Color me surprised.

The Chinese have been doing this for years. They used to make one that was a dead copy of the Mac, complete with black stripes.

But it comes with free fenders err tires. I’m half surprised it wasn’t some knock off Chinese band ripping off deep purple as well.

Anyone know if one has actually been sold?

Note the lack of any real sailing. I wouldn't trust the build quality at all. 8)

Zero chance that a purchase wouldn't end in disaster.

The Macgregors in the product photos look great, the actual product looks like $#!+. Even if a brand new one was $10k I wouldn't buy it on principle.

Yes but for $660,000 USD you can buy a luxury motor-yacht from them with the following specifications:

"The boat is class IV boat. Means a yacht designed to sail not more than 10 n miles from the shore and having a minimum designed wave height (Hs) of 1 m."
