Only one (1!) has been sold and another one has been...

The Gypsy should come out at about the same weight and build time as the KD860 but has much less interior volume, e.g....

Of course I would be happy if Mr Woods would jump in. What is in your view the main differentiator when comparing Sagitta and KD860?

Bridgedeck clearance of the cc29 is 0.6m or 6.7% which is to my knowledge standard. A nacelle reduces this and adds slamming, although not as much as a lower bridgedeck clearance.
