Saw this in Valencia this morning. Has me scratching my head. Not so much what, but why? Also, saw the Alinghi catamaran sitting in a parking lot doing nothing.

Yipes, got beat with an ugly stick early and often. Hardly know where to begin....

"It's 44' and sleeps 30, ain't it grand?"

"The twin helms overlap since the boat's only 6' wide, but aren't they cool?"

"We went with diamond shaped port lights because it's been almost 30 years since anyone used them in a James Bond film."

"E-Boat grey is such an eye catching color, we just went for it!"

Agree. Almost bought a Maxi Dolphin 65 about a year ago and it certainly did not look anything like this - would not have made a bid if it did...

Gorgeous & sleek overall, IMO. Just because it's modern, doesn't make it ugly y'farts!

Not sure the diamond ports are necessary, but certainly different.

I'm a fan. It's not a beauty queen, but its kind of cool in the way that mid-80s BMWs were cool. Ugly, but you want to look at it. It's got character.

No, it isn't modern, it is just plain ugly. The diamond ports are only the beginning. Now pass the eye bleach please.

Done a bit of time on maxi dolphin 65, which I agree is a great looking boat.

I thought that the reverse sheer and and transom were reminiscent in an ugly way. Maybe like something Brenta had done after the pub.
