    Hmm., First thing that comes to mind is what happens below the waterline?
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    The bow so far out of the water is uncomfortable. Fix that and add some shear and it is really not bad. At least there is deck space.

    Nick, I'm guessing that the underbody is akin to a hard-chine canoe, or one of the old-style Piver plywood catamaran hulls.

    Kinda flies in the face of the wave-piercing hatchet bows we've come to know.

    I'm sure the Veuve Cliquot umbrellas are lovely.

    I like the palm trees on the after decks. Nice homey touch.

    Paint the flat bits grey, mount a couple of guns would make a fine fast patrol vessel.

    I like it.

    The stacks are distracting...I’d simplify them, and make them less dark.

    The solar panels are a nice "eco-friendly" design touch.

    I'm impressed by that "plank on edge" design concept. Wonder how well it'd work out in reality?

    It looks remarkably like the "iYacht", the late Steve Job's "Venus".

    While it shares some of the same design features, I wouldn't go so far as "remarkably like". But that's just me.

    There's definitely noticeable differences for sure.

    Will it actually get built? They may already have a victim lined up to have justified doing the rendering.Of course if he has an eye test due-that may change.

    <lol> - I'd be tempted to debate whether it is an improvement, but maybe save that for a later time.

    Renderings seem to be done at a very early stage in the concept development, so a pretty picture is more indicative of a "throw it against the wall and see if it sticks" effort rather than a "we got a live one!" development.

    Hurts the eyes.
    "Reason and facts are sacrificed to opinion and myth. Demonstrable falsehoods are circulated and recycled as fact. Narrow minded opinion refuses to be subjected to thought and analysis. Too many now subject events to a prefabricated set of interpretations, usually provided by a biased media source. The myth is more comfortable than the often difficult search for truth."

    Doesn't leave much wake. I like that, but it's so skinny it looks like it wouldn't take much to lay it on it's side.

    I gotta say I've seen worse. I guess that's not exactly high praise - but it's not that bad - maybe even reaching OK.

    Geographically-appropriate deck-scaping is the new thing, doncha know. One simply flies in the right greenery with changes in latitude and season.

    Maybe I'll start a business to provide this service? Maybe Joe and Rene will help? We could call it, " Bloom Service!"

    Look, someone built a fibreglass appartment block on top of an old J-class hull.

    Hey MMD, give those designers a break. French curves are expensive.
