    Lots of strong and beefy concealed cranes on tha main aft deck. Do they plan to keep tenders on the aft deck? I doubt. The hatch opened below is bottomed-hinged and appears more to be like a 'beach' platform than a door to a garage...Interesting. PWC or smaller tender storage on the bow...

    Am I wrong, or ........

    was "Musashi" the name of the world's biggest battleship, employed by the Japanese and sunk during the battle for Okinawa? If so, what's it all mean?

    :confused: :eek:

    World's biggest? Sure, if by that you mean one of three.

    Musashi was the 2nd in the Yamato class, sistership to the class namesake, and Yamamoto's flagship. Shinano, the third Yamato-class battleship was altered to become a carrier, but was sunk almost as soon as she was commissioned.

    I'm fairly certain Musashi was sunk in the Philippines, not off Okinawa. Yamato was also hit, but not sunk... It was Yamato that was finally sunk in the Battle for Okinawa. You can feel free to correct me if I'm wrong on this.

    What does it all mean? It means it's rather tacky to talk about owners, but the rumored owner has a predilection for all things Japanese.

    Heard on the grape vine that there is room for (and plans) 2x 40ft+ tenders on the aft deck, you need a sturdy crane to lift that size toy!

    She has been delivered and is heading to Gibralter. According to an article, she can accomidate 18 guests and she has two master suites. One on the upper deck facing forward and a second on the bridge deck that is rear facing. Any idea why there is a need for two owner suites?

    Hi,

    On some boats I have been involved in there have been Master and VIP Suites, both to a very high standard. On one the VIP used to be taken to mean Various Imported Prostitutes. The traffic in this cabin was an eye opener for more than just the looks of the various "guests"

    In any case the reasons can and do vary but it could well be so one rental woman could be kept separate from another or one was used for the horizontal folk dancing and the other for sleeping or use by the wife of record.

    In the case of the vessel here I think it might be because there is another person who might be allowed to use the boat as his own.

    It's also possible that they built two owner staterooms for the chartermarket ..

    Hi,

    In the case of the Owner of the boat this thread refers to I believe Chartering is a non event, although he is known to charter boats he is interested in buying himself.

    Just because a boat charters are you inferring that there might not be some rental women onboard?

    If this is the case you better brush up on more than Maths and English for a successful career in the business.
