Feadship 88-meter "Musashi"

I believe that it is appropriate for the largest Feadship built to-date to have her own thread. The "Musashi" was launched on Friday August 6, 2010. I remember a while back one of our members took a few pictures of this same hull going to Feadship for fitout. Again, anyone with photos, relevant information related to the build of this new yacht are welcomed to post here. Remember, if posting pics, the forum's rules are 640 X 480 pixels. Actually she looks alot like this vessel (BELOW) that Carl photographed while in the Netherlands, hull 1003 of the XL Feadship line. So Musashi is hull 1002 while "Ocean Victory" was hull 1001.

And over a year ago, I posted this here...(Link Below). Must have been the superstructure to the Musashi.

Musashi

Does anyone think this yacht resembles Rising Sun?

The sun is rising on more than similarity. 'Musashi' was a Samurai. And therein might be the answer.

I thought the same thing as far as the similarity goes.

Then I thought, Maybe this is Rising Sun's "Mini Me"

As I said in the Feadship News thread, she does have many similarities to RS hence why I believe she is related and for the same owner.

I have quite a good feeling that "Musashi" might very well be the owner of "Rising Sun's" new yacht. The similarities are just too close. She has the same boot as RS, the same railings which look to have the led strip embedded in them. There is also a basket ball hoop on the aft main deck overhang just like RS. The yacht is all white same way and she has the large expanse of glass windows over most of the superstructure. I remember reading that the owner of RS wanted a smaller yacht so that he could at least berth in some marinas! and not having to be outcast to commercial harbours berthing with cruiseships, freighters and tankers. That is just my take on it...

Here's a side by side.................well almost. They are both very white, but I think different enough not to be confused.

The only thing that doesn't appeal to me about "Musashi's" design is how low the aft part of her hull appears to the overall proportions. However, once all that tarp comes off the aft deck overhangs and off the glass windows the overall view should be better and busier looking. She isn't the worst looking but I can't help but think she also resembles "Wedge Too".

I remember reading a long time ago that the owner of RS was strongly considering Feadship if he was to build a smaller vessel.

Two new photos of the Feadship "Musashi":

http://www.shipspotting.com/modules/...185156-Musashi

and

http://www.shipspotting.com/modules/...185152-Musashi

Shall we maybe start calling it : "Tender to Rising Sun" ?

If I'm not mistaken, 50% of the ownership of "Rising Sun" was recently sold to another American Businessman... enough to cover the cost of "Musashi" ???
