The 330 (350 with a spoiler available, too) will hit the water next year. No carbon, no lifting keel, price tag about 200kÄ (complete).

In the case of the Comance it is not a matter of pushing the design faraway or not: It is an oceanic race boat. It will work as previewed...or not, meaning the design is right or not.
If it proves to be the fastest boat on Ocean races, namely transats, in very little time all the boats made to win will be like that.
In this case it will not be a design pushed to a limit but just the way contemporary design proves more effective to attain a given goal: The fastest monohull on a Transat and possibly also on the Transpac.
Then it will be the norm and Verdier just the designer that pointed the way....If not, well, it will just be a design pushed to the limits...too pushed to be effective.
