Ok I will try to hit the jackpot this week in Germany (13 million Euro)
and after it I will realize my dream yacht. Sorry for my English (my German is better
Reading this thread I found a lot of my ideas- but not all. Here you have other ideas and questions.
I want to see more places all over the world -> passagemaker
I do NOT want a crew but a lot of room for me -> 60 to 90' explorer trawler or a 50' cat (where is Winter Yachts .... no new "Pacific Harmonies"?)
With latest engine technology are 5000nm or more real?
Diesel-electric is nice, but Z-Drives are in my focus (like Volvo IPS),
can we use Schottel's SRP with electric motors? What is then the best place for the DE generators? To protect the blue planet should we go back to sails?
Can we reduce the draft to 5' for going in flat waters? (this is an argument for cats!) What about bows, axe bows etc...? I like to reduce the needed power for a cruise speed of 10 .. 12kn.
I want to have my state room on the best place in the ship ... is the 2/3 of length rule right? Could I have big windows at stern like the old sail ships? OK with a (double) door to the swimm platform ?
For a long range ship the electronic equipment should be doubled. for the bigger parts hot swap spares.
Central media / entertainment servers coupled with intercom etc..
Cams outside, so I can have my big stern window and a virtual front window
OK the ship network is connected with the Internet- not a question!
Going around the world a car aboard could be nice. I found this in other threads here. OK - can we reduce it to a bike or quad or ...?
What about security? How can I make my ship to a fortress in foreign waters?
Can I have sonars to detect big fish, swimmers and divers around the ship?
With big power generators (DE) can I have an electric tender?
I hope to start new discussions here.
