Too much work! Doesn't appear to be very fast?

Looks like the Stealth Dinghy (think that is right) that Tim Kernan designed when he was in LB.

The video has a good shot of the sail at about the 2:00 mark.  Sure looks like the pic on post #1...

 

Very interesting little boat, I hadn't seen that one before.  I like it!

Flo1 by Aeronamics

maxresdefault.jpg

the sail looks right but everything else is not matching up. flo1 has shrouds and foils. boat in OPs photo has neither. Also the mainsheet runs to a rear traveler on flo1 and the original image above has center boom mainsheeting.

Also in the original photo there appears there may be a provision for a sprit. Is that possible without shrouds?

Yes, plenty of boats do that...Devoti D-One as one example.

Right, it's not a Devoti D-One. @dgmckim, I was pointing out that a D-One has an unstayed rig with an assymetrical spinnaker and sprit, which @thengling was asking if was possible.

Congrats, Johannos! Thx @Editorfor the WHAT IS IT post.

We proudly introduce the newest family member: The Foiling Dinghy non-foiling, the L12 Lowrider. We would like to give you a 10% discount on the L12 as special introductory price. This offer is only valid for orders until November 30th, 2019. Visit our website for more information: https://advancedsailingtechnologies.com/BOATS/LOWRIDER-L12/ or have a look to the brochure attached.

The L12 builds on the very successful design of The Foiling Dinghy with #91 built in October 2019. It's a simple and easy to use dinghy with an outstanding performance. With its wide planing hull it offers sensational and fast downwind rides and still gives you a lot of stability for quick upwind sailing. It's the latest hull design on the dinghy market with a wave piercing bow. The comfortable cockpit with EVA non-skid invites you to enjoy sailing. Thanks to the ergonomic design all controls are within reach. All controls are supplied with high quality hardware and (dyneema) ropes - because performance matters. The powerful rig of the L12 comes with a carbon mast with track and halyard to fit the 7.5m² or 9.5m² North Sails fully-battened laminate sail. Our promise: It only takes 5min to get ready to sail. The L12 is built in carbon reinforced epoxy sandwich applying vacuum infusion technology. This provides the highest quality available on the market and ensures absolute one design, with a hull weight of 30kg. With that weight you can easily transport the boat on your car roof. Made in Germany. Be the first to spread the news and the very first sailing video: https://youtu.be/Tll0Pl77WMk!

Must admit I just don't see the advantage of the reverse bow on a normal dinghy which will inevitably have flared topsides. It means you actually have a blunter entry angle than you would otherwise. Slab sided hulls like cats, canoes or moths are another matter.
