With hydro power and solar sails, expect to be able to cross the Atlantic burning zero fuel.

Actually be a great movie, one of these time-travels, pops in next to the Pilgrims on the Mayflower "Hey you guys need a lift?"

Re: Black Pearl Mega Yacht Video

Interesting that they think they are going to generate power from the propellers when under sail ,, obviously have not read some of the wags from CF on the subject ..

Hydro power, both off drive props and dedicated units, has been very common for a long time.

Both DIY projects and commercial OTS units.

Not the most attractive hull and cabin design. Look's too power-boatish.... kind of like a stretched Sunseeker with masts.

Standing on a warf next to a 60 meter Perini Navi is truly breathtaking. This yacht is three to five times larger.

You need to get out more. :-)

So size is the defining characteristic of beauty? We anchored next to Eclipse a few years ago in St Martin, and I don't remember it being beautiful even though it was the largest in the world at the time.

You every going to sail any place other then the Med?
