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.)

that looks like the one that was moored at Richmond walk marina opposite Cremyl a while back . It looks like something from a James Bond film close up , very narrow for its length

Mr Halliday disturbed the owners from the pontoon in Haslar yesterday evening whilst they sat on deck trying to have a quiet drink.
They really didn't want to talk to him.

It was out and about for the beginning of the RB08, and looks amazing on the move, as mentioned, a bit 007ish.

I went to Alderney and it was moored up there and about a month later I went to Gosport and it was there too. Spooky. I think it was following me.

It has huge inflatable fenders, it must take ages to blow them up and it anchors and fixes to a mooring buoy from the rear.

There was a piece in one of the monthlys last year. Awesome design but how can you expect to keep a low profile in a marina after inviting a national glossy onto the boat? You'd think they'd be proud of it.

There's a "promo" vid on you tube, the link is on the MBY page
