    I like the blue hill better than what's on Ulysses.

    After a short refit, Ulysses now has a faired hull.

    Wrong yacht. This is for the successor.

    Wow she looks good! I like the new hull color but again wrong yacht. But again this is the wrong yacht. This is for the successor.

    Both vessels will be having their hulls faired and high glossed.

    I think the Owner was not able to resist to the market' "musts"

    Here is a video that shows Ulysses new tenders which seem to be a Princess 68, a Vandutch, and a Midnight Express. Comes with a few others as well but those were the only three I knew.

    I believe the CC is a 53' Hydra Sport not a Midnight Express.

    Agreeed. Quite the complement. Le Grand Bleu is the only other yacht that seems to match it.

    This is going to be an impressive vessel. The fairing & Flag Blue color are stunning. The reflection and DOI up on the bow flare looks excellent. All three tenders lined up in matching livery. Quad outboards on the center console.

    For anyone that doesn't know she has crossed the Atlantic to New York. Some photos on Instagram. Now she is headed to Saint Maarten. Hopefully we can see some photos of her soon.

    I saw her in person yesterday in Virgin Gorda. She's very impressive! They were running hili-ops for someone's 24th birthday.
    Sorry that I didn't even think to take photos.

    Currently in dock in Miami at Island Garden Marina across from Port of Miami. There are some good photos of her online.

    Passed Ulysses in the Port of Palm Beach this morning. What an interesting vessel close up. So much to take in looking at the exterior with some deck systems that I cant readily identify. Unreal that a 68 ft. Princess looks small as a tender... Beautiful fairing and paint all around.

    Has anybody noticed her helipad marking changing over time? Formerly 13m radius (I assume that's what that means) and now 14m. Also, I've seen pictures for weight of 3.6 tons and 3.7, but seems to be 3.6 most recently.

    I'm open to anybody correcting my interpretations of these markings. And yes I've checked between the 2 different ships of the same name. I'm referring to the 116m currently known as Ulysses. Should I share this over at the "Helicopters on yachts" thread?

    Well... when she was doing sea trials, the D value marking was 13M and 3.6 tonnes yes. I wasn't aware that it changed.
