288' long and looks just like a Chinese junk under full sail. You can charter it for 12 people from 488,000$/week. That's just 40,666.66$ each.

Bargain !!! 8-)8-):eek:

I saw her years ago when she sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco. It made me wonder what it would have been like to see fast Clipper ships come into the Bay in the 1800's.

Very efficient and only a very small crew Icopus and I'm sure if you offered them around 120,000,000$ they would sell it to you/ That would save you having to queue to get a charter wouldn't it 8-)

I much prefer the traditional ketch or gaff rigged beauties. The only sailing boat I had was a Mirror dingy. 12' long, pram bow and gaff rigged. Not fast but so much fun

We had rented a small 14'(?) sail boat a couple of times. Very fun. I've wanted a sail boat ever since.

That's my kind of boat Bob and the setting is perfect.

Marseilles pilot cutter. Pilot getting off, OK job in the calm, but not one that I would like to do!

Especially in a lumpy sea :eek:
