Quant 23 Foiling Keelboat--European Yacht of the Year Award

Today, 01:06 AM

Pretty cool stuff:
Toby Hodges of YachtingWorld:
Category: Special Yacht
Nominees: Bente 24, Corsair Plus 600, Far East 28R, Farr 280
Quant 23 – European Yacht of the Year 2015/16 winner
Hodges says:
I can’t remember ever seeing our jury so excited about sailing a boat before! Here is a design that promises much but somehow delivers even more. Even if you didn’t even fit the foils you’d still have a blast on this super-fresh sportsboat – a lake sailer that ensures scows continue to have cult status.
Add Hugh Welbourn’s Dynamic Stability System and you have a sportsboat on steroids, a craft that puts serious fun back into sailing, and makes foiling approachable.
The Quant shows exactly why we created the ‘Special Yacht’ category
