    Yep, apparently she is on her way to the Caribbean already! Possibly will turn up in St. Maarten according to her AIS info.

    I never implied it did!! Just followed your link and noticed the info and posted it!

    The only thing is that the web site did not have much to tell about Vava II as I was expecting.

    Cheers.

    If only you knew how secret that project was when it was under construction. Some details only were being revealed coming up to her launch and after then.

    I agree Ron - but I do miss the varnished rails. There is just a bit too much white on her and perhaps some some quality brightwork would set her off nicely.

    Remember the pics you were seeing in the link were distance pics. It think we should wait until we can photograph her closer and see the details better.

    "Vava ii" has just arrived at the John Craane Cruise Terminal in St. Maarten after crossing the Atlantic from her builders, Pendennis Plus (formerly Devonport Yachts). Take pictures people!

    "Vava ii" is currently underway and heading to St. Thomas, USVI, anyone there, get your cameras ready! She should arrive there this morning.

    Well I do not know if she will be coming to Barbados but seeing that she is so far south it might make sense at somepoint that she pops on by.

    That was probably me talking about the complexed stern platform in the "Yachts At Bridgetown Port" thread. Love the railings they put on it though. The tender, I would like to see how that looks from the side. When she was here I only got to see two or three of her tenders, all were RIB-type tenders. That one pictured there looks like one of the guest tenders.
