Ummm…MacGregor for millionaires?  Maybe the best line is that it “resembles a high-performance sailing dinghy”. Thread here.

Cruising speeds in excess of 20 knots under power have been achieved from the yacht’s clean-lined underbody, moderately light displacement and twin diesels totaling 7000 bhp.

The hull form, developed by Pedrick Yacht Designs, resembles a high-performance sailing dinghy, scaled-up to 268 tons lightship. The dual mission of fast motoring and efficient sailing called for an innovative approach to appendage design and the propulsion system. To minimize ballast, a deep bulb keel extends to a 7.4m draft while sailing but swings up centerboard-style to just 2.5m for powering and harbor access, with the bulb housed entirely within the hull. When the keel is lowered for sailing, water ballast is added aft for trim balance.
