Didn't Air just get sold? Like last week or two weeks ago maybe? Was it the previous owner that didn't want published pics? Or the new owner?

Yes, AIR was sold through Nigel Burgess recently, but this doesn't change anything. Whether it was a fiduciary agreement between the yard and the principle, or an independent decision made by either party, we must respect their wishes.

While it is possible the new owner could have photography made, it's also possible the sales contract may have contained a stipulation restricting the use of AIR images, for whatever reason.

The most intriguing aspect of AIR was the engineering and propulsion system. We can still discuss this. We can still write about it. And in time, there might be something else similar in nature that we can cover.

I think the folks at Lurssen were a little dissappointed that AIR could not be featured as well, because it sounds like AIR really showcased some of their engineering talent. I'm sure there will be other Lurssen feature reviews in the future, but for now there are plenty of other yachts we can cover... including a few that mere mortals can afford.

Need to get my facts straight about Lurssen I have a rough idea, but wanted some backup for a meeting tomorrow:
(sorry could work it out myself but if anyone know off the top of thier head, cheers)

1. how many boats they make a year?
2. on average what the max/min prices/lengths of boats they make each year?
3. turnover?

Thanks

All I did was look at the examples in the Lurssen forum here -

http://www.yachtforums.com/forums/lurssen-yacht-47/

Those sizes range from 50-120M. With far larger proposals being floated (Ok, poor pun).

little help Kelly

You'd need to do some serious digging to get those answers. Yachts are a small part of the concern. They have produced some very successful naval military vessels. Just my opinion, but if you want something built and have requirements that go beyond the norm, Lurssen can deliver.

Just stating the obvious if you are intending to do business with them. Call your banker. Depending upon how much you are in to your bank for, you'll get varying amounts of information. Banks do not like to lose money, even if you are the one on the hook for it. :-)

Images for Queen M and Phoenix are available now, but we will need to wait a couple of months for images on Northern Star or Air. Personally, I would like cover "Air" (ex-Rainbow), because it represents new technologies in power & propulsion... and it may be a glimpse into the future.

What would you like see a feature story on?
air for sure. now how about one with Azipods?

Actually... AIR uses Azipods.

While we won't be featuring AIR, we're going to take a look at the power and propulsion behind this build. More on this later.

New Yacht Report features AIR as well...

The new Yacht Report already features some pages about the ABB Azipods installed on M/Y AIR! Funny title to the story...
Can Yacht Forums offer some more?!
