Did you also notice that it is now cutter rigged?
Yes it is cutter-rigged. Tacking must be a fairly laborious exercise
as there is a baby stay too, so to tack one would have to furl and
unfurl both foresails. The Amel rep claimed this was easy - but I have
my doubts. I would have preferred a self-tacking staysail.

I guess most potential owners of the 54 will not be doing much upwind
sailing though...
