I absolutely love traditional boats and beauty of well engineered functional items. That's what makes race
cars like f1 so cool.
Now having said that I agree I think this is super cool. I see the beauty in it. I also think it would be one of those things that would be so much better in reality than pictures. I love it when people go outside the box.
Now if I had that much money
would I buy it. No I would opt for something very salty and much more practical for sure. But I can still see the beauty.
Just like I can appreciate the beauty of some women that there's no way I would want to be in a relationship with ;-)
