Tell us About Your DREAM Yacht...
This survey can be completely anonymous. We're not requiring your name, email, phone number... We're not here to spam you or send you unwanted emails, we simply want your honest opinion about yacht design, your personal style, hopes and dreams. Imagine we're sitting in the cockpit, sipping a cold one, watching the sunset in a calm tropical afternoon and just chatting about boats.

After you complete this survey, feel free to send it to your sailing buddies, spouse, lovers, ex-lovers (even if they don't like you), co-workers, people you don't know but need an excuse to make first contact. We wan't to hear from as many people as possible. At the end, there will be an optional place to add contact information, IF you'd like to stay informed with future updates and progress.

We'll be going over the results LIVE on our Youtube channel: ( sometime in the near future. So keep an eye out for that announcement. It should be fun!
