“Other than fussing with oddly shaped hull windows, Euro stylists seem to expend most of their passion on the superstructure—ergo, overdone. This is not the case with the 72. Her softly raked house/bridge face and cantilevered overhang are well-proportioned, and she is not cluttered with winglets or foolish faux vents. The segmented house-side window design is sufficiently interesting without being busy or confusing to the eye.”
