I agree, but nothing that would not be solved by the shipyard at the costumers request. This is an essentially sound boat (hull and sail area) with some inadequate details in what regards a performance cruiser. I guess this will be a semi-custom boat and they will be more than happy to accommodate a client.

I guess that the real deal breaker will be the price that it will cost over an already expensive boat. Of course this is not, as advertised by them, a top offshore cruiser racer but a luxurious performance cruiser like for instance the Arcona 410.



Off course, this one has none of the strange details you mention

Paulo
