PCP will become famous soon enough
HEOL 7.4 , Defline 43 movie

Thanks for posting . Yes I know and I love that boat and the concept. Yes I certainly will have a look at it (in Düsseldorf).

Look at the speed potential, 16K without too much trouble:

That's a Martin Defline design and that's the most innovative naval architect I know. I think he is so ahead that has some difficulty in attracting main manufacturers contracts, even if the the French like fast and modern boats his designs are just too radical, to out of the borders.

Take a look at his site. That concept of keel is also used on bigger boats, and if I had the money for it, I certainly would be interested

I will post one of the more conventional boats. From this guy I would not mind
to have a very conventional boat Conventional for him is pretty modern for everybody . I am talking about the Defline 43, pretty much the perfect bluewater cruiser. Fast, safe and comfortable....pity I am not rich
