What a yacht – 289 ft. long, with carbon fiber masts that can spin on a dime and sails that unfurl at the click of a mouse in 6 minutes. Fiber optics make constant adjustments to the sails, allowing it to travel at speeds up to 20 knots with virtually no vibration, noise or wake. A crew of 18 keeps all things nautical running smoothly, and it has luxury accomodations for up to 12 guests.
The owner said in an interview that it cost somewhere between $150 million to $300 million to build. It sold in 2009 to an top secret owner for $90 million. “Bargain” pricing!
