I really like and appreciate the video reviews you present but this video is very low in content. It does not measure against previous posts. Please, keep the usual review depth and quality.Thanks for the many good reviews.

Nice video

MrYort13 says:

Way to many questions left on table .. needs more details.

Bert Farin says:

Nice review Toby. Wish you would have shown more footage of the cabins. Beautiful boat.

Mr. Bournce says:

what about the VIlm 41 Ds? I think it looks much better, has a classic interior and is so much cheaper

Ian KELLY says:

you do a great job Toby – thanks

Francis Ivanyisky says:

No Contest!  Nice sailing vessel for sure!

Leon Allan Davis says:

More pictures of the pretty boy posing than of the actual boat.
Gay, gay, gay…

Chicken Soup says:

Slick looking yacht

Carlos G says:

Sense or privacy from ummm ….anyways

O K says:

Nice review. Very enjoyable.

Dan Agle says:

This doesn’t really show anything. Some motoring with nice scenery is not a review. I don’t even know what “On Test” means in the context of this video; nothing appeared to be tested at all.

Jablow Maikok says:

Hi toby, I wish u made these videos longer with more detail

Dinka Boutit says:

LOL If the water’s 40°, it’s not a “white Sandy beach,” it’s a shore.

Sailing Tranquilo says:

Lovely yacht, looks like a fantastic performer by all accounts. Bit too pricey and overengineered for the tropical around the world sailing we’re doing from next year though… guess we’re not the target market, as much as I have a soft spot for Contests. Looks like it’s still the Hanse 455 and Dufour 460 as our shortlist yachts for next year…

Rodger Snyder says:

Clever text… Beautiful 42′. Thanks. wavesfromSeattle

Pedro Strom says:

love it

Ling Du says:

O God It’s been too long Toby suddenly grew so much grey hair.

X V says:

Slick production. Great audio. Beautiful boat. I know the analytics say to keep these short but I’d rather see more detail about everything from the rig to the hull form to the interior, especially when it comes to storage both on deck and below.

Dallin says:

Thanks for putting these videos together. Keep up the good work guys.

Jacob Rose says:

‘No contest” loving the mad pun at the end hahah
