I know only the Green Tender and didn't see other,
No I mean other than those...that might be stored behind shell doors, conventional limo tenders.
Yea I know , I wasnt shure if the tender belongs to Eclipse,
'cause I didn't see that limo tender at Eclipse.
If Eclipse has a limousine tender, she has been kept well hidden. Apart from the usual RIBs, just the big catamaran tender has been seen lately.
Regarding the tenders aboard Umbra, the limo tender looks like (if not the same) limo tender of the recently-sold Pelorus.
As for the other one, I think it's one of Luna's tenders which are stored in the lower deck.
Yea, it is the same design, you can clearly see it under the custom cover. It's beautiful though.
Found this nice video about Eclipse ,for people who're interested in,
here is the link..
I have heard that the front helipad opens down the middle and a helicopter can be lowered down into a hanger. Has anyone seen this happen or can you confirm if this is true or not?
This is true, it's a 3 section deck, the middle part moves up and down, and the two side sections moves in/outboard, to either cover the helicopter or create the helipad.
Very similar system to an aircraft carrier's deck/hanger bay setup - when a plane needs to be taken to and from the top deck. Cheers
Hope this helps.
Eclipse's helicopter lift it's this one (2nd and 3rd pictures of course):
Also, if you want to see how this kind of lift operates, just go to Feadship website and see Ecstasea's video.
Thanks for the info and links everyone. I didn't know that ecstasea has a heli hanger also.
Heres a link to a picture of eclipe next http://flownet.com/ron/blogpix/allure_eclipse.jpgto allure of the seas.
Indeed! I have only seen one photo over the last 6-7 years of "EcstaSEA's" pad in use with the heli.
"Eclipse" in Ibiza with a bird on the aft pad!!
Model of the "Eclipse" at the 2011 MYS...
Does she really have so many stabilizers?

I believe they were modelling testing with just two stabz per side. I'm guessing, but it might be possible she runs with 2 that are activated while running, with one in it's pocket. And at anchor she might have the whole set running.
Lol! I thought you were talking about some chick on the aft pad catching some sun... oh right, a heli
A little humour there Far
Any other suggestions anyone?
A quick run around "Eclipse" while she was in St. Maarten some time...
Worlds largest mega yacht Eclipse caught on video in the Caribbean - YouTube
and heli taking off from her forward pad while in St. Tropez
Eclipse in the MB92 floating dock 2weeks ago, you can that her aft main- and bridgedeck was covered.
Any ideas why?
