ATHENS, NY - The entertainment industry is currently honoring its finest performers with Golden Globe and Oscar nominations. In a similar vein, the marine world's equivalent, nominees for the prestigious 18th annual Cruising World "Boat of the Year" awards, are also receiving worldwide recognition.
Elco Motor Yachts of Athens, NY, America's oldest producer of electric propulsion systems, is extremely proud of the nomination received in the "Best Small Cruiser – 30 Feet and Under" classification by the Elco powered Hunter 27E, the only zero-emission boat in the competition. Nominated along with the Presto 30 and eventual BoY award winner Beneteau First 30, the sleek craft, fabricated by Hunter Marine Corporation of Alachus, FL, will be reviewed in the January issue of Cruising World along with the 18 other boats nominated in the competition's three classifications.
