The all-new Excess 12 Catamaran has taken out a prestigious award for Multihull of the Year in the ‘Under 40 feet category’.

This annual awards ceremony is organised by Multihull World magazine and is one of the biggest and most prestigious awards of the year. Shortlisted boats were chosen from a long list of over 70 multihulls, with a six-month online voting platform to determine a winner.

The Excess 12 was a clear winner thanks to its spirited design, signature twin aft helm stations, sporty rig, character and charm.

Making huge waves since its release, the Excess 12 has also recently taken out Sail and Cruising World magazines Best Boat awards.

The first Excess model is set to arrive in New Zealand later this year.
