i don't think "innovation" is high on the list of desireable design features for the typical mid to high end cruising sailboat buyer...
Cruising sailors are (mostly) pretty conservative when it comes to what they want in a boat.
and with good reason - their life can depend on the boat.
how much innovation do you want in the next airliner you board?
changes tend to be slow evolutionary modifications from something known to work well..., not radical departures
