I agree, I really like the look of these boats. They just look efficient to me. The fact that the rig is small for the hull just looks right. I liked the idea of a square meter boat - measure the sail area and try to get as much boat under it as possible. I wish these boats would have been more popular rather than the International Rule or Meter boats - square meter boats were the original ULDBs.
There is one on yachtworld for $97K.
Never sailed one, but raced against one in Detroit way back in the late 70's. If there was any type of reach they would horizon the whole class.
