Yes, it's red. And drawn by whom? Title inspiration thanks to Chevelle.

Osmosis I guess, Kevin has worked as an Associate of Laurie.

 

Good eye.

I took some time to do some cross checking to make sure my facts were right.

 

I know that kinda thing is frowned upon round here.

 

I'm sorry, won't let it happen again :D :P

Looked like another another sponsor's boat (Farr 280), but then I noticed the wheel, relatively tiny saildrive and enough winches to sink a 28 footer. 

 

Yes, another good looking new boat, but will it ever leave the drawing boat and be affordable?  Artist?  Who cares... give us a price and video of a crew of 10+ putting it to the test, then it will be interesting.

Yeah I second Bob.  That's not a sheer line it's a straight edge.  I don't find it un-appealing, just perhaps a little unimaginative.  The artist made an unfortunate decision using red on the bottom as well as the top side.  It makes the boat look to tall.  Boats almost always look a little strange from the perfect profile.

I think it looks just fine. But to look at a straight line sheer and say "Oh, that's a Davidson sheer" is of a stretch. Lots of designers use straight line sheers today. Nice looking boat. Max hull,depth seems far forward to my eye. The boat has a little tummy.

There are some fast guesser's here... for sure.

Thanks to the "Ed' for putting her on.

As a designer, the most important document when designing a yacht, is the 'client brief'.

This covers appearances, performance, cost etc.....

The more detailed the brief, the more locked in you get.

The less detailed brief allows some wiggle room and a bit more flare :)

"you like more sheer? ahhh, well lets put more in then".,..... Easy as that.

 

No influence with Laurie Davidson and the sheerline, but he is always in the back of my mind..... He remains a legend!

Guessing Davidson looking at the sheerline

What shearline? There is no shearline, the damned thing is flat as a pancake.  These things all look the same, plumb stem no shear, flat bottom, bow sprit.  And who won the TransPac this year, a 1928 design with lots of shear and overhang and seakindliness as evidenced by the fact that she's still above the watah.

So what's Laurie up to these days? Gotta be getting on a bit now so is he still designing or has he hung up his curves and pencils/keyboard?

 

Liking your work KD.

Thanks Flatbag.
Laurie is retired now but still doodles and sketches. He is in his late 80's but still as sharp as they come.
He occasionally pops in to see what is on our boards, and if something comes up, where his help is needed, we would still call him in.

Laurie's drawn an IOM r/c yacht thats going very well here on Australia's Gold Coast. The man might be getting on in years but he's still prepared to have a go at something different.

He showed me the early drawings. Saw the ones we were working on and decided to give it a go:)
Brilliant. Glad she is going well.

Sailed on Another Duchess for a few seasons.

 

Sweet ride.

 

Turned up one day to find a bloke on the dock looking at her. Said g'day as we went on, he asked what she was like to sail. Told him it is one of the nicest yachts I've sailed. He said quite nonchalantly, "That's good to hear, I'm Laurie, I designed her. I haven't seen her till now." After we pick our jaws up, we offered him aboard and a wine.

 

Really, really nice guys.

My word, two of my most favorite yacht designers in the world chatting on this message board!

My 2 most favorite performance cruisers are:  Dibley's Commander 66 (I saw it in Gulf Harbour, NZ, and my jaw dropped) and Perry's Panda 40 Pilothouse (only saw photos, but it makes me drool).

Dumb question probably but what's wrong with a red boat? Just personal taste? Tacky? I kinda of like red when done well. Haven't there been some notable red boats? Wait. Is this a hijack?
