The design brief for this particular design was for a sporty styled sedan that was aesthetically appealing without looking too radical, comfortable accommodation for up to 5 people with a separate master stateroom.  The vessel had to perform well with limited power and have all round excellent sea keeping ability.  

To fit this brief we have used a generous chine beam, moderate dead-rise monohedron hull form with a fine entry developing into straight buttock lines in the aft sections.  The bottom is also slightly convex in section athwartship further enhancing the sea keeping performance. 

This in our opinion is the most efficient hull form for this configuration which has been reinforced by the vessel’s performance.
