The BMW Oracle trimaran taken out of her shed

There is a whole new bunch of pictures of BMW Oracle's monster trimaran being trucked out of her shed in Anacortes. These pictures are provided by the team and are dated August 23rd.

Regardless of what opinion one might have on Larry Ellison, Russell Coutts, GGYC and the team as a whole, this is an impressive, mind-blowing yacht. Just look at the mast!!! Are we going to see it Valencia? I hope so.

disregarding all legal aspects - annoying as they are - this construction is great. Its sheer existence proofs that building 'normal' Americas Cup Yachts is not the climax of race-ship building on this planet. And we don't talk of anything less than the best racing yacht building world wide.
Don't misunderstood me. I'm not supporting the childish though very expensive battle of two - more or less - grown up boys.
I just think that competition is the one and only reason improve technology. And this trimaran is the proof.
