You know, I'm slowly coming around to this type of aesthetics, and starting to see older designs like a LeRouge as being dated. For sure when this styling first appeared I was appalled, but owning a catamaran changes one to appreciate function over form for living, and these styles come with some great functionality. Even beyond that, I'm coming around to the style itself. I had similar change of opinion on the Euro/Ikea interior styles over the years.

Besides, there is plenty of room for hating on style in the catamaran market:

Is this the LeRouge?



If so, then I'm guilty of preferring dated design (though this is a bit over the top). I had not heard of LeRouge before. Thanks for the reference.

So far, the boat that ticks the boxes for me is the FP Helia 44 - or as I like to call it...the HellYeah!



Everything about this boat is right to me.
