Re: Launch of the First Exploration 45 : Jimmy Cornell's New Boat

Boat is cool enough, do not understand using that galley arrangement for an offshore boat. Putting wind generators and other crap above and beside solar panels doesn't make sense to me.

Good luck to her and her crew.

Displacement is 14.1 T.
I don't know what the SA is, but the hull is similar to the Allures 45 and they have given that 100 sq m.

The exterior finish is excellent. Without the use of filler and paint it does show off their workmanship well.
