    A very interesting design of a 14m yacht I think. It reminds me some boat of Manfred Curry (Sailing campion of the 1930s) like aria (I-22 m2 racing skiff o r Z-skiff 20m2 "Wal") designed from Benhaceg (Hungary-Balaton). In the 1980s in germany there was a prototyp (5-6 units made) of a litte keel-boat (7m) called Cirrus, similar to the I and Z-boats with wing mast.

    What do you think about this interesting racing ship?

    Best regards pagodino

    So beautiful, just the work of the hull/deck is exquisite.
    The one on the trailer is also quite superbe.
    Thank you Pagodino for showing us these treasures

    the top image from your link looks like faked ie. computer manipulated...

    it was mentioned in this article that this boat is intended for smooth surface sailing and i do not doubt that..
    they build a wave-piercing bow but the bowsprit is definitely not intended to hit the surface once and still mounted very low...
    i mean - this bowsprit ist just too weak dimensioned.. it will crack to splinters in the first wave..

    then some other thing confused me:
    'bat wings' and 'stingray sides'
    are these two words for one and the same thing or do i just don't see the other?

    looks good, but it is practical yet proper dimensioned?
