I have followed Wind Horse occasionally and am in tune with your design philosophy. I am delighted to see your new 64.
I have several questions that I could not find answered on you excellent web pages:
What does FPB stand for?
What is the cost of your FPB 64?
Have you reduced the draft on the prop skeg after the first version? I live on the Gulf coat of Florida where shallow draft is important.
Functional Power Boat = FPB. Current price, fully equipped is about US$2.5 million. Draft has not been reduced. But depeneding on howo the boat is to be used and if y ou were prepared to sacrifice a few points in efficiency you might cut four inches/100mm off the prop and skeg.
