Here's some more information from Art of Kinetik:

Art of Kinetik, the producer of luxury wooden pleasure yachts, will this summer be launching a new model featuring the elegant lines, peerless finish and bespoke details that the company has become known for. Antagonist, a 37 foot open weekend cruiser, fits below the 63 foot Hedonist, the company’s flagship yacht.

Antagonist will be targeting all who want to spend a day on the water in style and in an environment not seen on any other yacht in its class. While smaller than Hedonist, the yacht continues the philosophy of elegant lines, superb craftsmanship, highest quality materials and plethora of bespoke details.

The main characteristic of the yacht is its unusually large open cockpit, providing both luxury surroundings and space for up to 8 people to spend a day in comfort, lounging, eating or sunbathing.

The uncompromising approach to beautiful design did not detract from providing the plentiful space and functionality required for relaxed time on the boat. Besides a large seating area in the cockpit featuring a multi functional table, there is also a spacious sunbathing area astern framed by two teak covered paths leading from the built in swimming platform.

Inside, a large air-conditioned interior with easy access from the cockpit provides a home like environment characteristic of the company’s previous yachts.

When launched in June 2012, Antagonist will show the evolution of the Art of Kinetik concept and philosophy and again demonstrate its unique combination of elegance and craftsmanship. It is destined to become a new benchmark in the weekend cruiser market segment.
