This is amazing sailboat design by British designer George Wolstenholme! Look at the size of that thing. Beautiful, just beautiful. To me the J Class is likely the best sailboat design to this day.
With new materials and overall technology applied we might be looking at the design for the 21st century. I am refering here to hull design. Personally, I’d like to think the wind force based propelling systems such as traditional mast and sails should be replaced with kite-like sails. This way boat can safely achieve higher speeds in stronger winds. Materials like carbon-fiber are stronger than steel and yet light enough to made higher speeds possible. Anyways, great design!
