A ruiser. It's neither one thing nor the other.

 

The hull shape looks good but someone got the wrong deck plan schematics during construction.

Someone with the wrong priorities. They have flags, sails and a dodger but no mast...

I like the way the staff in the sailing cockpit have no direct way downstairs into the grown ups area. Keeps things civilised.

Did they steal those wheels from a 30'er?

If they forgot the mast I hope they remembered the keel bits below the waterline....

Easy peasy. It's Brent Swain's latest origami plastic boat design.

Tough Crowd.

Me Like. This would be an awesome rum racer. Take out the table and it's got plenty of room for the Zero and Kites.

And without shots of the rig and underbody no one can comment of performance.

It might be called Margarine 70, but did it get built with the Clipper 70 tooling? Sure looks like it.

Mazarin build THE Clippers:

 

"The Clipper Race fleet reached Qingdao on March 10th, 2016. Twelve 70ft racing yachts were all built Mazarin, a Chinese Shipbuilding company whos technology and production proved they were up to the challenge. The boats have been complimented by both the race teams and media, and the company is looking to expanded its reach in the sailing world.

The modern German shipyard in Qingdao is building yachts between 22m and 50m in length and using state-of-the-art vacuum infusion methods. The Pirate 72 sailing yacht was produced by Mazarin, for the Clipper fleet and the company believes it will play a leading role in the Chinese sport-leisure sailing boat market. The combination of German design, shipbuilding experience, quality materials and good craftsmanship results in a well built yacht that is both reliable and long lasting. "

Clipper 70 by Tony Castro with teak or teak-like deck for private ownership.

 

So, I got it back at post #30. Tony Castro designed the boat for the Clipper races. Mazarin builds them, and is trying to sell them outside the Clipper series with I'm guessing a nicer interior.

 

You could tell it was the newish Clipper 70 by the mast location, mainsheet track, wheels locations, stern, chine, and the Chinese lettering was a clue because they are built it China. My free T-shirt says that it uses the same keel and rudders as the Clippers too. :)

Not to inaugurate a pointless s-storm, but I think all these sort of fat-assed Kardashian hulls, are like her, foolish, greed-driven fads and as noted, "fugly" as a steaming doogie in the local pool...but that is me, just me meager view of big boats.

They create lots of internal volume for designers to feature big spacious cabins. Which is what the cruising market want.

Interesting. First, I thought that outfit only made powerboats, but guess not.

 

FWIW, I bought a fitting rated for 6500 lbs, Chinese, it failed at less than a third. Fortunately, it did not happen offshore and only delayed me, did not ruin the boat or crew. I am not a fan of Chinese work, and a boat might be scary; great people but...
