Esimit Europa 2 was crowned the best Maxi class yacht in the world from a competition of 49 boats up to 45 meters in length.

Simcic's 30-meter vessel, sponsored by Gazprom, won all four of its races and took first place in its division.

The other winners were Germany's Claus Peter Offen and Y3K in the Wally class; John Williams and Ranger in the J-Class and Otto Happel and Hetairos in the Supermaxi division.
