Yacht design and production is a product of demand. The tech has reached a close peak. The construction is financially motivated. Unless they start building more marina's, no thanks!
Excuse me, sir, but the tech has far from reached its peak and hopefully never will. I mean, what did catamarans (for example) look like 50 years ago?
Think hard on that for a moment please.
I contend the drive for innovation (aka the muse) doesn't limit her grace like that.
It would also encourage a renaissance of design and innovation the likes of which the boating
world has never seen (consider the car 100 years ago) as well as new thinking about life on the water (mid-ocean docks, destinations, etc...).
Last I checked, the spirit of the sea and the spirit of freedom were closely related cousins. By freedom here I mean, free access to all, like open software
. The likes of which are providing you with an internet
ironically allowing the possibility of this conversation.
