Crazy! That's a lot of steps for a one off. Do they have a sister-ship in the que?

Thanks for sharing that. Very cool view of the process.
About time frame/process - "This movie was created from a time lapse camera system (Psicam). It captures the approx. 1 year process of the building of the Antrim 49 racing yacht, Rapid Transit. The hull and mast were built at Berkeley Marine Center, using carbon fiber construction techniques. It was launched in 2009, and has recorded speeds over 30 mph. For more info, see www.berkeleymarine.com"

I love those time lapse vids. Reminds me of the Cookson vids they made about Speedboat.
