I am constantly amazed at this new tech, just need to remember that like F1 cars the average guy probably couldnt even drive a lap of the countdown carpark and the cars themselves are on a different planet to your moms swift. As for the $$, well we all know that there is no limit to the amount of cash you can pour into a race boat.

   

Not only race boats but cruisers.

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

The hull shape transitions are pretty complex.

Is that really the new control centre? or a spoof from Sailing Anarchy, showing a drone pilots console? Either that or a flight simulator.

There is nothing marine about it, esp the chair, and the screens look to have very aviation type views and horizons. I first saw this on SA and it just looked like they were having a laugh a few days after HB's launch...

 

PS, I think a joystick would be about as useful as tits on a bull in a foiling imoca jumping off waves at 25 knts plus. Don't they normally use track balls for that reason? (not being able to hold on, and throwing the mouse / joystick around as the boat jumps and lurches)
