Yes, but should we care about their opinions?

For my money the top pic says, 'let's have a dinner party' and the bottom pic says 'let's have some real fun and go sailing.'

No quarrel with cat folks, BTW -- I might be one myself one day (if I win the lottery).

SUN TENAREZE - Fast multi-hull cruiser

After six years around the world, from Svalbard (80° of latitude North) to crystal clear waters of the Pacific Islands, from the roaring forties around New Zealand to the quiet “marsas” in the Red Sea, from Asia to Canada, SUN TENAREZE is now for sale.
Whatever the sea conditions, we sailed with lots of pleasure in total safety.
We wish her next owner to enjoy lots of cruises and miles shared with friends.”
The Captain

She's for Sale...very nice looking 84 footer

Could be because the top pic is people having a dinner party, and the bottom one is people sailing?

Nigel Irens has been a leader in round the world record breaking multis for many years now. He also loves traditional schooner type boats. For some real "eye candy":

Nigel Irens Design

This boat has to qualify for one of the finest looking cats I have ever laid eyes on. This is a rare place that he is taking his clients with this inovative boats. Both in mono's and multi's.

I think "you love what you cut your teeth on" is most true.

I cut my teeth on beach cats, boats that like it best with one hull just flying on a close reach. That is my subconscious image of "going well" and a boat that is heeled over looks wrong. I can sail both and know the difference, but my first love is a stiff boat. It is imprinted, that's all, and I understand that.

Form follows function on cat. I don't expect classic beauty; I love a design that the engineer in me sees as sound.

"Beautiful", to me, has lots of wood in it and I like it best when some other person has to slave over it.

The Flounder Theory

Specialists in human behavior and perception say that we are conditioned thru a number of subliminal triggers to judge things as being beautiful or ugly.

Some of these judgments as in finding an attractive mate are even believed by some experts to be inherited as part of our evolution.

No comment on that but I think we are at the stage with the development of “yacht” catamarans, where we are still judging by old school Mono standards and have not developed a universal multi beauty sense.

Just think? ... if a new race of humans were discovered where the women had 3 breasts.

It would take an adjustment in our psyche to find that beautiful…. (with thanks to Gunter Gras )

Hi,
Is this the work in progress of the Fusion 40?

I am looking into these, is there any negatives that you could point out in my search?

Perry 43 is around a similar price but so many are in charter and have 6000 plus hours on them if asking under $400K.
