While it could be a really big cat, I seriously doubt it... A big cat, like Safari
, a Gunboat 62, could put out a wake like that...
(go to the safari website and click on the video page if you want to see a funny video...
It would have been more difficult to film the video on a sailboat...given that any monohull would probably be heeled over 15-20˚ or so. Also, given the age of the video...they may have needed AC power, which is usually available on most powerboats, but not so much on sailboats at that time, to power the sound and video equipment...
I like the Wikipedia definition of sailing.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
