Sorry whisper I agree with Nick, I think it's the the windscreen that does it for me, it looks more like a telly stuck on the front.

I must agree with this fella, plus I can't see no fast drain system case she ships one over the bow, However I do like that teak deck and that bench thingy attatched on starboard stern, But that sreen is asking for the proverbial to be taken.

Doesn't blow my skirt up either! That screen and the general shape of the hull is pretty ugly. Fitting out looks very smart though.
In the video it doesn't look as though it ever trims out flat once on the plane, it seems to spend its whole time with the bows poking up in the air whilst it is trying to climb over the hump? It just doesn't look right to my eye..

BUt remember they are only designed for 'nice' weather / water ...probably never going to see anything like a decent wave ....

Shearwater have also started to make a nice looking 10m cabin number !

EWWW nasty looking RIB in my oppinion. Also doesnt seem to sit right in the water.
and a little small for a inboard. would give it loads of space with a nice outboard. :-)
