I prefer the sleeker knarr model circa 930 A.D.
I'll see that 1850's corvette and raise you a 1950's Frigate:

Actually prefer a Dreadnought.
Needs more sail.
Cars can sail, too:
I'm pretty sure the one in the pic is red.......
It was the best selling color.
Looks like the design is a more original idea
Wonder if it was an Italian super ship they copied off of?
I know diddly about sailing, but I just watched a wonderful documentary on Mexico winning an international, yearlong sailing race around the world in 1972 or so. One of the crewmembers interviewed for the doc (almost all are still alive, happy, and proud) had worked for a California company that made sails. The Mexican crew recruited him for the race, as he obviously knew his s**t. He said that he has not lived on land in over 40 years. Like the other crew members, the experience changed or defined him.
The crew had a few guys who really knew what they were doing, and already had sterling reputations, but many of them were first-timers, usually extended family members. They became well-drilled and seemed to be interlocked somehow. (That is the weirdest sentence I have ever read.)
Anyway, what stuck out was how, at one point, the crew changed sails 140 times in 30 minutes. (I am not confident that I have reported these numbers accurately, but my wife used to sail and said sometimes that happens in order to catch every ounce of wind.)
Yeah, the ruby yacht of Omar Khyaam.
I think in the 1800’s the Corvette was the fastest sailing ship. Not 100% on this.
The split rear window . . .
