Funny how their advertisers make up a fair portion of the list.

Good to see an Australian Multi in the list.

Not sure it's that innovative though.

Since when did 40 footers become "mid-sized" as opposed to "full-sized"? nm, I'm pretty sure I don't want to know. I expect my 25 footer is now "dinghy-sized".

To a 6 ft tall fat bastard a 25 footer is dinghy like, to a gnome there like the Tardis.

And for all you heathen's who don't know

I have 6' throughout the cabin, but it ain't a big cabin! Still, it's the biggest 25' I've ever sailed. Now if I could just figure out how to add a real galley...

All boats are, by definition, 50% too small on the water and 50% too big out of the water... coming across bass straight in 35 knots with 5m waves, my 40' boat definitely felt rather small. Painting the anti-foul on, it definitely feels too big!
