The Chris-Craft Corsair 32 has just been named Best Sport Boat at the Shanghai International Boat Show in China.

Not to be outdone, the Azimut 55S just earned the title of best boat in her size range at the Palma Boat Show in Spain.

The Corsair 32 is being offered for 2013 with new custom color options, including “cashmere metallic,” which is shown in the photograph at right. Other new options include blonde teak caulking, for owners who prefer it to the more traditional natural or varnished teak.

The Azimut 55S is the newest model in the builder’s Sport collection, boasting a triple Volvo IPS-1 system with pods — unusual for a yacht in this size range. She’s built using glass-carbon composite that reduces weight while maintaining strength. Another new feature is a pivoting swim platform that makes it easier to launch and retrieve the tender.
