Matt Layden's cruising designs

When I first saw them, Matt's designs seemed a bit silly to me, but then most really good art is objectionable in some way when you first see it, because you're is not prepared to understand it. On closer inspection, these seem to be meticulously thought out and very practical boats which, Phil Bolger et. al. notwithstanding, are defining both a new aesthetic and new possibilities in design and cruising. Matt doesn't have a website but Dave and Mindy Balduc are friends and have been sailing his boats for years. Click this link to see their site about microcruising.
