What's the Sailboat in "Curious Case of Benjamin Button"?
 
Hi, does anyone know what kind of sailboat was used in the film "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"? It's beautiful.

A beautiful one.

I have never seen the movie, but I am willing to bet it is an R-class sloop. Because those are damn good looking boats.

I looked up R-class sloops, and that is certainly a nice vessel. The sloop they highlighted in a few scenes were similar to style to the R-class, but not an R-class. ....I'm still wondering if anyone knows.

Oh, was there a boat underneath Brad Pitt in those scenes? I somehow didn't notice...

;)

I haven't been able to find any authoritative answers on the internet as to the real name of the boat,or its whereabouts. gorgeous boat though.

It looked similar to the Morris Sparkman & Stevens sloops with the looonnngg overhangs. My first impression was that it was a wood boat.

Im not sure what type of boat it is but I am also curious about it as well. I just watched this movie for the 1st time last night so it was kinda random to see this thread today...

Sparkman & Stephens 32
 
I have not seen the movie, but did it look like this?

Supposedly this is a picture of "Button Up" from the film, but I cannot verify that either (having not seen it), but maybe this will tweak some memories.
