Happy with my 42 year old 8 meter sailboat thanks. wink
I agree, out of interest what did you work on and do on them?

yikes I have noticed that yachts tend to get uglier as they get bigger, but that's pretty hideous!

It appears Enigma has a gas turbine too. I imagine the fuel consumption of something like that or Ecstasea at full chat would be eye watering - even in superyacht terms.

I started out on small (45-60ft) sailboats, did a circumnavigation in 94-95,
did a short spell as engineer on a 120ft motorsailer calle ACT IV (Ex ABC)
a couple of seasons on a 26 mtr Jongert (La Perla, the first one) as Mate, joined "Lone Ranger" in 96 as Engineer for Tenders untill 2002, I took a year out during that time, and managed a 10 month re-fit on a 19 meter Van Dam Nordia steel sailboat (Oyimbo)before getting the shout to go back to Lone Ranger.
After I left Lone Ranger, I did a few months with Sunseeker here in Mallorca, doing warranty work, before going to work for my present boss, running his Johnson 87 M/Y, been with this family for over 7 years now.
I think a few more years will do me. That'll take me to 55. Then I intend to enjoy what I have while I can. Will probably just do some bits and bobs, the odd delivery etc.

One day over lunch, the Chief told me a very funny story about a shark getting sucked up into one of the jets. biggrin
I believe she has quite a good range, untill they fire up the turbine, then they can burn everything off in 24hrs! eek

It does have cannons (well, waterbomb cannons and catapults)

I'm sorry but this appeals to me on so many levels its not true. That video just sells it. I also love the fact that it is covered in solar panels.

Can I ask the yacht experts here, how would you dock this thing with it being so wide, would you need two spaces, and second has anyone ordered one yet and how much would it cost?

I would *imagine* - you wouldn't so much as dock it. It would be left 'outside' of the Harbour at anchor. Commute by an equally impressive Flotilla of support boats. like this ?>



Anyone ordered?
Not as far as I am aware.....

How much ?
rofl
The reason I asking about the cost was because its such a unique design will it cost more than the £1m per meter rule

I would be surprised if it ever got built, probably more a fancy concept, if you did dock it l would imagine you would be charged for multiple berths due to the excessive beam of it.

The build qaulity of Wallys is also not 100% atleast on there early tenders

Rumour has it that Eclipse was remodelled so many times that its cost is approaching $1bn

this could turn out to be a nice thread

here is lionheart + lion cub one of my favs

Yuk, horrible boat the quality is not there compared to other manufacturers and it is a very impractical yacht ;-)


Mike
i am sure mr Green manages a good time on it
I know he does, but comparative to other builders it is not the same quality, thats not an opinion it is excepted fact to be hoonest
In what way? Lionheart was built by Bennetti IIRC who, while maybe not in the Feadship class of quality, arent exactly renowned for being cr@p

Hvaing been involved with a build at Benetti and also at Feadship there is a glaring difference in quality and attention to deal, "crap"is not a word l would use as that is not fair to them, not top of the range is maybe better, again this is just my opinion

Sailed past that in St Tropez last June - not my favourite boat but wouldn't say no!

Alfa Nero still my favourite.
