Re: Interesting Sailboats

Oceanis 38 a performance cruiser? I do not recall me saying that. And Dehler 38 much faster? Having owned an Oceanis 40, I do not think so. That the Oceanis 38 is not that fast in light wind is not that diffcult to predict looking at the rig but I felt something right in the hull when test sailing her and the magazines seems to agree.

Regarding the 3d renderings and distorsions I must say I tend to agree that the picture seems distorted. I earn my living working with 3d modelling in Solidworks. This is the same program that among other Najad, Nimbus and Nautor uses for instance. There are a lot of parameters you can set when rendering pictures and sometimes with rather silly effects. Might not be anything wrong technically with the picture but for a human eye it does look kind of strange in the front.
