    Yes that's it. Obviously built with an unlimited budget. Now beginning to decay on the beach. I guess it could be 30' maybe that includes the bow sprit. If sailing with a crew especially the tacking proa seems to make more sense to me than all the shunting and extra rudder, etc. Just hike out a bit or ad some water to the ama.

    There were some really nice drone videos of it sailing but I can't seem to track them down at the moment.

    ETA - just after I typed that I found one:

    Why do you say this was an unlimited budget?
    Everything seems to be fairly simple elements, including the rig.
