It's a lot easier to set a trawl with multiple pots/traps single handed when they don't have to be balanced on a transom. It looks like a work boat.

Van Dam in town built a boat like that a few years ago, a little larger boat. Very odd looking boat.

But on second look, who would build a tender for a yacht that only seats 2-3 people? more so who would build a work boat with nice wood flooring?

Lots of sailboats do that. It is so that when water goes in it just runs strait out the back. Can suck on a trailing sea!

But a Farr 40 / Mumm 30 are purpose built race boats, so it makes sense having an open back when you are racing in big seas instead of scuppers. This boat seems like its just a weird deisgn haha
