I want one.....

ps: note to Yachting World - the video is from Lake Geneva not Valencia! There is a clue in the intro titles.

Apparently, these are fairly reasonable.

It's the launching dolly that's a bit pricey.

I was thinking its low draft would make it excellent for sailing on the Thames!

You'd have to make a few minor adjustments.

The mast would have to have a hinge in it so could pull it down when going under bridges.

And maybe need some sort of hydraulic system to pull the hulls closer together for bridges that have multiple spans so each one is relatively small.

.. ok, it might not be ideal for the Thames.

But at least unlike Geneva there is access to the sea so wouldn't need one of those rather expensive launching dollies (which anyhow I hear from Tillerman just get vandalised)
