We think this boat looks really cool in almost every way. We hope it’s fast and that the designer and builder can sell a few more.
However, you cannot call a boat with a cockpit like this “A gentleman’s racer/cruiser”. Ya just can’t! There is nothing, even by the skinniest definitions, anything remotely gentlemanly or cruising about it. Where are the bench seats (long enough to lay on, btw)? Winch islands to help keep the cockpit semi-dry? A locker or three, accessible from the cockpit? No footholds or really anything to grab onto?
Listen, we get it, and if we were doing a boat cockpit it would look a lot like this, but we sure as hell wouldn’t call it a cruiser. There is a ton more info here.
