I guess we should start a separate thread as Jack Laurent Giles drew some gorgeous motorsailors from Blue Leopard downwards.
I agree, but can't there be ships who look that fantastic without the long keel?
I know, it's a complicated story with hull stability in broadness, but still, a very narrow yacht, like the skerry cruisers, with kanting keel, wouldn't that be fast and beautiful?
And Laurent giles and Philip Rhodes are both in the hall of fame together with Sparkmann and Stephens, André Hoek other classic yachtdesigners. https://www.hoekdesign.com/sailing-yachts/classic
