    No idea, with such deep big rudders, they need to be about 4"

    That's a nice looking cat, but seems to me it was designed by a monhull designer, for better or worse. It has, gasp, a companionway (remember that concept?) from which you climb down into the bridgedeck..

    Very seaworthy, but losing half the benefit of sailing a cruising cat..

    I assume this is just a concept to test the market. Perhaps lagging sales from a mono builder has prompted the exercise.

    65ft boat with vertical transoms and no steps
    The mast is in the middle of the cabin
    There is no apron to cross in front of the cabin
    A companion way (as noted by Chris)
    What happens between the cockpit floor and the underside of the wing
    At 24 tonnes for a 65ft is definitely NOT ultra light
    Long thin angled rudders

    The real Dragonfly company might have issues with that 'other' tri.

    6.05 meters draft is 6'8". Most cats this size are around 5' MOL. I had to check YW for this.

    For some reason it reminds of one of the large monos from the side, the rudders look like they belong on a mono, good luck,

    Your metric conversion is incorrect: 6.05 meters is just over 19'10".

    You are right of course. The draft is 2.05 meters which is 6'8". I was half right!
