Seems "Eclipse" not too long arrived in St. Maarten! "Luna" seems to be there as well...milling around to the Simpson Bay area if the AIS info is correct.

Size comparison...you see why "Eclispe" is the largest yacht in the world. The 'Celebrity Equinox' is over 1,000 feet long

Beautiful comparison! Yea she looks pretty small next to 'Celebrity Equinox'.

But keep in mind Eclipse accommodates 24 guest and 70 crewmembers while
the 315metre passenger ships accommodates 2800 guests and 1200 crewmembers and she is 'only' 151,5 metre longer!!

Obviously you can't really and seriously compare "Eclipse" to the Solstice Class cruiseship. However, it still shows how big that yacht is. Remember the cruise ships are commercial...the yacht is a private asset.

She is again at MB92 in Barcelona but why?
She has been there three times since she has been delivered 2 years ago...

Warranty work, preparing for Summer Med season obviously, hence why she left the Caribbean early.

Just had contact with wajer and wajer yachts Wajer & Wajer Yachts - Home

He told me that they had recieved an order for a new Wajer Osprey 34 as a tender for Eclipse.
Delivery will be at the end of the year.

The owner of Eclipse had seen the Wajer Osprey around his boat on the Cote d'azur.
He justed wanted one to have.
It will have the same hull color as Eclipse
