and there it is...the garage for the Solas tender!
What I would like to know, is if those massive bridgewings are adjustable. There appears to be some space around the edges that suggest they can be adjusted outward of inward.
Nice one!!! You are right, there're huge gaps! Very weird, never seen anything like that.
Let's see if it's a new feature, design or...just a new way to flush the water away
ehmm...if I can joke just a little...a friend of mine made me notice a thing...the design of Solaris is quite similar to this thing..
Sorry about that
You are right. Designers often use the expression "kill your darlings" when it comes to details like this, but it didn't happen here...
Hahahaha that's a good one. I see it.
Solaris hit the water. Apparently her length is 138.96m and Marc Newson was confirmed as the exterior designer.
Yes, she has!!
It's a little foggy
Does she have under water lighting? Based on the inselvideo of her last moments in the floating drydock the frontal view appears not to reveal any, to me that is a bit odd.
I took a screenshot from the first video posted by Maritna_ra. I can't see any underwater lights either.
There are underwater lights only on the back, you can see them in that shot there probably 4 or 5 across the beam but in terms of along the length of the hull like you would expect, I do not see any, which strikes me as strange. I know these underwater lights are pretty expensive but I wouldn't expect that to be an issue if you can build a 450+ foot yacht.
Hi guys, I don't know how to upload a pic from my pc, but I found the lights.
In the first video, min 0:07, they are very very tiny!
You can see them also here, min 1:14-1:15
BTW I found a pic where you can see one of the stabilizers:
Yes you are correct I now see them, really did not notice them at first.
Look like the stabilizers are retractable.
Article with new photos:
I'm curious to see how the supposed helicopter hangar works.
Look at the gangway, quite original!
I wonder if Solaris has the same stabilizers that Luna has (rotary+fins) or just fins.
Never heard anything about how the Maglift performs on Eclipse and Luna.
This post should answer your question:
Only 2 fins? That's odd
So..Mr A didn't appreciate the Maglift
Is MagLifts good?
