Nice!
Thanks Jeff the Capitalist!
Nordic... That is one HOT boat!
I want one! But, the wife is in control of the purse strings (it's her money) and I don't think she wants a boat at all (except for one to charter every now and again).
I need to start a different thread to explore how I can get her to loosen up and get me my dream boat!!!::)

I've just posted some updated renders and pictures on another thread here.

Schionning.....

They have a new 18,5m, with bi-rig and probably a steeringpositon in the front of the roof....

And reverse bows, I see. Not so good for anchoring, methinks.

But why not, reverse bows is common on 18-20f.... It looks good IMO.

I don't like the flybridge, and the steering position in the aft cockpit is midships, so you look through the saloon.

Seems like too much rocker aft and tiny rudders, but that could just be the viewing angle.


Looks good otherwise,

I like it. The forward "workpit" is a reliable indication of a truly advanced design. Are those air scoops on the sides of the hull to feed the afterburners?

Alan,

To me the "steering position in the aft cockpit" is made up of bar stools and a decent sized outside bar!? :D

Overall this is IMOH an innovative design look, will be interesting to see if the interior layout has any surprises.

Mike, the scoops are air brakes you deploy when you need to slow down. The "workpit" is only OK if the crew can then retire to their quarters without going through the saloon and disturbing the owners and their guests:) NO, truly advanced and classy designs have a full blown cockpit:D where the sundowners are served (weather permitting)

Looks good otherwise,

Alan The helm position is amidships, and you have a cover over the helmsman - They have a rather shallow looking set of stairs to get to the helm position. If you select the frame, select the image and zoom in, you can see this. The bar is just aft of the helm position, and you have no view at all if you sit at the bar and look at the bar keeper - just a bulkhead, which wouldn't appeal to me. The cockpit area is convenient to access the rear steps, but the engine rooms must be very cramped. I guess you are meant to lie on the shallow cockpit thingie forward of the helm, but watch your head in a jibe (gybe.) The rudders do look very small. As sculpture, it's beautiful, but as a working boat I see some 'issues.'

As to the rocker, you may find that the waterline is lower than you guess. Schionning places the knuckle forward above the DWL sometimes.

Alan, I concede the advantage of a true, sundowner-enabled cockpit, but would stipulate that each sundowner sport a little umbrella to keep the sun off the ice. :D

I wonder if this is a crewed charter design. As you point out the steps to the helm position are very steep, but there is a nice stairway to port that leads up to the elevated cockpit, presumably bypassing the helm station.
