    Now that's hot!!! but what is up with the size though? Kevin would probably like that. Would be nice to see Lar's take on this as well. Looks real nice to me. Thanks for the pics of this beauty WestAust. I see Feadship got to their heads with the bow tender storage. That tender must be huge.. looks about 32 feet long.

    I possitively, unequivocally hate the grey hull color. But otherwise this design really grows on me. Has a nice tension to it that reminds me of some of Bannenberg's more risky projects. Espen's best effort yet?

    Thanks for posting the pictures, a very nice design and I like especially that the owner didnĀ“t want accommodations all over it...:)

    Besides Skat, this is definitely the best design from Espen Oeino! The forward deck seems to be divided in a leisure area and a docking area with a storage and helipad in between.

    If I should compare to my portfolio, the concept is a mix of the Modea (the half decks and the mast arrangement) and the Mexican Bullet window styling.

    hm i think i have to disagree, that it's the best design from Espen Oeino...in my
    eyes "PRINCESS MARIANA" is his best design :rolleyes:
    this design isn't bad but i think its a bit too sharp - maybe i would like it more if it had a bit more sundeck area on top.

    I think i might agree with Brunick, Princess Mariana is it! but that is not to dispute that Silver is not a great design because it is. For some reason she looks vaguely like Pelorus just a less shapely Pelorus. Skat is a great design as well, i just love the militaristic look to her, she is aggressive. With Silver i find that she seems to have a Mangusta bow, what do you guys think?

    LOL What's that supposed to mean?

    I will say this: It's a very interesting design. She looks a lot better from some angles than others. I need to go find the pics, but I'm getting a little Mood Goddess vibe, especially when looking at that profile image... something about the window styling.

    The aft end is all Limitless though. :)

    No I meant the size of the images that West Aust posted initially before admin rectified it. At the same time I thought that you would like the design, it looks Pelorusish especially at the stern, I'd give you 60% on saying it looks like Limitless on the aft.

    I asume that you meant Moon Goddess Kevin;)

    But don't you think she has a big Mangusta bow?
    look at this Mangusta 105'

    Princess Mariana is certainly impressive. But on Silver I think the superstructure is in better harmony with the hull design.

    Ok, gotcha'. They were down to a normal size by the time I saw them... that's why I didn't get it.

    The difference is that Pelorus has some super structure extending almost all the way aft, each deck proportionate to the next (seen here) whereas Limitless has the large open area (seen here), which is what Silver also has (seen in the two pics above, bottom right of the collage).

    Freudian slip! (girlfriend on my mind) LOL

    The bow looks a lot like a typical speed-boat actually... it's very cool. Without a point of reference I find the bow does a good job of confusing the perceived size of Silver.

    I think you are right. When I first saw the pics last night, I did not believe this vessel was actually 74M. When I saw the first pic with her out of the water and the shipyard crew posing next to her I then got the sense of scale.

    There is one that plies the Bay of Fundy ferry route in Newfoundland called The Cat ferry that has a similar hull.
