    Yeah I saw the photo! She probably was getting paint touch up for the Winter Season down here in the Caribbean, assuming she and "Luna" are coming over.

    As I said the above, "Luna" arrived here. However, where is "Eclipse" though? Is she still in BCN having work done or she left?

    I was checking out a picture of "Eclipse" and realized something about her underwater hull. I see the normal retractable fin stabilizer but what else I do see is something tucked into the hull that looks like a larger version to what we saw in the review of the "Mary P" sportfish, the Quantum MagLift roll stabilizer. So is it or is it not...if not, what is it?

    and here is what it looks like on Mary P

    G'day Y/N,

    Mate, she runs with three sets of Maglifts a side. I'm just trying to find an image that isn't to big (photoshop isn't working). I think they were model testing the boat with 2 sets a side, but looks like they went for a third set. Cheers

    The last time I checked her AIS signal 10 days ago, She was at the refit yard MB92 in Barcelona, Spain.

    Right...haha that is what I meant, getting mixed up with other yachts. Right I know she and "Luna" were at the same yard getting worked on.

    Seems "Eclipse" not too long arrived in St. Maarten! "Luna" seems to be there as well...milling around to the Simpson Bay area if the AIS info is correct.

    Beautiful comparison! Yea she looks pretty small next to 'Celebrity Equinox'.

    But keep in mind Eclipse accommodates 24 guest and 70 crewmembers while
    the 315metre passenger ships accommodates 2800 guests and 1200 crewmembers and she is 'only' 151,5 metre longer!! :eek:

    Obviously you can't really and seriously compare "Eclipse" to the Solstice Class cruiseship. However, it still shows how big that yacht is. Remember the cruise ships are commercial...the yacht is a private asset.
