Plumb stern/bow, relatively flat hull under the water line, huge beam, limited cross section on the T-keel, coffee table rudder, and a rather large amount of real estate (sorry I don't know the term) from the water line to the deck. pictures abound of what I am talking about.
I looked it up when the topic came up. Very modern looking boat with a very wide and wing shaped cabin that smoothly rises out of the foredeck and then smootly drops towards the stern. Would not surprise me if there was some aero effects going on
