Exactly what is the definition of 'day sailer'?

This thing is schizophrenic.  Is it a day sailor?  Those outriggers are gonna be pretty unfriendly at a lot slips.  Who wants to deal with that shit when docking and pulling in and out of a slip?  If it's a day sailor, why the pinched topsides that removed all the deck?

If it's a racer, why do we have worthless LED 'tail lights' and pedestal lights to look cool?  Where the fuck are the life lines?

And while we're on the topic of LED's.  Who thought that was a good idea?  indirect LED lighting is one thing.  But bright red LED strips that are gonna confuse the fuck out of other boats that are trying to figure out your heading?  W.T.F.  Maybe they're just going with a masthead tri-color, but you'd think a boating company would know something about making navigation difficult for others.

Make up your mind guys.  You can't have a no-compromise racing machine with foiling and then call it a day sailer and stick some led lights on it for the 'pretty'.

Why can't these boat companies just make up their minds and figure out what they're trying to sell?

Well don't buy one then. They will teach them a lesson.

However why does a 'Day' sailor need lights at all?

That is the most ridiculous rendering of a sailboat one can imagine:

- sitting (at anchor?) in dusk. At least it is in the water, but that is about the only thing they got right

-  immediately moving inside

- showing the interior at length, looking outside at the clouds (time of day seems to have changed)

- showing seats with safety belts...

- not showing the boat sailing at all, no rig.

- the movements in the video are shaky. Not quite as bad as Clean's productions, but it moves way too fast.

Fucking amateurs and we learned zero about the boat.

Pininfarina. Well no wonder it looks like the inside of a 1990s Ferrari.

Love the absolute bollux structurally. Filled with wasted material, useless structurally inefficient surfaces to nnowhere, major loadpaths with no path...vaporware literally in that mist at the end
