Speaking of stepping on board, is anyone else wasting far too much time on these virtual 360 tours.

Here's one of Ace.

On the delivery voyage in 2012 we popped in to Portland. The owners Butler showed my good lady around the interior including the 'Marylin Monroe' room with a nice big colour photograph of her on the wall... He was most dischuffed when she pointed out that it was Diana Dors.

Just seen a post of Facebook, appears some strong winds pushed Black Pearl in to the quayside in Montenegro.

Have to say, the side of the yacht looks better that the quayside in the pics!

What a shame, that looks really messy. Must've been a hell of a wind to do that.

Just looking at where it is and the orientation of the berth it's very open to a due Westerly blowing through the entrance to the Bay of Kotor (I think...)

Unless they have subsequently moved it, it would need to have been a due north wind to blow it on to the quayside. From the current position and orientation on vesselfinder, I would have thought a due westerly would have been blowing straight in to her stern, unless it was hitting the land and turning.

I bow to and all that - but it does look bloody exposed, doesn't it!

Is it best practice to slip free and head out to sea for these weather events like this with a vessel that size? If so I assume the blow was not forecast or stronger than predicted?

Nothing a bit of dock time and paint can't sort - (and concrete for the dock!)

She just had a fettle in dry dock sadly.
Also I would think she was pinned on - very hard to spring off without possible further damage perhaps.

(I also guess its all thrusters etc for her parking versus 'springing' )

The skipper has posted a video saying some lines broke and they were recording 60+ knots and other vessels 80+ knots. All just superficial apparently.

Yes. We got Captain Chris to post a video giving a brief explination and thanking the marina staff and other yacht crew for coming to their assistance. It is the yachts normal berth and we have spent quite a few months there in the past. As someone said the yacht has just had a drydock period with full hull respray..... Hopefully we have some spare paint left.

Quite a few yachts in the Maldives, amongst them was Bleu de Nimes:



Has had an interesting life, started out as degaussing tender then converted to a private yacht and recently extended again. She stood out with her more "purposeful" lines!
