Edit Archambault, poor spelling in topic

See link below

no connection, refreshing to see a boat on the water before a rendered image

wholy s... that thing is overweight and underpowered - and it is clear from the pics that it digs quite the hole in the ocean. I am not actually sure it actually sure it doesn't belong in the sportboat anarchy SA/D upwind @26 and downwind @63 - no dice)

Looks competitive with the Corby 25 as a small IRC racer/cruiser at €69K ex-sails. http://blog.boats.co...er-from-france/

While I take a broad-church definition of "sportsboat" I'd struggle to call it that.

we use SA/D upwind + SA/D downwind >= 105 as our definition of sportboat

Wow! I had seen the A27 brochure online and liked the concept. Only now did I note the displacement - very heavy for a 27 foot boat! Our J/27 has a displacement nearly 1000 lbs lighter and was designed a long time ago when there were not the same technologies available that there are today

Like the idea of this boat though. MAke it 1500 lbs lighter and then we can talk - but keep the interior and the inboard - I like those!

My general cutoff is 35+ up and 100+ down as well as disp/length well under a hundred

This one is a total porker..........

I like the looks of the boat, the aft hull flare, windows, cockpit layout, wide side decks and cockpit line console, but you are right about the displacement. I would have expected a number closer to 3200 lbs

Actually - to be an exciting sportboat it should get down closer to 2000 lb and more than half in the bulb - and get a bigger kite
