THE NEW EXCESS Catamaran has been nominated for a string of prestigious international awards after its debut release at the Cannes Yachting Festival.

First release models 12 and 15 are both set for their first-ever award nominations on the back of a successful run of appearances at recent International Boat Shows.

The Excess 15 has been selected in the crème de la crème of international yacht awards – European Yacht of The Year – having been nominated in the Multihull category.

The smallest in the range, the Excess 12, has been selected by Sail magazine in the Multihulls Cruising category and is looking to win the title of ‘Best Boat 2020’.

Other nominations include Multihulls World magazine and the British Yacht Awards. Award announcements are set for December through January.

36 Degrees is the exclusive dealer for the Excess range in NZ.
