    I am fortunate to see up close some spectacular sailing ships doing a stopover in Nice harbour. Yesterday, it was Anatta, 276' sloop with a giant mast / giant boom that I estimated ~ 85 m (279') / ~ 29 m (95'), the boom in itself could be quasi the hull of a 29 m racing catamaran.
    I took pictures here attached.
    Loa 66 m / 216',6 ; Boa 10,3 m / 33',1 ; Draft 9 m / 29',6
    Design : Ed Dubois ; Builder : Vitters (NL)

    That greenhouse on deck really is ugly....

    Love the winch handles on the mast, I wonder what they are used for.

    I climbed the castle hill to take this picture, that better gives the proportion of the boat with the others and the cars in the fore front :
