Multihull of the Year
The MOTY – Multihull of the Year – is an election whose purpose is to determine the best new multihulls launched on the market. Designed and organized by the Multihulls World / Multicoques Mag and the International Multihull Show teams, the MOTY is now an annual event.
For this sixth edition, for 2023, the nominated multihulls have been selected by our Jury. The list of nominees was announced on February 15, 2023 opening day of the Miami Boat Show.
The election results will be determined by the votes of the readers of Multihulls World and Multicoques Mag.
Readers can vote through a dedicated website: a vote will be considered valid if it has elected a multihull in each category. Any further vote by the same person will be considered void.
In order to avoid “ballot rigging”, votes coming from any professional email addresses of the nominated manufacturers will not be taken into account. That being said, any professionals concerned may vote by using a personal email address.
The votes open on February 15, 2023 and closing date for voting is April 9, 2023 – before the International Multihull Show at La Grande Motte.
The winners will be announced during the International Multihull Show, on April 12, 2023, during our partner Sevenstar's event.
Prizes to win by drawing lots
Each voter is eligible to be part of our special draw for a chance to win a Ralph Tech WRX Electric « Pirates Shadow » watch with a choice of steel or leather strap (value of € 2,600), as well as other prizes.

A little sistership for the Bali Catspace, though this catamaran features some new innovations. On the other hand, you still get the rigid foredeck and the tilting Bali door.
NAUTITECH 44 OPEN
We've been waiting for a new model from Nautitech for a few years now. The yard looks to be maintaining course with a high-performance multihull.
The new Excess 14, faithful to the brand's DNA, offers the thrill of sailing without sacrificing comfort on board.
While the specifications of the Lightwave 46 remain the same than the 45, the catamaran that’s just been launched features inverted bows and a redesigned coachroof with larger openings.
The Lagoon 51 was unveiled for the very first time last April at the International Multihull Show in La Grande-Motte. A model with an innovative layout, offering sustainable solutions.
The Rapido 40 has shown good average speeds right from its first sail. This model, in the Racer version, can be boosted with C-foils and a carbon rig. The floats are particularly voluminous, obviously guaranteeing good strength.
Like her big sistership, the 482, the Balance 442 has “broken” bows, i.e. straight near the waterline then inverted as they approach deck level. The 442 achieved averages of 12 to 13 knots and nice peaks that topped 15.
This offshore catamaran is as comfortable as it is fast and fun to sail. The announced light displacement, just under 10 tons, promises some beautiful sailing indeed!
CATANA OCEAN CLASS
Inverted, fine-entry bows ; controlled weight ; a powerful rig and deep daggerboards: this new model is indeed a Catana!
Very light but habitable, the 57 will fulfil the requirements of crews infatuated by speed, by offshore racing and also by high-end charter.
AQUILA 28 MOLOKAI
The 28 Molokai is offered with an Open deck plan or with an enclosed cabin under the name of Molokai Cuddy.
FOUR WINNS TH36
The TH36 looks like it’s going to be sporty, but the deck is also perfect for relaxation, with modular sunbathing areas, an outdoor galley, as well as two double cabins.
The 40PC blends perfectly into the new range with very long hull windows and an immense flybridge. The real plus compared to the 43PC? Aboard this model, there’s a proper interior helm station.
With a hull drawn by Philippe Briand and a drivetrain limited to twin 320 HP motors for a 20-ton laden displacement, there is a maximum boatspeed of precisely 20 knots.
The Leen 72 retains the principle of a vast platform, but adopts smaller and more aft-set floats than those of the NEELs. The 72 promises to be an ideal craft for long cruising.
The multihull is designed to be easy to sail with a single furling genoa and a mast that is logically stepped well aft to ensure good overall performance.
Vaan opted for aluminum, but mostly recycled. This first 40-foot catamaran is probably the smallest mass-produced catamaran ever built in this material.
AURA 51 SMART ELECTRIC
The electric Aura 51 is fitted with two 25 kW motors that work in hydrogeneration mode and 2,000 Wp of solar panels.
WINDELO 54 YACHTING
The shipyard has developed an eco-responsible composite sandwich to reduce the multihull's environmental footprint by 47%. The 54 is equipped with two electric motors of 20 kW each.
SUNREEF 80 ECO
Thanks to its sails, its high capacity of green energy production and its electric motors, the Sunreef 80 ECO can boast of sailing while reducing polluting emissions - without passing up on luxury!
