Yep. I don't think the profile of the boat is remotely good looking and the interior looks like I built it. In my garage.

But...... what we don't know is if Mr. Garden was working within the confines of some very strict guidelines laid down by whoever commissioned the design. Naval architects, like artists and plumbers, have to eat and it may be he took this commission because it's how he made his living and he simply did the best he could with an inherently bad idea that he was being paid to execute.
