Hype is a rather unfriendly word, isn't it?

After Atlantic had been built and seeking to continue to employ the excellent crew of boatbuilders at Van der Graaf, it was decided to start to build Ingomar and to seek a new owner who would continue and finish the task.

And this is where the project currently stands. The hull has been built, a new  owner is being sought.

Hype?

it surprises me that some speculation projects undergo build&finish and later go to press with a bold "sold at a profit" stamp on them.
Except that they don't all have a negative backlog. Here Mr. Castelein's 69m Atlantic is still offered for sale for circa 16.5m. (and potentially he isn't making that much of a profit, as it is the price of a 125ft Oyster...)
Atlantic's record is certainly worthy of ownership, but just look at the sex in the lines of Herreshoff's Ingomar. For me a Herreshoff - and I think this is the correct forum - is hype. The yachting history buff's hype kind.
