Powerful looking design. Looks like an enlarged RC boat, Big day sailer I guess. The crew is expected to sit at the rail, legs outboard, hanging over that padded lifeline.

Impressive, but not my kind of boat.

Seems wide enough to need twin rudders.

Cheers Richard

I recall seeing a video on youtube about the build. Great concept but frankly I find it a bit ugly.

Didn't they build this to try and break a record of some sort?

Classic modern lines, wide stern and destroyer bow.

Not my cup of tea, like the classic traditional lines

Nice, been seeing some boats in Los Angeles / Long Beach getting ready for the TransPac race. Pt Fermen Los Angeles to Honolulu.

One giant Cat has been training for weeks.

That's a widebody, who needs catamaran?

The Youtube link description says:

No big waves only 10 knots Amazing the 100foot Wally Tango
Maybe that's why most sailboats don't look like this one?

Single handing a pretty big boat!
that was my first thought. I have my hands full with something 1/3 the size sometimes. Funny how its not my thing but I would love a ride. But, it looks like a sailboat, cant say that about many modern designs.
