      That is a fantastic profile. I'd love to see that boat on the water.

      I like your design alot. However you do not have the stern section correct. There should ease flow from the boarding platform to the aft deck and into the main cabin. If you had a large crowd on board on a hot day they would want swin of the boarding platform move onto the aft deck with ease and drift inside for a cool drink. Also there is not enough shelter over the aft deck to get out of the direct sun.

      nice I disagree with comment about deck, if you mean the weather deck, then there is enough overhang, more and you cant swing a fishing stick
      On the upper deck all needs is a Bimini on 38mm ss tubeing Nice drean keep at it I would go for one large main with thruster aft as well as forwards in hydraulics
    • lazeyjack
      oh and the main cabin forwards, um not on passage?
      Seeing as you have roll stabilisers, why did you chose a chine over round bilge?
    • lazeyjack
      AND BYH TOMORROW i EXPECT TO SEE THE crane for the tender drawn in ok, ? smiles
    • It could make a beatifull weekend fishingmachine !!!
      When is it going to be build ???

      Aft cockpit is much better for passagmaking, but this is ONE GORGEOUS BOAT.
