European Yacht of the Year: Multihull category EXCESS 15

The crème de la crème of international yacht awards. The Excess 15 has been nominated in the Multihull category.

“[The Excess 15] is intended to offer a more active sailing experience and is geared toward a younger audience. They sport twin helm stations and high-aspect sailplans with the mast far aft, allowing for rather large self-tacking jibs. Being the biggest of the new breed the Excess 15 is also the most generous. The living quarters resemble a modern designer hotel, looking both airy and open. Certainly a niche if not a veritable space in the market formerly unaddressed.” European Yacht of the Year Awards

Sail Magazine: Multihull Cruiser category EXCESS 12

The objective of SAIL magazine is to offer the public a broad vision of the boating industry. The Excess 12 is positioned in the Multihulls Cruising category and is looking to win the title of "Best Boat 2020" against her opponents. 

“[Excess] are still very much their own boats, thanks to such features as twin outboard helm stations set well aft (in many ways the mark of a true performance cat), just a hint of reverse sheer to complement the boats’ plumb bows, and a high-aspect rig and square-top main. The company also equips each boat with a clever retractable roof in the cabintrunk aft to further open things up in nice weather.” Sail Magazine.
