Pretty cool, whatever it is. We think it is one half of a catamaran, and you?

Most strange shapes on yachts can be explained as compliance with crazy measurement rules (AKA IOR) but is this just a designers folly?

Exactly, and the other half fell off...

Not a thing of beauty but probably quite practical

You mean overpriced?

No, I meant as in way to much frosting on the cake.  Way too many architectural elements.  Drowning in essence of Batmobile.  Of course the designers and builders like to charge for the extra, so it ends up being overpriced.

Man, I cannot believe people think this thing is ugly. WTF, great proportions, great lines, looks like it would perform fantastically. I love it!

I’ll take one please. As long as I don’t have to steer it using my phone or some other sorcery.

looks better from the back, but way too many sharp corners and and edges - easy to design and cheap to build but ouch.  Too much in the way of architectural styling as Ned says, practicalities for life at sea pretty crap.

POGO 50 with a dinghy garage?  

I like it a lot.  But I'd still get a multihull if I wanted to go crusing and had $1mm+ for a boat.

What’s up with the halyard winch location and stoppers.  You really need to have loaded up high tech stoppers making a bend around the cabin to? You will wither saw grooves in the coachroof or destroy the line.

those fender lines running over the chine will in due course leave quite some traces, will need buffing regularly, could be avoided with little stainless strips but then that might ruin the designer's esthetics, o dear :rolleyes:

Presumably you'd have people for that.

Lines from the mast are in channels.

Yeah, they come out channels, make a 30-45 degree turn go through a stopper, go through another turn and then around a winch.

Anyone figure out how they anchor these reversed bow beauties? Big old stainless platform bolted on the sprit?

If they figure it out, let me know. I have a reverse bow boat with no anchor pulpit or cleats

Well, we know how the big boys do it, an anchor on each side coming out of the topsides...

This one at least has cleats in close proximity to its bow, though I think I see a separate roller on the pulpit.

too funny - I just gained stewardship of an old boat and one of the first things I'm going to do is get rid of the cleats!

Probably cf instead of steel, but it seems to be the plan. For example: https://neoyachts.com/neo-570c/

A tested method among offshore race boats. Doubtful it will result in worn grooves in the coachroof or destroyed lines considering the channels and sheaves.

Have fun with that, I will hold your beer. :)

Those halyard winches will not be workable, plus there will be huge chafe.

Boats of that type usually have a SS gizmo that pops out of the anchor well to one side and lead the chain clear of the hull. They don't work too well.  In theory the anchor will not get used very often so you can get away with pretty ordinary performance.

That bevel on the topsides and skinny foredeck ought to ensure a very wet ride
