This apparently is the only yacht in the whole wide world to be based on a Proa, an outrigger canoe used for centuries in the South Pacific. And we should be very gratefull for that. I did mention before that I do like a bit assymetrical designs, gives the whole thing more character but this is unfortunately totally and complete over the top.
I’m sure the designers and calculators have done a good job and from what I remember from my stability-classes a small outrigger does generate a lot of stability for a vessel but I just don’t know in this case…she is strange and to a lot of people she might be ugly but to me she is just utterly strange. Although I do admire the so overrated “thinking outside the box” they did here.
And: call it hypocritical but I wouldn’t turn down a 2-weeks, all expenses paid holyday on her when offered!
