    Does this make Pelorus a tender?

    A decoy ship? Or "A" case of paranoia?

    Photographers, watch out! Dilbar aka Opal will be transferred from Lürssen/Lemwerder to Lürssens floating dock in Berne tomorrow afternoon (high tide).

    Probably this is not the best thread to say this, but Alberto Pinto, Dilbar's interior designer, passed away :(

    That is sad indeed, He did the interior of a number of other vessels too, including "Katara" and the new Y708

    Indeed, I'm just as big an aviation fan and this bad boy always creates a stir for spotters around the world.
    Usmanov respects his parents after all, yacht named after mom, huge private aircraft named after the father. Touchè

    I belive that plane used to belong to Mr. A, when it was registered M-ABUS.

    Well for a guy who owns a 110m yacht there is a Airbus A340- 300 the proper private jet!

    Mr. A owns since a few years now a Boeing 767 called "The Bandit". Similar paint scheme to the above mentioned plane.
    IMO one of the most beautiful private jets in the world! Her is a photo from member Psdo in St. Maarten.

    Most every "toy" is always rumored for Mr.A but I can assure you the A340 was never his. As Milow said Mr.A uses a few planes the largest being the 767 nicknamed the "Bandit" Excellent stuff ha:)

    I wonder if that means she has been sold?
