Between a cat and a trimaran.
Long story. It was to be like you have said, the teams had already chosen the boat (a mono hull) and then BMW Oracle made a court claim saying the Spanish challenger defy was not by the book (a technicality).
An US court gave reason to them, and BMW Oracle was the new Challenger.
BMW Oracle chose to put all the other teams out of the game and opted for a giant trimaran on a single defy with Alinghy.
