That new GB 55 is really cool. It has this inside/outside helm
and sail handling area are truly indoor/outdoor. If conditions permit
, the moonroof and windscreen can be retracted for open air sailing. When it gets wet, the moonroof and windscreen deploy for complete protection for indoor operations. In all conditions, you get perfect visibility of the sails
and 360 degree range of visibility to the horizon.
I started a thread some time ago asking why aren't there more interior
helms. Apparantly Peter Johnstone the Gunboat founder thinks this is a good idea too. Great minds think alike.

If a GB 66 is about $4.5 mill then how much do you think the 55 will be?
