PCP will become famous soon enough
And changing subject, from luxury to traditional historical boats, a very beautiful one, The American corsair "Lynx", a replica of one of the fastest boats of its time (1812):

Welcome To The Home Of America's Privateer Lynx









Curiously its naval history was quite short:

HMS Mosquidobit (sometimes Musquedobet or Musquidobit) was the Chesapeake-built six-gun schooner Lynx that the British Royal Navy captured and took into service in 1813. She was sold into commercial service in 1820 and nothing is known of her subsequent fate.
