Her name is Shangrila and she looks like a really sleek, massive and long L47. Of course, the longer a boat is, the better she looks, unless you add lots of upper decks like many of the newer designs. That's plain ugly, to my eyes, although I understand perfectly why some like the utility.
I agree

Re: Which Catamaran do you Think Looks Best

For my money (if I only had enough of it). The Chris white Atlantic 42 is one sexy boat.

It looks good except I hate those oval/eye-shaped windows that FP uses on their boats. I know that's a trivial reason not to like a boat, but it's hard for me to get my mind around that. I much prefer the windows on Leopards. The FP Helia also has a very square, boxy looking appearance. Inside, however, it is very classy looking.

Re: Which Catamaran do you Think Looks Best

Form must follow function, particularly on multihulls. Tradition has no place; if it sails well, it looks good. If it sails poorly, it is bad. Even more than monos, it is far to easy to ruin a boat in the quest for a dashing profile.

Re: Which Catamaran do you Think Looks Best

Aside from the boat in my avatar, I really like the look of the Tiki range of Wharrams.

Re: Which Catamaran do you Think Looks Best

Very interesting, how long is she.

A couple of sister CATs of my Conser sail at over 30 knots... Not sure I got the ba#ls or experince to ever try it though .. At least not on purpose !

Where have you sailed your Avantar?

I always thought the FP Bahia 46 looked good.
