American boat builder Rec Boat Holdings was awarded a European Boat of the Year Award in the powerboat under 25 feet category for its Four Winns S215 model. The award was presented by Boote Magazine at the Düsseldorf Boat Show in Germany on January 21. Awards were presented to powerboats in six categories, with Four Winns the only American-built boat to win an award. The Four Winns S215 was selected over four other boats in its category by a judging panel that included test drivers and journalists from seven European nations.
“We are extremely proud to receive this award,” said Roch Lambert, Group President, Rec Boat Holdings. “It is a true endorsement of our renewed philosophy on engineering and design and what it means to our consumers. Producing an award-winning product truly makes our brands stand out from the rest, as the elite group of judges has confirmed through this competition.”
The Four Winns S215 is a new 21-foot 4-inch closed-bow sport boat that features the Four Winns Stable Vee® hull design.
