    It must be. The Amels "Ilona" is the 4th yacht by the owner and is also called "Ilona IV".

    "Garcon 4 ACE" is on first trials! I think her aft is the better looking part..
    I wondered what might be on the main deck underneath the tenders/toys deck.

    She ("Garcon 4 Ace") is definitely for the superyacht "ACE". Both of them are destined to be displayed at the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) in September.

    "ACE" is apparently not anymore on the MYS yacht list!

    However there are pics of "Garcon 4 ACE" showing her how she flys the Marshall Island flag... her engines does not run clean!
    I am unshure if she has already been delivered because she is still moored at Amels and was a few days ago in their drydock... has anybody an eye on that?

    That really is a shocking mess on a vessel so new! Hope those aren't CATs! Might those be generators, and not main engines? What a jolt!

    They are CATS! "Garcon 4 Ace" runs on CAT 3512Cs. In many pics you would have seen the CAT houseflag flying from her mast during the trials.

    Indeed ACE is not mentioned on the MYS listing. However, ***** Yacht & Ship have announed her.

    If you go through the list of yachts attending, you'll notice that the spot "R01" opposite the Quay de l'hirondelle and next to the harbour master's office is still not included. It would not surprise me that ***** will have ACE over there as they had MADSUMMER in 2010; a bit out of the show with very limited availability for viewing. Like Oceanco had SEVEN SEAS in 2011 at the same spot.

    95m "Athena" is booked for R01.
    However back to the thread... "Garcon 4 ACE" has been delivered today according to her managing company.

    Here is a video showing her docking in Cannes Superyacht Step One entering Port de Cannes - YouTube where slow and steady wins the race.

    Who doesn't love a yacht in the process of berthing! The lady working for the marina dealing with the lines seem to have some trouble after the tag line was tossed to her. Hope she didn't keep them waiting too long.

    You are soo right... I absolutly love docking videos more than any advertising videos... they are always so interesting! "Step One" is really gorgeous, her proportions are perfect!

    Another "Amels 67 SeaAxe" hull and superstructure arrived recently at the Damen Shipyard facilities.
    I think that sounds great does it not?!

    Well it is good that the large program is on-going after "Garcon 4 Ace" but is this new hull sold to a client or being built while trying to find an owner?

    Check out the September 21, 2012 entry Dutchmegayachts.com - Home where it looks like there may be several waiting in the wings.
