Sorry Ron, I haven't been keeping up with it. So many beautiful yachts to cover... so little time. One thing's for sure, if there's news... YachtLuver will find it first! Many thanks for your hard work Ron!!!

Yacht has had major issues, but seems to be back on track. After ripping out what the German yard had completed prior to its shipment to Dubai they refitted with local skill which is believed to be a mistake. German yacht builders are quite good at what they do so ripping it out is a mystery. Rumor is that it lost a shaft/rudder on first sea trial. Have seen it on a recent holiday I can confirm it is huge. Shame it is unlikely to ever leave the gulf and any one else can see it.
