    Hi,

    a german guy called "Walter" built it. I will meet him again most likely these days in Union island. I will ask him for details.

    Bagalut is a 9 out or 10 for looks, well proportioned. Lost some points due to being aluminum. I think if we only talking looks wise the new 17m G-Force has won the metal! only 7,500KG!

    I went on board the Discovery, the only multihull!, at the London boat show, it is indeed a "beautiful multihull"

    This is what I dream of at night. I like the purposeful lines and the design for performance.

    That picture of the Chris White boat does look inviting for sure. Just wish it had an area outside the back that was covered. Gets hot where I am. 30 min in the sun and start getting heat stroke.

    You mean something like this? That is the joy of semi custom boats, you can do a lot of different things with them.

    YES! Nice setup. $1.7 mil US a bit steep. The 57 looks ideal if you are cashed up. I wonder what the 48ftrs are going for? I think with the 48 the back is pretty much non existent. The G-17 goes for about 1-1.2 mil US. Wonder how they would compare?

    Chris White is showing a 2005 Atlantic 48 for sale on his website for $769,000. I suspect a new one would be in the $1,000,000 range. (Just a guess, don't hold me to that). I agree, the back deck would be pretty small, that why I like the 57.

    Do you have a link to the G-17?

    They are making 1 custom now. They sent me the drawings and a rendering. Here is the rendering. Looks very nice, but not keen on the Helm position and would want a bigger hard top out back. I will be spending most of my time outside. What I like about the A57 is helm position front and inside. I prefer the look of the G-17 but Helm position really doesn't work for me. I also like the larger cabin space and ample cockpit space of the G-17. If I could fuse the two boats together I would buy.

    Cheater! Not suppose to list your own boat, no matter how beautiful it is.

    When do you get the last of the sails lashed on?

    We have the mainsail and jib now - the one in the pic is actually an old monohull jib I had in the shed - too small and totally wrong shape for the boat, but it did sail.

    The proper sails are so much better it's amazing. We've seen 12.5 knots reaching in breeze which peaked at 14 knots, we've sailed to windward at 30 degrees at 8 knots in 12, in 5 knots breeze we saw 5 knots, and were consistently within 1/2 a knot of windspeed, in real light stuff, 2-3 knots breeze with around 2 knot boatspeed we were able to tack without looking remotely like going into irons.

    I thought cats couldn't do that?

    Still learning, but having loads of fun.

    I'm also thinking about how well we'd do in the light stuff with a reacher/screecher type sail on a prodder.....
