There, I discovered the gorgeous One 37, designed by famous Argentinian NA Javier Soto Acebal (Soto 40, Soto 30). At first, I couldn't believe it was an 11.2M yacht, since it looks closer to a 12-12.2M. The boat looks fast and elegant at the same time, and the quality of fit/finish extraordinary. No doubt this is a very expensive boat and it shows, both on the exterior and interior.
Here are two excellent videos, showing the boat under sail and at the boat show.

I have posted about it about one year ago when you were not around. The thread has a search motor (not the one from the site) try it and you will find plenty information and even a comparison with the Salona 38 that shares some of the characteristics even if not such a luxurious interior. Well, it is probably faster, I mean the Salona, and much less expensive and that counts too in my book
. The Solaris 37 is a great boat, I would prefer it over for instance a HR 372.
About the boats competing on the ORCI world championship, there are at least one that I had not posted about. For you to find out. It is a very interesting one but much more of a race boat than the Solaris, even if it has also a cruising potential and a relatively good interior.
