Sailer's Powerboat - Your Thoughts?

Here is a new article on a new "Sailer's Powerboat".

I like what I see - but also would like a number of things different in the design. Are there other people out there that are considering moving to a power boat?

What is your ideal boat?

Here is a brief excerpt from the article below:

"Top speed is over 11 knots on just 75 horsepower.

Fuel burn at 9 knots equates to just .88 litres for each nautical mile or a bit better than 4 miles to the US gallon. Contrast that with the average recreational trawler of similar interior volume that has hell to make 6 knots at that fuel burn.

Drop the speed to a bit over 7 knots and fuel burn drops to .66 litres for each nautical mile or 7 miles to the US gallon–a number that will make the boat not only far more economical than any recreational trawler out there, but also cheaper to own than just about any offshore sailboat of the same volume.
Here is the full article:
