    Thanks YN, totally awesome! I just love some of the yacht videos being done lately showing off how these babies so dramatically move through the water to the beat of bombastic music really gets my adrenaline flowing.

    I am not sure why more owners, especially those with boats languishing on the market for in some cases years don't spend a few thousand to produce just such an exciting video to renew interest in their project???

    If I were in the market and came across a video like Ulysses it would sure get my attention!

    Yeah I agree and the video was moving nice and slow, good to grab all the details of the exterior. I want to see an interior video though.

    Tales of Brave Ulysses

    Every time I watch the Ulysses video I can't help but think of this version of his story.

    Tales of brave ulysses - YouTube

    IMHO the power of the song and its imagery really fits the bold beautiful powerful lines of the yacht.

    New concept based on DAF by Evan K Marshall. The 63.5-meter called "Skyfall" has updated styling and elements he felt that were left out on the DAF. Possibly a piece to come on this! If the name Skyfall sounds familiar to you, it's because it is the name of the latest James Bond movie and of course you know the story of the owner of DAF and his other yachts that all had names of precious Bond movies.

    Benetti seems to have updated their website a bit and they added a section where you can see their "CLASS" boats and which hull is under construction for which year of launch. Seems like they are still working on the site though because alot of elements are still missing.

    According to Benetti it seems as though FB258, the 54-meter might have been launched. They indicated it was for October launch. Anyone seen this yacht, other than the blue-hulled rendering, but in reality in the open?

    Apparently there was a fire at the Benetti Livorno yard in Italy. She fire has been contained by yard and fire fighters. Allegedly one yacht under construction has been damaged but no word which one it is at the moment.

    Oh man I hope nobody was injured and the yacht was not damaged that much at all... there is quite some smoke coming out of that shed though.

    The fire at the Benetti Livorno yard caused 'only material damage' to a hull that was fitting out in that section of the yard. No details still as to which hull it might have been.
