    We've been covering Sailing Yacht A in the Nobiskrug forum since 2015. Over 315 posts, which is too long! Here's the link...

    Just back from the Miami Boat Show. Maybe someone can upload a few pics of A to this thread? I think there's a couple videos in that thread as well.

    Released.

    Actually no part of these events is particularly unusual.

    Often builds end with some disagreement over remaining amounts.

    Also, not unusual for the party seeking money to have to take action. In this case, the builder was the one owed so took it with the arrest.

    And, in cases where the funds aren't an issue, just agreeing on payment is, not surprising at all that there was an agreement almost immediately upon the arrest. Probably the builder kept pushing and wasn't getting the response they wanted, so now they got the buyer's attention.

    Now, all will hug and it live happily ever after. Well, I doubt the hugging part but ultimately a small blip in the overall build. Owner has a boat that many would call really ugly, but definitely a one of a kind. Builder has most of their money. All go their separate ways. It's a shame lawyers have to get involved, but often they do.
