    what is it?

    My guess is a new Outremer replacement to the 45/48
  2. Another option would be a center mount wheel that pivots from side to side. Then the Bimini could be lower and steering could be done on center line or wheel could be pivoted outboard to allow for bench steering.

    Looks like the love child of a Mac 26 and a hockey skate

    I believe the Stealth Wow raced against the TS 42 in the Caribbean 600 2 years ago. I think the TS was beating them when the Stealth dropped out. That was the crazy windy year so may not tell us a lot. I suspect the Stealth in smooth water will be pretty hard to beat without spending 1 million plus.
  6. I think the whole end plate thing is a bit over stated. There are plenty of beach cats with transom hung rudders that go pretty fast. Any foiling catamaran also has no end plate working for it once it is up on the foils. A center hung center board that is incorporated into an extended loggeron makes a lot of sense to me . I hope this gets tried in a modern performance cruising catamaran.

    I agree on the philo cat. Saw it in the Bahamas absolutely stunning. Completely sailed away from the fleet in the Arc .last time it was for sale it was at a way higher price seems like a deal now. Might be slightly small for Soma’s needs. Not sure there is a better performance cruiser in that price range.

    Really like Avalon and the price is right.. Might want to check out this Schionning G force 51. A bit above your budget but a very nice modern boat. https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2011/schionning-g-force-1550-3491792/?refSource=standard%20listing

    EXCESS Catamarans?

    Maybe it is the Ocean Renegade 52. A Grainger design with a similar layout to the Gunboat 55. I think it looks awesome if that is the case. Would love to see a 42 to 45 version which would be ideal for a couple.

    I think calling the Neel a dog is a bit harsh. The only race result I have seen for the Neel 45 was the 2015 Arc. I know it is only one race but to many sailors surprise the Neel 45 beat both the Outremer 51's in the Arc . https://www.worldcruising.com/content/S635859519434884187/ARC2015 Division IV Multihull.pdf I have not warmed up to the style of the Neel 45 but the 47 is a big step forward compared to their previous boats.

    From the little that has been presented not seeing anything very progressive. With traditional bows it starts out looking a bit dated compared to reverse bows. There does seem to be a serious shortage of performance crusing cats at affordable prices. If they can fill that market it could be sizable .
