Talking

I wonder if Eclipse will add a "d" to the end of her name when a larger launch takes her first place standing?!

So as I alluded and suspected earlier, the "Katie Sue II" was launched on Monday. Any one who can capture photos are welcomed to post. If posting, please do so with the forum's guidelines on picture size in mind -640 X 480 pixels-.

Thanks Leveller Your first photo there shows in the background what looks to be the fourth 60-meter in project "Coco".

On a side note, the 2004 Lurssen "Phoenix" has been sold just in time for the new Lurssen 2010 "Phoenix2" to be delivered after sea trials and final works.

This is the new yacht on her way back to the builder a few days ago after sea trials...

Dumb question: what are they picking her up by? Do mega-yachts typically have lift points designed and built in? (sorry, biggest thing I've dealt with lifting was 33')

Hi,

Lurssen Bardenfleth is the old Fr Schweers yard, they use a side launch platform that lowers down into the river.

The modern series of yachts are a bit heavier than the platform was designed to operate with so they supplement this with the use of a floating crane and slings.

Most mega yachts cannot be lifted successfully in slings and once finished they do not to the best of my knowledge have any lifting points built in.

Large yachts and small ships are lifted normally on either a marine railway or a synchrolift system where the keels can be supported throughout the operation.

An exception to this that I was told about a few years ago is the Vosper designed WPB 110' Island Class US Coastguard Patrol Boats where the keel had to be kept OFF the blocks throughout the whole process. These boats were fraught with major problems right from the outset.

Pacific (Project Josi), the new Lurssen's 85 meter yacht, should be launched in the next days.

She resembles a military vessel, just like SKAT.
