Modern Space Requirements

I thought about how affluence has changed our perception when I saw these two boats side by side.   The old yacht has less volume than just one hull of the modern catamaran, yet forty years ago it would have been the envy of all who saw it, the epitome of every man's cruising dream.

Now it's an uncomfortable relic, best suited as a model for romantic photographs of cruising sunsets, viewed from the air conditioned saloon of it's neighbour.

I live in the Mornington Peninsula world of boats and it's so interesting how styles are popular for awhile and then pass into the relic and curiosity category. Now I am seeing many styles of dry docks for small boats. That's the latest fad.
