Nice pics!!! That boat carries alot of toys!
Very nice collection of photos: weather, background, and so many different sorts of yachts all add up to an interesting sight!
I counted five tenders aboard Garçon? They are quite high too, compared to the LE 177/180 besides G4A.
Not sure about the claims that she can go fast in any weather: the bow is very narrow and sharp, and the bridge not that far behind..
She won't go into weather extremes much, especially with such expensive and vulnerable cargo on board, but still.
Well they can go faster than usual in rougher weather. I wouldn't say in any weather and as you say it would be stupid to go really fast in adverse weather with such expensive tenders aboard.
When Ace was delivered, the Ski Nautique tender was stored aboard Ace.
Perhaps the owner needed some space between the Hinckley and the big RIB
I agree, I remember seeing it in a photo or two in "Ace's" garage.
Here's the Hinckley whipped outside the garage of "Ace" in this photo by Christo. The J-Craft belongs to her/"Garcon 4 Ace"?

Here is a new virtual tour through the Amels yard... I must say simply impressive!

Very nice indeed. Looks like the Amels LE199 in the building hall behind "Ilona". It would be reasonable to assume that the view there isn't exactly that recent as Ilona being there for her long refit months ago.
"Bel Abri" has been sold! So do not be surprise if you see this yacht flying a new name in the near future.
So the Amels LE199 is supposed to be delivered in April 2013 so does this mean she will possibly launch in January, the latest February?
Wow, that is good news, I was wondering when she was going to find a new home as they had been advertising her like crazy!
Perhaps they will allow more time for testing as she is the first in (hopefully) a series?
Apparently her name is "Event"
That an...uhh odd name. It should spur more sales of the same model once launched and people see her in the open.

Looks like hull LE 212 #003 is on her way to Vlisslingen from Poland...Launch should be in late 2013 I guess!
Yeah, that is good...keeps the line going. I would have thought these were going to be harder to sell though. I guess the 242 isn't going to sell like the 171/7/80 and 212s.
I assumed they had one 212 under construction? So this new one would be number four?
Photos of the new LE199, they moved her to a new shed early this morning:
Dutch Mega Yachts
(And moved the third LE 212 back in, followed by a nearly finished new LE180)
I really like the reversed bow.
Best design of Tim Heywood at this time.
Thank you for these photos David! Oh man these pics indicate an incredible good looking vessel... can not wait to see her finally completed! The exterior looks pretty much finished so hopefully she will not stay all too long in that shed...
