    Wow, the new design looks a bit more futuristic than her little sisters - very nice and elegant I like it!:)
    Can not wait to see the final result...

    Hi there,

    This showdown proves that only few builder, (Lars being one), consider a timeless design, many yachts are just unbearable to look at after few years. My opinion is the main lines have to be kept, then the architecht should follow the technology and not the styling factors of the age or era, after all it is not a design for a skirt that will be worn for a season then hanged to rot in the closet! Heck, this is a design for a calassic double piece swimming suit that has the same flare since the 50's! ;)

    Great job.

    Cheers.

    lars congratulation, nicely done; both the exterior styling and usage of space in the interior of the boat is impressive. for the fly bridge i may have a suggestion; instead of keeping all the seating arrangements in the middle, would you mind putting them on the sides and freeing the middle part, which will give the feeling of open more space.

    Thanks Nilo, re the flybridge I am leaving it to the buyers to decide how they want it, some may even have it just for sunbathing.

    The way I suggested here has the same hi-lo table as a Moonen 85, giving a sunbed in the sofa. It is also easy to put a cover on the whole group and with good access to wash down the boat and to move around when docking, but with IPS joysticks on the aft deck it is not really necessary.

    I like the centered design of the sette very much and it is nice that you still give the option for clients to adjust to choice. But, isn't the seating moulded to the superstructure or its just screwed onto the deck? I think the centered design gives a better gathering infront of the aft bbq station.

    Can you give us any idea about the price range for standard specs?

    Thanks.

    Nothing is moulded in the deck up here, in fact almost all of the interior is fixed with large overhang to give a "floating" impression and with indirect lighting below.

    About the price, it is € 4,5 million + VAT with a very high specification like a glass bridge and Seakeeper gyro stabilizer.

    I still think it is a nice boat and would consider it for my next year purchase with no doubt once I cut a deal on my boat.

    Cheers.

    Talking of timeless, do you think this 10 year old design concept is right today?

    It is timeless with no doubt. I like that it has subtle lines, many builders are making the lines of launch boats look so modern or even futuristic which kind of veers from the main idea. Thi would rock with a teak fold down cover like the one on RR's phantom drophead.

    Great as usual.

    Cheers,

    There you catched me hands down, as I have just started to make a more modern version of the same boat... :eek:

    This is somthing worthy of "T/T Mega Yacht" on its stern! I like the round ports in the first design, but the second one, in my opinion, opens customization possibilities to match a grand yacht as a tender or more as a day and tow boat, something like monte carlo speed boats, perhaps a jet version for the action noise!;)

    Keep it on!

    Cheers,

    Aestetically i´d prefer the first version with the round portholes (version 2 feels like the straight portholes beeing a contradiction to the nice flow of the deck curve) and I really prefer the rounded aft corners of the windshield.
    No need for an "updated" version at all. You should not try to "modernize" a timeless perfect look, it´s like drawing a beard on the Mona Lisa. ;-)

    I Would go with the first design.

    The second design has some of the looks of a vandutch. Not that that is a bad thing.

    But the first design is a bit more retro.

    Thanks for all comments, I was going ahead on the modern Mona Lisa anyway and as Alfred is saying, it would be pretty easy to offer a custom design...

    Late last night I was playing with lines in my drawing program, and suddenly a pretty cool 125-footer was born...:)

    I guess you feel asleep smiling! Nice reverse bow and great touch adding a port for the anchor instead of having it exposed. The third line draft has nice touches that I like, such as the upward inclined pilot house glass and the blank space aft opening the deck to air, more sea friendly and less "boxy" stern.

    As usual, great designs. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,

    A sexy and modern design - I like it. Am I the only one who sees a Porsche 911 behind these lines? How long does it take to design a concept in your 2D drawing program?

    Very unique! You just designed a boat in your own image Lars!

    Alfred, I like the upward glass too, but it was a victim of "kill your darlings"...

    Milow, the three first profiles took me ten minutes, the last one about an hour.

    Carl, thank you, but I don't think I would like to get all the attention of arriving in this yacht...:eek:

    Actually, if I should build a boat for my needs today, it would look like this:

    I know it's not your style old friend. You have far too much class to be seen on that statement. Still, the design is quite unique. I don't recall seeing anything that resembles it, although I've seen some designs that resemble your work. ;)

    I'm winding down another JF day. I can't help but wonder how your designs might influence YF's airborne equivalents.
