Even though the majority of yachts over 120ft in length are custom built to suit the needs of their owners, it is surprising how similar many of them are when it comes to design or internal layout. Perhaps this is just a coincidence that different people desire the same thing, or perhaps there is a sense of security when making an investment in a proven product. But every now and then someone builds a real ground breaker that makes the rest of us sit up and ask ourselves: “Why didn’t I think of that?”. FORTY LOVE is the perfect example for such a breakthrough.
