    Notice they drained the front pool for the high speed run.

    Thats cheating.

    Ive always thought there was something strange about having a swimming pool on a boat.

    I love that styling
    I love how it slices through the calm water.
    I think it will not behave so nicely in waves.
    And I think that the swimming pool is a useless overkill which has spoiled the look of the deck.

    P.S.
    Oh, and I love that dramatic music. :)

    Looks like they will try to solve the anchor chafe problem with some kinda massive guard on the bow knuckle and forefoot.

    Better to avoid afterthought remedies with proper design

    a stem nested anchor should have been chosen

    Presumably they station eyeballs on the flying bridge to see where they're going.........

    Why does it always seem to be rolling?
    At every speed... Roll roll roll.

    I can't really see any resemblance to an Aston Martin.

    Guess the pool could be drained to store diesel bladders for longer runs but Dockwise may be better.

    Swimming pool might be ok if you have a glass window below at the bar to it and you have nice girls in bikinis.

    I see very little desirable about the monstrosity, personally and her movement through the water wasn't especially impressive, considering the conditions.
