Ok, Vendee Globe and all let's have a look at some of the boats (and skippers) to understand what is this all about, I mean regarding boats for the job.

Those hugely powerful boats are a major influence in modern design of cruising boats precisely because they are designed to be easy to sail since they are sailed by a lonely sailor, that has to sleep fom time to time. Easy to sail, stable and fast boats is what all cruisers want...well, not so powerful maybe
