Re: I found my next boat

Well, that's different!

However, if the rest of the design is as well thought out as saying that the "reduced" air draft of well over 100 feet will fit under "most bridges", I shall not be ordering one.

Another "spectacular" yacht that will never make it past the drawing board.

Another "concept" yacht, by someone who has never designed or built a real boat.


Just like all the futuristic "concept cars" at major motor shows which never see the light of day.


It's all a big "w*nk" for publicity purposes.
Here's another on:

https://inf.news/en/design/15ce48e4d...3b7dc6fdd.html
"Designer Steve Kozloff is already a member of the yacht design field. He has released some very spectacular concept designs, which also brought him an international reputation, but he has not been launched as a real boat."

Re: I found my next boat

I am just now in a BIG marina something I try to avoid. Lots of big power boats.

I was struck by just how fugly some of these contraptions are.
