One of those coincidences, I was watching My Classic Boat about an unusually rigged yacht Boleh one evening and a couple of days later cycling through the Chichester marina noticed the very distinctive quadruple mast.

The story of Bole is very interesting, designed and built after the war in Singapore the unusual design was influenced by the dhows, junks and intended to be at her best in ocean trade winds.

A sliding gunter rig is supported by a sort of pylon and uses a wishbone boom. There's a lot of information on the Boleh Trust website .
