I think Mirabella's owner was clear on his vision for V: he wanted the boat with the tallest mast. Everything else was secondary. Someone else in this thread mentioned the book "Mine's Bigger", the book written about Tom Perkins' quest to build Maltese Falcon. That book also talks about Joe's vision for Mirabella and several other contemporary superyacht sailboats. Very interesting reading for those who like to see how the other 0.0001% lives. When someone noted to Joe Vittorino that his charter fees for Mirabella were really high, he said something like "I only have to find a few millionaires to charter to". Nice.
