Curious about how a semi-displacement hull performs without the normal weight associated with that design. Seems that the benefits of a heavy hull provides much of the stability in rough water. Wouldn't a light weight hull still behave like a cork?
I am curious to know what powers the bow thruster if it has an outboard for main and kicker ? Nice looking boat.
The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.
I wonder if they have measured the 6kts at 1/2 gallon per hour. This seems pretty fast for a 25ft boat running in displacement mode. I would think it would be more like 4kts in displacement mode. Hull speed is a function of length at the waterline, and my 31 ft boat caps out at about 4.5kts in displacement mode. A few kts is not a huge difference, unless you are trying to get somewhere, and it is 50% different in travel time when you are talking about 4 vs. 6.
It is a nice boat though, and nice to see something a bit different.
