They can't spell their boat type (shooner??) and they are trying to sell an ugly boat for a million and a half on a website known for garage-sale transactions.
I expect it to be sunk for the insurance momentarily. It looks like the Bluenose was raped by a Winnebago, and this fell out of the main hatch after a forceps delivery.

It is like a giant Mac. Too bad, with that kind of money they could have built a very pretty schooner, not that... what ever it is.
I have a soft spot for schooners, the Highlander Sea is right next door which is about 125 feet long and in beautiful shape and hopefully this summer I will be helping a friend launch and rig his totaly rebuilt 1937 wooden schooner.

I have to agree with Giu that it is a damn ugly boat though.
Definitely designed under influence of alchohol.
LOL, it looks like they stuffed all the interior stuff in there, made the boat super heavy... then thought "oh, it won't move, darn, no problem, let's add as much sails as we can in the most awkward places!"
It's like a giant McGregor motor sailor lol

|Kacper||Guesser, that boat has been on the market here in BC/WA for about a year I think. The owner had it custom built. Last time I checked the price tag was about $1.5 Mil. We can go on it partners in a year or so, I'll have half the cash, what do you say?|

Looks like one of those Steel gizmoloudous from the Pac Northwest. Pretty good boat as i have heard tell.

looks too small for comfort, i think a catalina 27 would have just as much room if everyone on this board could chip in a cool million each, we might get a deal on it.
edit: Giu, your boat is proof that a lot of money and drunk sailboat designers shouldn't be in the same room
