There is not nothing irrational about that . I have saw the first Cigale 16 in Paris boat show....and it was just perfect. As you said, contrary of most big production boats, that look like floating condos, that one mean business all the way... meaning passage in comfort, cruising in comfort and living in comfort. A true sailing/living/dream machine.Good taste dreams are not irrational
