    Took a cruise (in the car) and spotted a couple of yachts that I was unable to identify. Both of them are absolutely magnificent and I'm not sure how these yachts have slipped by my memory (could be from inhaling once in the 70's!)

    The first is "White Star"...

    I was unable to get the name on this one. It might have been "Aspiration".

    I believe this is the old (1980 circa) Feadship "Daria", but the name has probably been changed. Anybody know?

    I remember seeing the "Lady Kathryn" back in the 80's, when she was tyhen called "Shango".

    As I remember, she was built by Cheoy Lee Shipyards, I dont have any more info than that.

    The Feadship on the third picture is probably Avanté IV, better knwown as Wedge One!

    Aspiration is a 1998 Oceanco. Never seen her in person, but I love those Oceanco's.

    OK... this White Star thing was bothering me. Finally tracked it down. It's no surprise that some of us were unfamiliar with it... it was just delivered.

    Here's some specs...

    Trinity Yachts Hull No. 029
    Trideck Motoryacht
    155 ft.
    ABS Maltese Cross A1 Yachting Service AMS; MCA Compliant
    Caterpillar 3512 B
    Aluminum hull and superstructure
    Naval Architect Trinity Yachts
    Interior Designer Dee Robinson

    I'll see if we can do a feature on White Star.

    Yes it is Wedge One, ex Daria from 1980. The evolution in twenty years is not impressing when watching the new Wedge Too. One of the ugliest boats afloat, from any angle... While the old Wedge One can be admired from any angle!

    No doubt the new Wedge One is different, but that's what makes her beautiful. Certainly not a "cookie-cutter" design, however she does resemble another dessert... a wedding cake! :D

    With all that wood... a pre-nup would be mandatory. She would be high maintenance! :D

    Lady Kathryn was built in 1977 by Cheoy Lee in Hong Kong under the name Shango II. Later she was renamed Shango A and when she was sold she got her present name. She can carry 10 guests and a crew of 7. From 1998 till 1999 she got a major refit in Florida. Her are some specifications about her:

    Lenght: 39.78m (130.5 ft.)
    Beam: 7.92m (26 ft.)
    Draught: 3.05m (10 ft.)
