I have a copy of 'Big Fish' on my book shelf, a favourite.
The boat itself I'm not so sure about. Do designers ever go out cruising in places with less than calm weather?
The main tender launching system looks very impressive but the crew are going to have fun trying to retreive the tender while she's pitching and rolling in rough seas. Trust me, it happens.
There is no deck area that I could see that has any sort of sheltering from the wind. On long cruises you may still want to relax outside but the wind can howl. A bit of of a wind break is most welcome.
The interior is very tasteful but very open plan. On the bridge there are no handholds except for the wheel that I could see, also no where to place a cup of coffee. On a 5000 mile passage its amazing how much coffee and soda gets drunk on the bridge.
In the galley there does not seem to be any fiddles on the counter tops to stop plates fly off. There are very few flat areas to lay plates out for the service of 10 guests. I hope there's a big walk-in fridge/freezer down below because the little ones in the galley photo wouldn't last a week.
In the guest area, stainless steel bannisters with open glass coners will become a hip surgeon's retirement fund! The gym equipment and free weights don't seem to be held down by anything but gravity. It's not much fun running after a running machine in heavy weather.
Other than those little quibbles, she seems a well built boat with a purposeful look. Well done Carl and the team for some stunning photos.
