    Shame to be solo with that dance floor

    Very cool boat, but it would be more fun with friends.

    In one shot, you can see two other people on deck, so no way is he out there by himself.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    I can stand at the wheel of my boat on a single tack too. I'd like to see him tack with that Genny...

    I have taken my boat out myself - but I sailed main only.

    Now with an autopilot, I can put up the jib!

    ^ i bet you control all the sails on that boat with the push of a button
    surely the 'wenches' are all electric
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    She was built in 2006, had a refit in 2015, and carries a crew of three. All carbon fibre. For sale for a paltry twelve million euros. The interior is rather slick (at least it has overhead grabrails):









    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    i wouldn't mind going for a sail on one. It would be a real hoot.

    but...

    Why is there no comfortable place to sit on deck? And standing at the helm like that makes for dramatic video but how long do you want to really want to stand that watch in anything less than stellar conditions?

    If you would have a good boat, be a good guy when you build her - honest, careful, patient, strong.

    Remember it will be the captain and crew on the dog watch in a gale. The owner of such a vessel will be below... or will have flown ahead.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    The single-hander would have lots of fun rushing up and down those stairs with no grabrails while doing an emergency repair in a gale.

    This boat would be as likely to be single-handed in a gale as a Ferrari F40 would be used to take the camper and kids out to the wilderness park for the weekend.

    What would all those little lines going through the clutches control? They don't have a fair lead to the winches and I can't think of anything that could be pulled by hand on a rig of that size.
