It's on a trailer, and it looks like it has a swing keel.LOL

At least it "looks" like what I consider a yacht should look like.
Not an eyesore thing that the Russian had built recently.

Would not like to be stepping/unstepping the mast every time I want to go for a sail.

I see it is like a Heron dinghy - goes on the trailer backwards!

No problem. Just like stepping/unstepping the lamp-post at the side of the road.

Anyway, its the ramp-rage you've got to look out for. See all the drivers in those cars just seething with impatience to get their trailers from the car park? They must have been waiting, oh, two to three minutes or so. A dangerous delay.
