Randomly had this video come up and hadn't seen anything on here relating to it... But what the fuck... It's certainly different... Not really sure what it's trying to be...

Way more expensive for something not as good? Maybe some cool ideas, I'll give them that... A lot of what the fuck, and a whole lot of jerking themselves off in this video.

Cabins in the bows... Have these guys lived on a boat before?

Sails, multiple large diesel engines, huge battery system, a LOT of carbon fibre, air-conditioning... Seriously this must be the least environmentally friendly boat I have ever seen.

I posted it in the "ugly boat" thread...

Cabins in the bow are obviously for staff (they are disposable and provide extra protection as a crumple zone)!

It would make a cool movie prop but I can't think of another use for it...

I guess it will "perform" fine as fancy house boat...

Certainly shows that money and common sense don't necessarily go together. The real question is who in the world would buy this creation the second time. Maybe, if you enough money, resale is not a consideration. I'm a bit jealous of anyone who can actually afford to do this sort of venture.

My Bad, I actually did a site search for it and came up dry.

Ewww - that thing looks like it ought to have a grand piano on it....  Probably wouldn't even notice the weight, that is if it will actually sail at all.

I don't see why you all are upset.  It is a great example of a condomaran suitable for the med and hugging the coast while going from casino to casino.   Put a helipad on it instead of the mast and you got something.

Sliced through the waves? More like pounded them into submission. Funny too, only about a min of the vid was of it under sail. 

idk if you look at the wake it is under power as well.

I'm surprised they even decided to show the sails - although getting the rig package off a Jeanneau 389 probably saved a few Euros....

To be fair...the interior design WAS pretty nice. 

Really?   it looks pretty pointy and sharp to me.  I posted in the SA thread that it looks like it was designed by Quentin Tarantino for a sequel to Death Proof.

By design, the styling was pretty nice.

I won't agree on layout etc, it's surprisingly non-functional for such a huge and clunky boat (for it's size).

But I guess it's target audience isn't any of us.

I assume it's for people who own a boat like this, but fancy themselves in a bond movie.

Nailed that call. Just saw the video walk through. Piano and all.

Not my cup of tea but I’d rather see that than the money in a bank account. 
Criticise all you like but a heap of people were employed and families fed.

Looks like an awesome boat to hang out on when moored stern-to the quay in Ibiza.   When I last cruised the Med, the boat I was on lacked a good spot to place a grand piano, and the experience really suffered for it.    :P     

I don't think I'd want to sail it any further from shore than I can swim, however.   The articulated, powered doors and windows....how long will they operate smoothly after a few thousand wave-poundings and a few months of continuous salt spray? 

But, kudos to the designer for thinking outside the box.   Waaaaaay outside the box.   I hope its new owner is really happy with it, he certainly has a unique craft!

The trimaran platform just gives an absurd amount of deckspace if you go for the condo style... I have to say the Neels look pretty comfortable. I've just heard too many dodgey things about the build quality.  Maybe if someone could balance the seakindlyness and the piano?  Piano below the waterline?  IDK...

The good old "no compromise", that's a pet peeve of mine, I always roll my eyes and move when I read/hear it! Makes me want to scream "everything's a compromise you numbnuts!"


But yeah... that doesn't seem like the main feature of the design!

You'd think they would be selling some other features of the boat... Any other feature really...

Holy non-existing sailtrim, lol.

I've never seen a mainsail with that much draft. I realise it's a furling main, but I've never seen a mainsail with that much draft in the foot of the sail and what's with the untrimmed headsail? Lol again.

 

I just went to their Instagram, and the text following the picture says everything.

The Hanstaiger X1 offers no compromises. Boat owners now have the option of enjoying exceptional levels of comfort without sacrificing speed or performance. The X1 is also a true hybrid, offering the option of removing the mast/rigging and opt for a full motor yacht experience.

Not defending it but for goodness sake, both sails are pretty much feathered - did you spot how much the boom projects aft of the clew!

Either way whoever is trimming those sails, particularly for a photo-shoot, needs to be cast ashore and left there indefinitely.

I noticed this on the listing:

- Submarine style anchor system

To me that means a shitty anchor mounted on the stern below the waterline, to be used only in rare circumstances. 

Also does that listing mean its not sold yet? That would be interesting because I can't imagine anyone buying it.

I would buy it.  They'd have to come down about 4.5 Million.  I'd park it somewhere I like to visit-makes a nice condo.  If you think of it as a houseboat instead of a sailboat you get much less irritation.

The problem is that it is a sailboat...
