    $6M is not enough for that end result? :p

    Seriously, won't be easy for the designer to get all of the money he claims, imo. The lawyers say he had a friendly relationship with the person who has commissioned the design, and not every aspect was defined through the contract.
    In addition, we could see that the yacht was not well-accepted by the general public, so Job's familiars are now probably asking themselves what is her actual resale value. And they will blame it on the designer, should they find out it's below their expectations...

    Will be an interesting story to follow.

    Indeed.

    However, this is applicable for every boat. The greater the lever the more influence there is on seakeeping.

    As an alternative to a Phillippe Stark collaborative design (never a yachtsman's designer) for a yacht I personally would like to see the results of a Pagani collaboration.
    That could be either a very interesting yacht or the first LRPB to make 100knots

    Any estimates on what the cost of the naval architecture work was? I assume there was a naval architecture firm involved in addition to the "designer".

    Define "naval architecture" in this context?

    A boat of this size, for 'naval architecture' isn't really much, about 50-100hours at most.

    The details, from the naval architecture: mechanical, electrical, structural, outfitting etc, in production drawings, and detail 'design', is where the hours go. For this 'size'/type would be circa 15,000hours.

    So long as the boats satisfies rules/reg's, if the client wants it pink and fluffy and made from Switz cheese, then that's what they get.

    Taste doesn't come into it. Since it's very clear...money can't buy taste :eek:

    There are no published photos of Venus' transom platform and side doors deployed.
