Is "Valerie" on her sea trials or inside of the docks?

@ K1W1: Thanks for sharing

Hi,

I am told that the floating dock that took the hit was empty and was being prepared to receive it's next hull when this happened.

The "Valerie" is not at the Lurssen yard where this accident happened on the Weser River.

Oops.

The voice on that clip is hauntingly familiar for some reason. Are there Antipodeans giving English lessons to German river dwellers in that area?

Marmot - you have such an incredible way with words. Your knowledge is one thing, your means of conveying it is just awesome!

Wasn't Valerie supposed to have a black hull?

Surely I'm not the only one to see the irony of this image...

Project Firebird was showcased with a black hull in renderings but do remember that the hull colour can change during the build process according to what the owner wants. Project J-24 (now "Phoenix2") had a black hull in some earlier renderings. Her final colour is a kind of ash grey. Lots of things go on behind the scene that you would not be aware about so it should be no surprise that a yacht's colour might be different to what you see in renderings.

TV and Polar Star have left Rybovich. Anyone have any pictures of the two with their new paint colors?

Not "TV" or "Polar Star" but here is "Rising Sun" under refit at the time, at Lurssen sporting her new colours on the mast areas and modifications to the aft deck overhangs -which aren't fully visible in the photo-.

I can tell you that "TV's" hull is now grey...retains the white superstructure. "Polar Star" also retains her distinctive blue hull it seems.

Some cool pictures of Phönix 2 on Andrew Winch's website,
unfortunatly no interior pics..

http://www.andrew-winch-designs.co.u...tor-yachts/96/

Also I heard that Phönix 2 is going to get / got (?) a bigger Figurehead at the bow
and a bigger swimming platform ,too, at Lurssen Rendsburg.
So she will be longer then 90 meter.
