One of the driving forces behind this concern died recently, delaying their attack on the US Boat Show circuit.

One of their daysailors is for sale in Seattle, if that helps:

Holy crap! That 46 has a tiller. At what size vessel does the tiller become hard to handle? Or does that not matter?

That defines overhang. Fantastic joinery!

At which point the vessel in question becomes a poweryacht whose owner had enough in the way of good taste to disguise his abomination as a sailing vessel. (Note how I didn't attach a smiley face...)

There's a trend the other way as well. Wally's Loft Concept is all about not decorating the interior, keeping it as minimal as possible. I've never been bellow in a Wally but from what I can tell from their pics, these designs are far too bare and sterile -- sort of like the loft apartments they're named after.

Having said that, here's a Wally I could live with (I hope the Dashews are getting a cut for bringing the destroyer style to the forefront. I'm so tired of megayachts that look like they can do Mach3, when they can barely get over 20 knots even when everything is just so):

Just give me a Hinckley42 with the sail area and displacement of a J42. (Jboats.com lists the J42 as a current model. It is, however, discontinued, as they now offer the mighty J133.)

Open 60s and other offshore racers that size have massive tillers. I'd guess that it's more a function of how the cockpit area is being used than the size of the vessel.

Thats actually a good question, are there any multis out there that are built to this kind of standard (fine joinery, attention to detail type of build)? Most of the multis I've seen or been on look more like a low rent Florida beach bungalow (tacky 70s apolstery and formica everywhere) than a refined vessel. Maybe I just don't look at the right multis

Dictated, but not read.

Am I reading things right, or is that a 100' daysailer?

Sapper,
Good point I'm sure.
Most multi's are built by South African cookie stampers or the bendy toy conglomerate that are responsible in the same way for the death of the Gozzard (my absolute favorite mono, still in production) like graceful beauties that could be / should monohulls. Instead we get cookie cutter boats that are more Chevy than Cadilac, and none the Buick of my grandfathers day - not a bad thing, my G'fathers Buick broke down a lot, got about 10 mpg and was a brick to handle,

This being a custom 100 foot 'er I'd say it's in the same range as a Yapaluka 70, or Sunreef 74, or the Matrix 76. All of them just as elegant, albeit different than this one. To answer your question, and keeping apples compared to apples - Yes, the make Multi's with the same level of perfection in every detail. Money talks for mono's and multi's just the same.

Here's a Sunreef 74, pictures are better than words, just remember different doesn't make better, or worse
