Is this hull 2 of the 78m fully custom or the first hull?
Nope, this is still the same one (#476)
DAMEN 476 was shifted yesterday from the Damen Yachting premises to the DSV yard at Flushing east from where she departed this morning for a day of seatrials.
Today 476 had second trials day
She looks good from certain angles and also top heavy from certain angles but I do not really think she is that top heavy...might just be an illusion of the paint work. If the main deck areas that are presently black were white...it would visually increase the bulk of the hull all the way back to the sweeping fashion plate.
Top heavy look is something Carlo Nuvolari spoke about at the German Superyacht Conference. He said that black is often used to lighten the top mass; and from what he said, in this case, I feel like the top sky deck structure should have all been painted black to make it disappear and balance the overall proportions. I say that because this design has 2 decks 'in the hull' and 3 decks 'in the superstructure', so it seems like it has more decks 'above' the hull then it does in it.
I understand what you are suggesting. Personally though I think what I previously suggested would have the most impact.
YN 476 (aka ENERGY) had trials in April and still at the yard, rumours are she'll leave by the end of the month.
I wasn't a fan of the design when it first came out of the shed. But, in some of these photos, she looks...better. It's amazing how camera angles and lighting can make subtle yet impactful aesthetic differences. I still think if they had extended that transom just a meter or two, it would have been better.
Seems "ENERGY" is about to be delivered...or has done so already. Checking MT...she is on the move.
