Anchor scoops Innovation 2001 award
First prize in this year's Innovations 2001 competition has been awarded to French
anchor manufacturer Mondiale Plaisance Industrie. Winning entries are to be showcased
at this year's Paris Boat Show which takes place from November 30-December 10.
The winning product, chosen by a panel of trade professionals and specialist journalists,
is the Topgard, a flat anchor with plough-shaped sides. It is a model that performs
like a flat anchor in normal position and a plough anchor when positioned on its
Chantiers Jeanneau, part of the Beneteau group, took second prize for its Convertible
Cabin, which allows users to change two single cabins into a cabin for two,
and back again, in minutes. This five-panel partition is presently installed
on Sun Odyssee sailing cruisers, although it can be adapted for other boats.
