There are a number of questions that this one might bring up, but there really is only one that matters.

OK guys, let's take inventory here:

 

- Cheap to build

- Wheel steering

- Inboard engine

- Roller mainsail

- Very simple to sail

- Roomy for it's size

- Trailerable

 

Yeah, it probably sails like a pig, so a furum dedicated to racing will trash it. But this is exactly the type of boat that would get people onto the water and introduced to sailing, so for that reason I LIKE it (as long as none of my friends see me sailing one).

It seems sensible all around and does not look like a plastic RV.  Like J24 said, the cooler is of sufficient depth, so that means they have thought of all the important things.  

 

Nice.

Seems a pretty useful daysailer/weekender to me.  80% motoring/20% sailing on a nice comfy reach.  A lot of summer fun to be had, I'd guess.  

 

The deep cockpit with the built-in step down is curious.  Seems you can only get laid on starboard tack.  Which makes sense from a rules perspective.

As Mr Perry stated "I like it". So do I. It's just the thing for someone who likes to potter about on boats. Go fishing, Go for a sail, do a bit of both, and, it doesn't look half bad either. I'd go for it, probably along with the rest of the majority who have no interest in bendy foils  and kevlar underpants..

A sweet little boat!

 

A true multi purpose boat:

 

1) Weekend Cruiser: Cabin looks good size for several nights aboard. Sail downwind or on a reach when you have the time, when you don't then motor. Always motor to weather as gentlemen don't sail to weather anyways.

 

2) Daysailor: Big cockpit, only one sail to tend too, no pesky boom to look out for and no sails to clean up at the end of the day.

 

3) Inshore fishing boat: Motor to your fishing grounds. Troll around all day burning zero fuel. Easy to vary your speed with the roller sail. Catch your fish and motor home. Perfect!

 

Just don't take her anywhere near a race course! :lol:

Dunno.  Might make an interesting boat for the RC.  Throw a few deck chairs back there, a cooler full of your favorite adult beverage, a cabin to get out of the weather, etc.  Sure looks a lot more civilized then some of the RC boats I've been on.

 spinnaker is upside down?

 

I find these concept not stupid at all especially when you see the number of people sailing in the summer with the engine running and only the genoa deployed...

This is a great boat. There are so many boats in this size range that are trying to be bigger boats and therefore compromise on just about everything, making them uncomfortable and impractical. This thing you could enjoy sailing, fishing, putting around, and even gunk holing. The cockpit is large enough to have a tent setup for more comfortable cruising.

I like the boat myself. It looks like a fun way to get out on the water for a weekend. No stress sailing with guilt-free and economical motoring, what more could you ask for in a simple little boat?

A sweet little boat!

 

A true multi purpose boat:

 

1) Weekend Cruiser: Cabin looks good size for several nights aboard. Sail downwind or on a reach when you have the time, when you don't then motor. Always motor to weather as gentlemen don't sail to weather anyways.

 

2) Daysailor: Big cockpit, only one sail to tend too, no pesky boom to look out for and no sails to clean up at the end of the day.

 

3) Inshore fishing boat: Motor to your fishing grounds. Troll around all day burning zero fuel. Easy to vary your speed with the roller sail. Catch your fish and motor home. Perfect!

 

Just don't take her anywhere near a race course! :lol:

 

= a duck  ;)

That spin does look like it is upside down.  And that pic is even on the espace vag web site!

 

I think the pics of the Japanese version make it look like a nicer boat.

I think I saw a similar boat in Dana Point harbor. It looked like a fishing boat (a small lobster boat style runabout, maybe 25' or so), with a double-stayed wishbone rig on it.  Crazy looking thing, and not old.

Dunno.  Might make an interesting boat for the RC.  Throw a few deck chairs back there, a cooler full of your favorite adult beverage, a cabin to get out of the weather, etc.  Sure looks a lot more civilized then some of the RC boats I've been on.

Good point! I stand corrected she would be right at home on the race course as a RC boat!

Suppose it depends on the price.

If it is expensive- probably doesn't suit many buyers.

If it's cheap -folks will find a use for it.

 

It is different.

Its one of those hot new Bi-Symmetrical equilateral spinnakers. Avoids embarrassment on the foredeck because it doesn't matter which way up it goes!
