    I'm looking at the guy steering and thinking did anyone consider the human element in the design. 1.9m headroom is great but someone has to see over it to avoid object related near instantaneous decceleration to zero events (or to non designers, crashes). The sharp styling has left some sharp edges which someone will eventually find while falling over and a tipsy or seasick guest will be over the back in no time.

    I think the best use is to show it off around the harbour on flat calm days while the guests go to the superyacht by Helo? A Kinetic Sculpture, a piece of artwork it may be, but as a tender I feel it falls a little short. Just my 2 cents.

    Somehow it represents the art of selling a weird shaped brick as an avantgarde boat design.

    The more "super" the yacht, the less its passengers seem to want to experience what's going on around them. The "super" tender is a tomb.

    With this tender I don't need the yacht. But may be a dinghy for the tender.

    (seriously considers naming a Bolger designed boat "The Blackadder")

    It reminds me of the WWII Italian human-guided bomb boats. I saw one on display in Malta.
