I know what you're saying, but I do think that's a bit harsh if you're talking about some of the newest designs.. in fact I think many of them will sail quite fast, an ongoing debate is how safely or comfortably they'll do so in rough/oceangoing conditions.

For the 95% of we boaters who rarely venture far from sheltered waters, anchor every night and stay put in a forecast gale these floating condos probably do the job - and I suspect to some extent they are in fact built around some preconcieved 'needs' that the market must be saying they want.
