A perfect start of the Boot Düsseldorf 2011 as the Vripack designed Holterman 60 motor yacht wins the European Powerboat of the Year Award in the displacement hull class.
A specialist jury, consisting of the editors –in-chief of the seven leading European powerboat magazines, awarded the prizes in five categories plus an innovation award. All innovative products from the powerboat industry in the last year were rigorously assessed by the jury. So true Blue Ocean testing and no paper judging.
The Govenor is another Dutch Masterpiece and pinnacle of the long standing relation between builder Holterman Yachting and designer, naval architect Vripack. “Many visitors pass by the Holterman 60 and knock on the boat to test if it is truly from metal and not composite”, says Robbert Holterman. “It is an absolute understatement to say that I am very proud of my Team.”
“The sleek, honest and long running lines combined with only the absolute essential details and topped of with our state-of-the-art full round bilge underwater body makes her a worthy winner of this Award”, finishes off Bart Bouwhuis of Vripack, smiling from ear to ear.
