Now that's a cool fast boat...plenty of room in the galley for Nordstrom to cook up some barometer soup.

Noticed a couple of things. Do you sit in the swivel chairs aft when you are sailing? The wheel seems a bit far forward.

Looks ok for tropical environ but might be an issue for north of the 45th parallel. No place for a diesel heater.

In one shot of the interior, there is a boss on the floor.. the captain's chair is on a pedestal there and the wheel is on the bulkhead forward, just aft of the two MFD's.. My buddy in Oriental said that it was loaded onto a trailer there at Sailcraft in Oriental a few days ago.

Those are “fighting chairs.” We had them on the sport fishing charters on which I worked.

But then... where are the live well and fish boxes? No one who is serious about fishing skips the live well and fish box!

Kind of similar to the Beneteau Sense series. I guess you could call it a pilot house or hard dodger. Rear opens to the water, minimal up and down. I would say in Fl you appreciate being able to hide from the sun.

Very interesting. Looks very modern and has nice line. I like the ramp on the stern. Personally I would not own a boat like that. Just not my taste in style.

Does anyone see a galley? I see a sink on the starboard side non front of the “fighting chair”, but nothing else.

View media item 26225I like the concept of this boat. Similar elements to some of the ideas I have for my perfect cruiser.

I'm sort of with Brian, but often torn between ultra modern and classic. I'd put more emphasis on the fore deck. But I definitely like the wide flat bottom hulls and plum bow.

Buffett must be a catch and release kind of guy.

Boat has enough power to get to harbor in time for dinner.
