In the wild.
And there goes Bezos' 4 knot shitbox on her maiden tow through the beautiful Dutch rivers.



She looks a little bit pregnant,
but with 3 schooner masts on her she will be a prom queen.

Anyone knows the designers/stylists? Her exterior styling looks a bit like a Dykstra, but then those are done in correberation with different stylists.

You have to hand it to the Dutch - they certainly know how to move things around.

I haven't seen renderings of the rigs.  Did he go for square-top mains, or gaff, or pinhead?  Or wishbone on 1 and 2?  Or a mix?

Can't rich people have a bit of taste ?

If you insist on spending gazillions on a yacht, at least don't get an architect specialised in whales to design the hull!

I was thinking Dynarig. Far more easily controllable & reefable than gaff/bermuda.
