Carl,

Will the documentation include layouts of each floor? These are always important to those of us interested in the architectural side of yacht design.

Unfortunately, the images supplied did not include deck lay-outs, although I can request them. On a more positive note... the editorial is almost complete and the images have been re-formatted. I'm basically ready to upload, but I've got to finish another project first. It'll go live shortly.

The Queen is ready to make her YachtForums debut. It took a few hours to upload, but that was easy. With over 50 pictures, it took a few days to write the story and prepare the images. Hope you enjoy the feature!

Here's a direct link...

Very very nice review on the Queen M.

Appears she really is a Queen of the oceans judging by her in- and exterior. Just 1 Q though.

Looking at the max. number of people on-board

Quote
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Owner :
Full width stateroom with lobby, aft on owner deck. Bath room and dressing room en suite.
Guest:
2 x double cabins with bathrooms en suite located on main deck
4 x twin cabins with bathrooms en suite located on main deck
2 x single cabins with bathrooms en suite located on lower deck
Captain:
1 x double cabin with bath room en suite
Crew:
4 x single cabins with bath rooms en suite
8 x double cabins with bath rooms en suite
unquote

Guests : 14 + 2 for owner = 16
Crew : 20 + Captain and spouse : 22

Meaning the SOLAS rescue boat should be capable of carrying 38 people?
I haven't seen it stored anywhere in these pictures. Or they have truley found a way to play "hide-and-seek" or there is something I am missing ... I am sure it is the latter otherwise Queen M wouldn't have been certified for ocean-going trips, was really just wondering since the rescue boat is invisible in these pictures...

Or are the suspended inflateable-liferafts on the different decks enough for SOLAS certification ?

GReetz,

S.

A large rescue boat is hidden invisible under a hatch right in front of the bridge.

Thanks Speeder! On ownership... that's not something we typically talk about, or publish. Although it is always interesting to learn about successful people, we try to respect the wishes of the owners and the fiduciary agreements that builders have with their customers.

Maarten,

I'm not sure when the images will arrive, but I'll post a note when we get 'em. It will take a few days to write the story after that. If you're really anxious, I'll send you a few images before the feature goes live.

In the meantime, we're doing two very large reviews... Christensen's "Liquidity" and Benetti's "Domani", with "Galaxy" coming shortly thereafter. Hoping to have Liquidity uploaded over the weekend.

Guys,

I'm sorry to inform... we will NOT be covering AIR. Matter of fact, NO magazine will be covering AIR. The owner has requested privacy and we must respect this. (it's not like we have a choice )

However... I've been provided with technical details on the propulsion system and powerplants, which would have been the primary focus of our review to begin with. We should also be able to feature some exterior running shots as well.

Most of us were intrigued by the technical aspects of this build to begin with, so all is not lost. I'll get started on this soon...
