Yeah its a 70' wave piercing cruiser that a couple had built for them a couple of years ago.

Do a quick google, there's loads of info on it on the web.
Here's some chat about it http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/showthread.php?t=12795

It's Mary Slim, the Reddyhoffs' wave piercer. (Reddyhoff as in 'Dean & Reddyhoff', marina owners.)
