Re: Sizzler Speedster
I like everything except the ridiculous amount of space taken by the automatic devices to make the boat button sailing. The boats has not obviously the space for those systems that require a bigger yacht, but as the client as always reason and since it was what he wanted
. Even so it is a crime regarding that beautiful interior:
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.
