The original Schooner Atlantic being broken up: (1982)

If she had lasted a decade or 2 longer, somebody with really deep pockets would have appeared to restore her.

But, this recreation of the original is finished and most likely sailing around somewhere on the Med.

Is it real?

Considering some of the  crazy things there are building these days, it could very well be.
But, no. It's just it's just the incredible level of realism than can be achieved with computer graphics these days. This from Shopfer Yachts.    The concept is really beyond me. I'm sure it makes  perfect sense for some reason that I'm not aware.
