Not even close.

Heres one

and another or even the boat on which the TAG is based

But attitude is my favourite.

Re: The sexiest Catamaran ever?

flat water, thats academic value only, except if one is lake or harbour sailor but then you can go nowhere.

Get some chop on these videos.

Re: The sexiest Catamaran ever?

In my unsolicited opinion as a designer, the Tag 60 doesn't hold much appeal for me personally. Then again, some people think Oysters are attractive. Like they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I find the attempt to disguise the discordant fenstration in the hulls with the swoopy paint stripes as distracting as the alien-eye-shaped windshields on the Tag 60. I prefer the Outremer a little more because it is more ordered and has a continuity the other lacks.

Say what you will about the company or the quality of the boats, I always thought Morrelli and Melvin did great service to the Gunboat line.

Re: The sexiest Catamaran ever?

For something new that is sexy, as in Ferrari sexy, this design by Philippe Briand gets my nomination

Ahh.. the Infamous reverse bow.. so effective that since early last century was abandoned by so many.. and today.. abandoned at sea..
I prefer more positive buoyancy up front myself.. and.. beauty as ever is in the eye of the beholder.. Kardashians for the masses..
Audrey Hepburn for the tasteful..

Re: The sexiest Catamaran ever?

Every boat has a designer.
There are lines that appeal to some and not for others.
What appeals to me will not appeal to others in some things. I dont like the look of a Ferrari for example, but love the De Tomaso....

I have no attraction to Sophia Loren but love Sandra Bullock.

The lines of the TAG just hit the spot for sexiness, even though I am not keen on the steering position, yet without that placement, it would not look as sexy....

I also think the Broadblue 550 is sexy for a whole heap of different reasons...

TAG's a pretty enough boat except for that awkward-looking deck saloon - reminds me of a Portakabin hiding in a Polytunnel.

Dog kennel in a Fiat Multipla?

Gimme a bit more time... yep, here's another



Hello my pretty, you from Norfolk too?

Re: The sexiest Catamaran ever?

The TAG60 doesn't quite do it for me aesthetics wise. I'd sell it if someone gave it to me and I'd build something like Kato:
