    Maybe if you could get ahold of info on "Predator's" tenders or interview the crew who drives them maybe you could get an idea. As far as I remember the tenders share a similar bow design to the mother boat (Predator).

    Quite right YachtNews, which is why I mentioned the part of keeping it dry while underway, in the post;)

    What Mulder has a plumb bow?

    As a design trend, it is one on high speed displacement boats with a narrow WL length to beam ratio. On a planing hull boat, there is no operational advantage especially if there is any flare in the deadrise.

    I am sure the guy who built them - Jan Meyer would be only too happy to tell you all about them.

    Ahhh, ok, didn't know they were building that small. In that situation it is one of style, and it's a good looking boat.

    BTW, note: No hot tub.... :D

    LOL :D

    If it had been 25m instead of 14m it might have had one :D

    72m

    The "Nugget" slightly modified. Too conventional?

    72m edition 3

    Yet again, some minor changes to the 72m concept.

    72m x3

    I prefer to put similar designs next to each other, it makes it easier to follow the minor alterations.
    I hope you don't mind me "wasting" thread space.

    Thank You! I’m glad you like my work.

    I must commend you and your exceptionally fine site. I’ve just recently started to look outside the Rendering thread and I’m very impressed to see the huge coverage of the Yachting world, just amazing!

    Yes you should Mike, YF isn't just about the rendering thread! By the way, have you seen Lar's (AMG) renderings?

    It's hard to call something "too conventional" when the vast majority of yachts being built are just that... conventional. Sure, we all notice the ground-breaking designs (which eventually everyone copies and they subsequently become "conventional") but I would have to say the majority of designs that go into production are the conventional ones. ;)

    Kevin, I agree and I think there’s still a lot of designing to be done within the “conventional” segment.

    Some very practical looking designs that can be easily built today. I see you cannot seem to loose the grip on the slightly backward raking glass on the forward superstructures. It is so reminiscent of "Carinthia VII".
