With the bigger boat now I cant think it would do the same as its too long at 7m. I also hope the futura hi-riders will give a better ride.
Agreed this is not a deep V, but the weight and size of the boat should make it a good ride with flat seas. Or so I hope.
Pretty much any planing hull, regardless of length, will lift at the bow as it climbs over the 'hump' and onto the plane.
I had a 4.7m Futura and it performed just like the 3.5m Mk1, quick lively and skimmed over the waves. Like all Futura's you need a brave throttle hand to get the best from it
