At its Cannes Yachting Festival debut the Solaris Power 48 Open was already a big hit with visitors, but it was at boot Düsseldorf that the new model won the highly sought-after European Powerboat of the Year 2020 award
Solaris Power 48 Open, created by the winning team who also developed the previous model: the 55 Lobster composed by Giuseppe Giuliani, Norberto Ferretti and Brunello Acampora, was awarded with the coveted European Powerboat of the Year 2020 prize at Flagship Night, the traditional annual prize-giving ceremony for the year’s best boats, organized on Saturday January 18th: the opening day of the German boat show.
The panel of expert judges from the boat industry’s seven top European trade publications voted unanimously to award the prize to the 48 Open, for the powerboat’s uniquely beautiful design, “best of breed” build quality and undisputed seagoing prowess, ensuring safe and comfortable navigation in any sea conditions.
With this award, the Forlì-based shipyard that is already a celebrated name in the world of sailing yachts, becomes a benchmark brand in the motor yacht segment too. In little more than a year since the launch of the first model, Solaris Power has successfully achieved its objective of establishing the excellence of the brand’s products in the motor yacht market.
Looking at the future, Solaris Power already has plans to continue expanding the range with a major investment in Open models, of which the 48 is the forerunner, including the introduction of a 58 Open and other smaller models.
