That's a Jeanneau SO410, an intriguing boat. It has ramps on the side decks down to the cockpit, so there's easy access.

I saw this brand new Sunsail Boat today along with some of her sisters already in the water. I wonder what you think of the aesthetics? It does not show well in the photo but it has a reverse bow.

I've seen a number of these at QAB Plymouth, on the hard, and can confirm that the photo is an accurate portrayal.

There were a lot of humped back, plumb bow designs in the 1950's so - retro cool

So why would Sunsail want a boat like that?
I was referring to the boat in the picture and video immediately ahead of your post - the Micro 650!

The Jeanneau has the fashionable Dreadnaught bow shape - and presumably Sunsail know their client base and assume they like modern looking boats, not old looking boats?
