Judges' Special Award for Achievement - Chasseur

Chasseur is the first yacht to be launched from Christensen following the reopening of the yard, and while this vessel did not top its class, the judges felt her worthy of a Special Award for Achievement in view of her wide ranging virtues and the admirable quality of her build that was carried out in difficult circumstances. Considering her one of the best vessels ever to leave the Christensen yard, they took note of her robust and seaworthy GRP hull which, powered by twin 1,650hp Caterpillars, achieves a top speed of 16-knots and a 4,000nm range at her 10-knot cruising speed. They also praised her sleekly modern exterior lines and her vibrant, light and bright three-deck interior that is linked by an intriguingly lit, cantilevered glass staircase.
