A few weeks ago, there were some pictures posted on a UK forum of a yacht which had broken her mooring
in the storms we had, and gone aground. Luckily, she was refloated with only minor damage, but no-one could work out what she was! I hate it when this happens, I get a sort of itch to find out!! Odd, I know.
She has the look of an American design (Atkin?), so I thought here would be a good place to ask... Can anyone help?

For those of a strong disposition, here are some videos of her going aground.

Whatever the design is, it has certainly earned my respect for surviving that with only minor damage. Apparently the owners had just loaded her up for a world cruise
. Bet they were glad they chose such a strong yacht!
