    The "look" of the boat.

    These choices never match what I think.
    I dislike these simplistic polls tremendously.

    The boat is too narrow, couldn't care less about the shinny curvy look.
    The narrow walkway down the front of the cabin will get someone killed.

    I can't tell anything about how well it will sail, but it looks fat, therefore probably not very good to weather (but that is a lot of conclusion from no real information).

    Did you design it, or have it designed?
    Why do you care what others think?

    I just want to know what other sailors across the world think of the look of this yacht?
    I did not design it, but built her. She is 60ft, full carbon with a carbon rotating wing mast.
    hydraulic operated dagger boards, main sheet traveller, mast rotation. Mastervolt digital switching system with Li-ion battery bank. 2x 75 yanmars and 14kw fisher panda genny.
    Plus loads of other stuff. I am proud of what I built and just want to know what other feelings are of her! I do know that not everybody likes cats, but this boat is dear to me, as I built the plug, moulds and three of these boats already!

    When you walk into Macd's and see they only have 3 different kind's of burgers, but you feel like steak. Turn around, go outside and find a steakhouse!

    Then why don't you ask how we like the LOOK of it?

    Not enough information given.

    Garbage in, garbage out.

    LOOKS OK, so I voted Yes...does not mean a thing of course as it may be crap construction, design, layout etc or it may be beautifully put together.

    I love the looks of it too, it appears sleek and sexy. That is what sells a lot of boats anyway, regardless of what ever flaws it might have.
