Cool boat building. I have no design brief or any details on this new design beyond: LOA 38'9", beam 11'3", LWL 27'6" and with the centerboard up, it draws 3'6".
But I will predict this is an evolutionary design post 'daysailer' phase/fad. Simply; the contemporary big daysailer concept meets the coastal cruiser of the past.
Still able to sail for a few hours without a lot of fuss or take a couple or small family off for a few days. Not a globe girdler and not a tricked out SOT (Spirit of Tradition) racer that you'll never spend a week on.
I can relate to this idea as the vessel is within inches of my 'cruiser/racer' built 62 years ago. It will be faster (until it catches a lobster buoy warp on the predicted exposed prop), and handier to sail and likely a bit less commodious below.
I'm lucky to live near a custom boat design/builder. What they build is never boring.
