    Didn't you see the reply's on this same question in the other thread?

    Simply put, the boat you've mentioned is a computer drawing and part of an artist's "ramblings". In fact, once you get to know these types of sailing craft, you'd note the lack of rigging accuracy with the artists renderings. Simply put, the masts wouldn't be able to support the press of wind in her sails, rigged the way she's drawn. The masts would just topple over and it also appears there's insufficient control lines as well, so the running rigging is just as incomplete as the standing rigging.

    Yes, plans for similar craft are available, through several sources, though building a vessel like this is at least a 7 digit deal. So, if you have a few million laying around, with nothing better to do with it, I say go for it. If you're looking to build a model of something, the Smithsonian Institution is the first place to start for plans of this type.
