    Artnautica 58 is for it size and stated purpose is the best designed and built boat I've seen. All top notch at every detail. Great to study it for design afficianados.

    Wondering what price she goes for.

    I note that from the Hull#5 build pictures, this is a very different hull shape than the FPB series of yachts. Very flat over much of its length, a bit more like a planing hull. I would imagine it could pound quite a bit in rougher conditions. The transom is also very different, cant help thinking it would hurt the efficiency somewhat. The hull shape is likely due to trying to get good inherent stability given no stabilizers on board by default ?
