Does anyone recognise this weird keel?

This is a keel that we encountered when visiting a yacht club in Tasmania (Australia)...I have never seen anything quite like it and was wondering if anyone had any clue as to what it is and how it performs...and what it was built to try and do, that a regular keel cannot.

Just to show a few angles on the subject.
