    LOL! That was my next question - didn't a turkey yard rip of a PJ design, thought it was a different design though :eek:. Cheers

    Heh heh, that occured to me last night after I'd logged off as well. We've seen Turkish knock-offs before, probably in this thread...

    When you do it as well as Palmer Johnson, you can only expect imitators.
    It should be gratifying to the PJ team to know that someone will spend millions for a look-a-like.

    Not so sure that's how PJ would look at it. When you create something and it's copied, granted it says something good about you, most business' aren't real "gratified". They'd usually prefer you buy theirs if you want theirs. I remember a very heated debate here on YF about 2 yacht designs that were similar.

    Thought I'd take the high-road on this one.

    No doubt, PJ was certainly PO'd when this "MF" (magnum force) hit the market.

    When your Brand has integrity, imitators can't hurt you... Case in Point.

    This yacht just passed my house, but my snapshot focused on the trees so the boat got too blurry to read the name, and she didn´t show up on the AIS. She reminds of a Dutch yacht I have seen here before, but this one looks bigger. Anyone?

    Its the 48m Grace, and it lives up North, not really set up for warm climates from memory. www.yachtgrace.com

    Hi,

    I hooked this off a website we can't post links to here, it was written by Peter Insulls Office originally I would say.

    Built as a commercial vessel and classed for unlimited commercial navigation, she has a strengthened hull, propellers and rudders that allow her to operate through ice up to 40cm thick. Useful, as the owner intends to take her north this summer up beyond the limits of the Arctic Circle. Built in the style of the successful passenger vessels of the early 1900’s, with teak decks, bronze railings, deck fittings and lights, she will fit right in with the architecture of the harbours and small fishing ports of the Northern waters.
    Grace is equipped for pollution-free cruising and with her extensive battery banks is capable of silent mooring at these idyllic locations.

    Thanks, then I have seen her in Stockholm before. She only seemed to be bigger now compared to when she was in a dock near the Wasa Museum downtown a couple of years ago.

    If anyone should desire to make Grace their mistress,

    Grace is listed for sale on ... by ..., asking €15 million.

    Bobby Z, The movie...

    Watching a flick called "Bobby Z" on Encore today.

    Used up my limited search options wanting to identify the boat used as the movie ended.

    All while trawler, mid-size, with three stainless/chrome smiley faces across the upper bow.


    There was a name on the side, but to small for my old eyes to make out.

    Looked like they were in the Fla. Inter-coastal maybe ?

    Perhaps PJ was asleep at the wheel.

    The super was from a PJ 92 - not yet completed.

    Perhaps the owner's time was not fully appreciated by PJ.

    Deja Vu or what...that yard has some very familiar looking craft afloat or in build, the PJ clone apart. You guys will recognise the originals I'm sure.
    On a parallel tack, I came across an advert on the web recently that was for a pre-owned 105 foot vessel I know well. The advert was for the genuine article I'm sure, the history was good, the spec was accurate, the name was irrefutable. The only problem was that all the photos of said yacht apart from the article leader were of a Turkish clone. So close to the original that it certainly fooled the authors....and considering how long the advert had been running, the brokers too.

    Just curious,

    Are Benetti and Trinity Yachts related?

    Which came first, the chicken or the egg? :D

    egg came first..

    egg came first; but this does not effect the fact that trinity and bennetti are not related to each...:D

    A little more info. I was mistaken about the three stainless bow pieces. Just one top middle of the bow, black. Oblong moon shape would describe it I guess. Throttle looked like a single, but only a quick glimpse and a hand was over it somewhat..

    Name on it is "NoWhere" Dana Point, CA. Not sure how the "Nowhere" was presented but I think I got it correctly...as "NoWhere"


    Grand Banks or Fleming I am guessing...
