Regarding how goods and fast the boat will be, well, let's wait for some racing results or at least comparative testing. I am not impressed with what I saw till know (Yacht.de sail test).

This does not mean that the boat will not be a great performance cruiser just that it is not what it looks, I mean, almost a racing boat.
