    The only thing missing in your '90s design is the quintessential teardrop windows. ;)

    50m concepts

    I’m going to stay in the 50m range for a while and making it easy on my part by shrinking some of the 72m designs, for starters...

    Dutch job?

    By using the fly bridge and windows section of the 72m sailboat concept in combination with a slightly altered “C-pillar” and hull opening, the previous 48m design, could perhaps be one of those Dutch jobs?

    Hi Kajan,
    I really like your style. ... And I honestly believe you missed your vocation not working as a designer, since I see a lot of professionals turning out less appealing lines .... however as Henning stated before, you should really take the one or other concept a step further and develop e.g. the general arrangements (not necessarily to the plumbing though ;D) .... I really like your 50m concept above, but my favorite by far is the "Black Knight" from post #25 ...........thanks for sharing.

    Thanks atomare, you're too kind!
    For some of my favorite concepts, I do have G.A’s, or parts of. The problem is that, some of the great new solutions end up in the G.A. design and the not so new and great doesn’t, making the G.A. half complete and not interesting enough to end up in this forum.

    It takes me a lot longer to make the G.A. compared to a new exterior design, and since no one comments regarding the G.A. for a particular design, it’s an easy choice to move on to a new design rather than the G.A.

    Maybe I should start to describe some of the solutions I have in mind for the concepts in the absence of a complete G.A. or posting the interesting details and graying the rest out… that's a thought.

    I totally understand, after all designing should be fun and moving walls in a GA isn´t always ... lol ... It is more, that I think you could develop the designs even further, since you have the profiles down by now.... Some top views would do the trick as well, then you can focus on the exterior lines, but present your yacht concepts more complete .... A good example is your cat design, form the side it could as well be an oddly shaped single hull yacht... a top view would clarify that on a glance and give some more information on the actual 3d shapes. ? .... Just some thoughts.

    Atomare, I think you’re absolutely right about the top view making the design feel more complete. I guess I’ve been thinking a top view wouldn’t do unless the complete GA followed.

    Yes, it's been done before

    ...but still interesting, I think.

    52m again with some classical touch.

    Most of the lines borrowed from the 53m concept above.

    53m Explorer.

    I’m planning a series of Explorer yachts in the 50m range starting off with this 53m.
    Again, most of the lines from the previous 53m concepts.

    I have a single question : when will you jump to 3D ?
    I'm sure the result would be interesting ;)

    I’m afraid the time needed to learn, really isn’t on my side. I would need a crash course. :)
