Verdier has designed a funky looking hull here and pretty distorted in places. It’ll have stiff competition from the JPK 1030, J99, Ofcet 32, MAT 1070, MMW 33, new Nivelt 34 and the new Beneteau First 35 arriving next year

If it’s fast I don’t care what it looks like! I’m hoping to get a ride on the first UK boat when it arrives. Curiously back when Maxi 72 Ran II started to win everything they put a rating tax on the hollows in the stern. I wonder if the bow and stern hollows of the 3300 also incur the same tax...

Likely it's slow and the distorted hull only favors the rating. That seems to be the trend nowadays.

Add in the Dehler 30 OD to that list too. 

Is interesting that Ofcet is marketing their boat as a v2 now: less displ, more sail area, different keel and water ballast. The J99 looks to be going the other direction with an aluminum mast, and published displ 700# more than the SF3300. 

Hopefully JPK will have more out about the 1030 soon

The Ofcet has been given the sail sizes, keel and displacement it was designed with in the first place. In an effort to get the boat into the lower irc rating band they piled the weight onto the boat and chopped the sails down but found the boat to be sluggish (funny that...). The 99 comes as standard with an aluminium mast but carbon is an option, as is water ballast, as is a symmetric kite setup, as are twin rudders and all UK boats will be sold with the lead fin keel but the L shaped iron fin lead bulb keel is still available. Interestingly the 3300 is available with two sizes of square top main, I guess the idea is either long bowsprit, assymetrics and big main or symmetric, short bowsprit and small(er) main

Absolutely agreed on the Ofcet. The SC version was always listed as lighter than the "race" version. Are those Nigel's pics of the SF3300?

So, judging by the specs, it's a mod looking Bene 10R / 34.7 with backstays.

Big whoop.
I guess if you want a spec sheet that jumps out at you then you should look at Figaro 3s, if you want an irc boat then be prepared for modest specs

Don't forget the market for these boats, day sailors or overnighters with IRC racing capability at a price point.

Interesting that they have ditched the twin tillers, I thought SF owners liked those?
They want the traveler as far aft & wide as possible. The rudder stock still terminates on the deck - so if consumers wanted the option, I'm sure they can revive the raised traveler track for the tillers go pass under. 

The rating optimized deck is starting to show the extreme convergence of the Ofcet 32, JPK1030 & Sun Fast 3300.

The coachroof cutaways are mainly for sheeting angles, tell me how a deck shape affects the rating?
