Ugliest Sailing Yacht
Gliss is OK..even the colour. Cool in the sunshine. She is not ugly in anyway...... Briand is a talented designer. Good separation between the inner and forstay, nice sheerline, good bouyancy foreward., correct rake to the transom for a platform.
But Plenty of details that would make her impossible to live with.
The silly Hidden Anchor ?? Ive battled out of anchorages in gales, hauling anchor ,as the bow plunging thru green water.
That blasted roller boom...mainsail self destructs in a sloppy sea , batten compression tears up the luff , I can never control the leach line and each time I get flashed by lightning I end up disabled and struggle to get the beast on deck.
That Topside Porthole aft of the mast lays directly on the fenders max loaded when being compresed against the dock in a blow.
Just about the same as the rest of the modern yachts, nothing new... but cetainly not ugly..
