    Some more from Palma harbour as of today

    1. Sailing yacht Saudade, built by Baltic yachts and one of the fastes SY. I have seen her stern more often, than I like :). Still in racing mode. Hardtop removed and new permanent gennaker pole.

    2. Sailing yacht Adele, a very beautiful example of classic design and some others which are not so important :D.

    IMG_02.JPG

    3. Classic Yacht Lady Georgina. A canoe stern Amels yacht from 1982 with refit in 2007, 48 meters long. The boat is in great shape.

    IMG_04.JPG

    4. 2003 Delta Yacht, 38 meter. I really like this trawler design.

    IMG_03.JPG

    5. Some more Perini Navis at Astilleros de Mallorca Shipyard. Very busy refit yard. Hard to get a slot, if not booked in advance.

    Some more:

    1. Annother example of classic yacht design combined with todays technology. The 1995, 31,5 meter Yacht Astralium. Built by Lowland Yachts in cooperation with De Vries Lentsch.

    3. What does the typical (normal sized :)) charter yacht do around Mallorca, when having guests on board? Actually, hanging around on the hook and pampering its guests to the max. possible. Not to far from harbours or towns, giving the ladies the chance for a no notice shoping tour and the chef for buying fresh food. Here the 2011, 58 meter Trinity Yacht Carpe Diem with her toys deployed and tender ready to launch.

    Pictures from today. SY A on the hook just outside of Porto Portals. Her "tender" going in and out of the harbour.

    Here is my all time favorite, SY Athena in Palma Harbour. Could not go any closer, as there were under water construction in progress with divers in the water. They are converting this part of the harbour into Med Mooring. What a beautiful and well kept boat and with its latest price reduction "almost" a bargain.

    Last one for today, a very nice Nordhavn 47 with an owner couple from England on long time / long distance voyage. These little but seaworthy boats are amongst the best boats for retirement at sea, for people with a "normal" amount of money.

    A friend oft mine saw the "A" about a week ago in a rather small spanisch port and told me that he considered it offending that this monstrosity dominated the small town port like a Cathedral in a 10-house-village.
    Not my discription, but I thought it was not completely inadequate to quote him... :D

    That is what I would call monstrosity. SY A is IMHO just ugly and useless. But these floating "things" are an offence in the eye of any beholder. BTW., pictures from the same day. Palma has app. 360.000 inhabitans but those monsters dominate even this large harbour. These two cruise ships produce more polution than all cars and trucks together on the island of Mallorca.

    Scary! Not sure what´s worse, looking at that flaoting appartment complex or beeing aboard. And these vessels definitely dominate a whole town, from the pollution aspect to sheer size and everything. Why would anybody spent his/her holiday aboard a floating shopping mall with apartments and a theatre with parts from Disney musicals??? Just to be puked into a nice town with 2000 other 3-hour-visitors from the same ship?

    Home cooked pasta and unlimited drinks for anybody who is able to make me undestand the desire to do something like that... :D


    By the way, concerning "A" I didn´t quote literally as that would be really offending and i would have to wash my mouth with soap. ;)

    Her tender is almost as ugly as her mothership

    This was the boat, my last camera was ruined with an illegal Laser Pointer from by a bored crew member idling on the aft deck of Aglaia, a 2011, 216.54 ft Vitters yacht. New owner, new crew, new name (now called Anatta), so I can tell. The camera was easy to replace and I got lucky away but my bosun had to undergo eye surgery and had eye trouble for several weeks. Some owners have problems with tender comming to close to their boats but this a narrow part of Palma Harbour. One will always be close to someones boat.

    As requested by member Lenny, some pictures and info about the Moll Vell area of the Palma Harbour. This is the most convenient located part of the Palma Yacht Harbour. Closest to the City, surrounded (within walking distance) by yacht supply companies, repair shops, yards, spare part suppliers and some of the nicest restaurants and bars of Palma. Actually, the restaurant behind the pier has some great food. If Your Chef wants to buy fresh food, exclusive beverages, etc. have him take a taxi to the Mercado Olivar in middle of the town, may be 5 to 7 minutes by car. Most of those indoor shops deliver to the boat. And for Your wife, the most exlusive and best shopping area of Mallorca is just across the street, the "Born". You picked the best place in the whole harbour for Your size of boat. Will look for Grand Cru arriving tomorrow.

    Btw. long tome ago, this type of "little" Jongert was my first non "plastic" sailing yacht, I owned.

    Watched the deloading of Grand Cru at Palma Harbour. Grand Cru was located in the last row on starboard on the dock ship and the second ship deloading under her own power. The bigger boats had to be towed out by a little Tug. As GC was waiting for her tender to be deloaded, I left the scene for Dinner. Will go back out to the Moll Vell Jetty after Dinner to get some pictures of Grand Cru in her mooring.

    As promised, Grand Cru in her mooring box. Applaus to You Lenny, a well kept and perfectly maintained boat. Really looks like new. And Grand Cru has a very nice crew, I must say. To bad, it was to dark for front quarter shots, will make them on Monday, if weather permits.
