicated website MultihullOfTheYear.com, saw no less than 6,000 of you cast your votes.
For this 2024 edition, we decided to award the prize for the International Multihull Show Premiere. Finally, skippers on the Capt’n Boat platform were invited to vote for their favorite pre-owned multihull in a sixth category.
On the back of the success of this year’s event, we are now focusing on preparing the 8th edition, and we would like to thank all our loyal partners - some of whom have been supporting us since the first edition, so thank you and well done to them!
