Marin,

I think you might be right about the speed. The builders state "The first Panorama FF46 is equipped with 2 Yanmar 6BY3 - 160 HP engines and has a maxiumum speed of 11 knots." With a single, it would certainly be no faster than a S/L ratio of 1.34 or about 9 knots.

They also state it is a "Fast-sailing apartment with a large sun veranda." I would say they met their design objective.
