Today IŽll give you a sailing yacht! It is 90 feet/27.5 m and has a hull where I have combined a low drag at light winds with high beam stability at strong winds. The sharp V-shape seen from above will, at least in theory, help to give planing effects at higher speeds without adding too much wet surface. Boats with wide planing hulls like the W60:s normally has to carry more sails and usually a more experienced and active crew. My hull shape should be more easy to sail, less risk for broaches and still with some speed thrills.
Interior is with a raised wheelhouse open to the salon. Master cabin forward, two guest cabins midships and crew area for four in the stern.
Main engine and generators are in two rooms for safety and she could have a lift keel for shallow waters.
It has matured seven years in my computer, any feedback from you out there, bad or good is both welcome and appreciated!
