Paulo I think the whole idea was to show off the polished and detailed hydraulics the way a hot rod shows off its engine.

Still I agree it's wasted space. It would have been straightforward to design a master stateroom with a removable interior around the hydraulics.

I'm taken with the look of the boat, that she's specifically designed to be singlehanded easily, and that she's designed to be so quick and responsive under sail. The design brief was for a 60' laser!

Would love to get some time aboard her.
