Just found this from the Avon press release on their website:
I was right(ish)
"ARE YOU READY FOR THE NEW ADVENTURE?
The Avon Adventure 580 Open can be seen for the first time at the Show. Created as the replacement for the successful Open 560, the pulse-racing Adventure Open 580 has a number of new features including a brand new hull.
The Avon Adventure hull is renowned for its performance and the new 580 is set to take this to a new level, as the model features an optimised hull, thanks to a combination of innovative techniques from the market leader. Its two lateral transoms, located in the rear third of the craft, allow the comfort associated with a deep V, combined with the performance, stability and handling of a catamaran hull. By reducing the wetted surface and friction at high speeds, these transoms allow the craft to reach top speeds in complete safety and control. They also serve to limit the amount of lean on the boat when breaching."
