Bob - I think Chris (the YM tester) mentioned in the video something about the way the carbon deck is joined to the hull, then hand-sanded to give it that chamfer. Can't recall the exact details, but assume it's partly aesthetic and partly a function of the deck-hull join design.

Agree with Paulo that it needs a toe rail, speaking as a life-long bowman. On the other hand, if I owned such a boat I'd hire a professional bowman to go forward in inclement weather to deal with anything foredeck related.
