Discovery 50 Catamaran

Was extremelly impressed by the look and feel of the new Discovery 50 catamaran designed by Bill Dixon. Saw this cat at the Annapolis Boat Show in October 2010. Any reports on how it handles in a breeze. Don't like the self furling main (something else to go wrong) A regular main would probably help the boat go faster.
Layout is luxurious for a liveaboard. Comments please

Re: Discovery 50 Catamaran

Saw this at the 2012 Miami boat show. I loved the layout the most of any Cat there but I wonder about the reliability of it. They had both hatches open when I was trying to walk through working on the engines. Not sure why, I guess I should have asked but it makes me wonder.
