The Norwegian boat has been optimised for high speed cruising and looks pretty glamorous. They are sending some renderings of the boat.
The charter proa criteria and ranking of importance were 1) low cost to build and run, 2) accommodation for 8, 3) performance and 4) appearance.
The 66 footer is different again as it is to be a live aboard, long term cruiser with all mod cons. It is strip planked with a lot more emphasis on looks than the charter boat. There are also a couple of Visionarrys which have the lee hulls (one has a bigger ww hull as well) stretched to 60+' which should be pretty quick as well. One of these is cedar, the other made from flat panels. The flat panel one has a full time team building it, the owner wants to be sailing by Xmas.
All these will be put on the web page when I get access to it. Many thanks to everyone who has offered to help.
I've seen mention of several larger Harrproas, both on the harryproa.com website and in
your recent postings. Of particular interest are the Alvestad 20 m Harry in Norway and your
recent charter Harry - care to give us some updates?
Some plan views would be interesting - I think a 20m Harryproa would be a fine contender
against a 13m or thereabouts cat.
