Nice, but really doesn't do it for me.

Thats really fine.

Its always a personal opinion, however if the the figures turn out like I think they will, its gonna be one sleek fast luxurious boat that will take a little matching.

But then you talking to someone who prefers a TAG over a Gunboat.

Re: The Ultimate Multihull

It just looks to me like it would need powered sail handling systems. So would basically need a genset running 100% of the time while "sailing". Kind of like the Sydney-Hobart boats.

What's wrong with the Neel 45? Why do you have to get all greedy?

Its 65 foot. Everything is going to be electric. Let me rephrase that, even if it doesnt need it, it would be on my boat.

A 'large' personal Cat or Tri to me is 50 foot give or take a little. This is a massive vessel. It took me by the family jewels because is everything I would want on a multi hull, EXCEPT the top deck steering (I would have an opening cockpit made)

Give me bad figures on the tests, and I will hate it.

Re: The Ultimate Multihull

The Neel 45 is a bit more of a rounded window line than the 65. I think it looks like a Cylon. I'd definitely want to attach a red LED on a track for that extra cylon look.

(If this makes no sense, you're geek factor isn't nearly high enough)

They're actually remarkably similar. The Cylon's just a bit more menacing.

Well that proves it then. The Cylon is really a Knight rider.!
