Nirvana 53,5meter Dubois

The Dubois 53,5 meter yacht Nirvana is approaching her launch date in September 2007. Many of the Dubois yachts have been built in New Zealand. This one is however under construction at Vitters in the Netherlands.

At this link you can enjoy a few photos of the yacht, taken during June 2006.

One question -Why is the booms positioned so high above the deck and flybridge of the yacht? To me it seems like they are to high up. The downside of this it a negative effect on the aesthetics of the yacht (less sporty and aggressive) and I assume also a reduced size of the sail area. Comments?
