Sometimes I post here information about boats that I don't like and this is one of them. The boat seems to have made quite a stir on UK (it is a British boat), it is very expensive and advertised as a bluewater boat. I don't doubt that it is well built but I wonder if Tony Castro could not have come up with a nicer design. I find the boat really ugly.

It seems that it sails well, but it was really necessary to come up with so narrow lateral deck passages or have the sailors so high on the boat and so far away from the gravity center?

But I guess that if many British like the boat you can like it to.

As a new video test arrived to the net, I will post it as the other test and more information.
