Wow! What a boat! That looks so spectacular. Now that's a boat. Thanks for the post.

It is. The interior is very minimal in an amazing sort of way and it is designed for people sitting in comfort on the cockpit which is 20 feet long. The fellow who owns is very wealthy (obviously) and had it built by the people who maintain his fleet of boats! I came across it in Sailing magazine. They mentioned his fleet has a 205 foot yacht "Lady Lola" although I understand he sold it recently:

How about this one ? We saw it in Puerto Madero , Buenos Aires and we thought it was a beauty.

There are many I like, but from a rarity point of view the Columbia 39 Constellation is right up there!
Columbia Constellation Specifications

But I also agree with the lovers of the Valliant 40. It's just got beautiful lines and a rear that is just to drool over.

She's currently moored in Cape Town - a real 46m beauty built by Baltic in Finland.
