The winners of this year’s prestigious DAME Awards was revealed yesterday on the first morning of METSTRADE 2016. The DAME jury - headed by Bill Dixon of Dixon Yacht Design - inspected a total of 117 entries from 26 countries, nominating a total of 67 products for consideration in the final judging rounds. The Jury decided a winner for each of the categories in the DAME Awards as well as 22 Special Mentions.
No less than 29 products were highlighted as Category Winners and Special Mentions, the largest number in recent editions. The DAME Awards team at METSTRADE comment: “It is a major achievement to win the DAME Design Award in any year, but it’s particularly significant to win it in a year with so many strong entries to choose from. The Jury took it’s time to select the overall winner of DAME Design Award 2016 and decided it could not be anything else but the Torqeedo Cruise FP Models.”
This system offers performance and pricing that is equitable to conventional internal combustion engine powered saildrives, making adoption of ecological auxiliary power solutions a practical proposition for a wide range of sailboats and inland craft.
