Is the stern canoe shape?

Very attractive looking vessel. From the pic, it looks like the stern is canoe shaped. If so, what are the advantages of such a design?

The advantage of a canoe stern is that it presents less area to following seas and breaking waves. The fine shape of the stern allows moving water to flow past the boat rather than drive it forward.
