Nice styling, the steppes looks very shallow though?

Very Very shallow, almost to the pont of useless.

It is like someone wanted stepps in the hull design but does not know what the steps are there for.

It's a 60' boat. Of course the steps will look proportionally small.
A bigger boat doesn't necessarily mean bigger steps are needed - depends on the weight, wetted surface area & speed.

Normally these things scale with Froude number.
The problem here is not that the steps are small but that have zero height. Steps with no height will not have positive influence on performance.
I think this is more an aesthetics study than a repressive drawing of the hull?
