>>> Hermes prototype yacht design

There are all kinds of prototype and "odd" design studies you see, but this one is a bit different. Its very wide and "short" for its size.

They have also built a full scale mockup from what appears to be CNC cut plywood or the like.

Interesting concept. I don’t think it would do well in following seas or the like, and I have no idea what short and very wide would do to hull speed, but worth a look.
