    Brunick,

    I bet, this ugly duckling is either a homebuilt or the super structure was changed for the worse by a second owner. No yard will let one of those design mishaps through its door in to the world.

    I think my favorite part of Jay's Sandbar Food Boat is that he sold billboard space to other "entrepreneurs" to advertise at, or is it on, his fine establishment. Premier Yacht Detailing anyone?

    Brand new 41m. Not one line or shape compliments any other on the yacht. Amateur hour.

    All new Sunseekers look that ugly. The Russians love them.

    Unbalanced profile for sure. Homely as a hedge fence. Is it a Sunseeker? I ask because their newly announced 42. while similar. has a much better profile in pictures with better fenestration. bow design and a sun deck. Also I didn't think they had launched one yet. So... copy? photoshop? custom design Sunseeker doesn't want to admit to? Just asking.

    Gee. Pretty good design pedigree. Ginton of Holland and Hot Lab of Milan. Hull and bow shape is all the rage - Horizon, OA even the recently discussed Hargrave GG. It just looks squat and unbalanced like it got decapitated by a low bridge. Still, beauty is in the eye pf the beholder and this was a custom build for an experienced owner so one must assume he got exactly what he wanted.
