    Rock.It has been delivered and has recently been in Gibraltar. It looks like she carries her tender on the sun deck.

    2015 seems like it's going to be quite a busy year for Feadship with several launches planned. Given that 808 was supposed to be delivered in 2014, I would think she would be launched in early 2015. Has anyone heard anything about her lately?

    Nothing on 808 but I have news that 686 is giving them fits on the technical side of things with the Eco friendly "Breathe" system .launch date was May but now looks like they won't make that date .

    Is "686" the 84m project with the vertical bow which was towed to the yard in late 2013?

    Yes, very slender beam for the LOA. Single Wartsila Main with shaft generators and energy recover system. Integration difficulties abound directly from technicians mouth. Outboard profile is unlike anything Feadship has launched save Predator or Venus. 686 has glazing all the way fwd. like Venus but not as pronounced . There are photos on line of the completed hull and superstructure being towed into DeVries shed. A pool with sand and a lighted stripper pole wouldn't be a surprise . Quite a bit of fiscal belt tightening going on in the background for a two boat owner. Seems his company has been drilling repetitive dry holes in the bottom of the North sea...

    686 is one of the yachts where you can see the full layouts for on that recently posted Youtube video posted on the previous page. If you also search on Flickr, you can see that there was a screen shot posted from the frame mentioned previously.

    Thanks for the info. I just hope that someone can get a shot of her going over the Gouwe Aqueduct following her launch.

    I just saw that the former 45M "TV" one with the flag blue hull is now called "Bella Vita". I knew she was sold just could not remember her new name.

    Hello All
    Just wanted to post a follow up to Captholli on 686.
    I am not allowed to post here about the boat but asked for special permission. I am the build engineer for the owner.
    We have no delays on integration. I dont know what tech Capi was speaking to but he must have been having a bad day.
    The schedule is at present on time, and integration is not giving us fits at all.. its all pretty well done and on time. Was it allot to integrate? yes for sure, did we have problems.. only incredibly minor ones as any one would expect for a fully hybrid system. In fact I am amazed at how quiet the controlroom is at this point in the build.
    We are going to be appearing in a marina near you very soon!

    Sorry but I just could not stand seeing this posted as it was just untrue, and to me a bit disappointing.

    As for the other rumors posted above, they are rumors you will all have to wait and see. 686 is a very amazing vessel in every way. And myself, the build team and all the workers that I have seen are very proud of it.
    I really wish I could share more.

    To funny! Two PM's ago you tell me how well informed I am with 686 and then want to know my source in Alsmeer so I give you the Norweigian and you start talking about pool tiles. It's a shame you don't want to comment on the other talking points that were discussed. This will all wash out during builders trials and I'm positive that Feadship will get everything sorted including your pool tiles. I'm not walking back my posts due to your PR campaign.

    686 was floated in the shed last night. Christina B's interior will take some time to come together. I'm sure the interior will be worth the wait as she made her name working for Armani and is an up and coming designer that thinks outside the box. Can't wait for photos , This will be an interesting yacht for sure.

    I saw another photo in my inbox, showing a bit more of the hull. Of course I wouldn't say who sent me it but the hull colour looks gorgeous, now to see it in the true light of day. This is going to be one very interesting looking Feadship.
