I don't think I remember any other yacht besides Shu and Thunder (maybe Azzam) that took this long to deliver since launch from Lurssen. Other yacht I remember is sailing yacht A that took forever to launch. I started a thread on this on general discussion on how each yard is different in their delivery methods. Dutch yards such as Feadship and especially Oceanco I think launch yachts much more complete than German yards. Look at the delivery timeline of project Bravo from oceanco I think it delivered under 2 months after launch. I think Crescent/Project Thunder is one of the most impressive yacht launch in years and I hope too see her around. I think the press release mention of "cruising asian waters mostly" is a decoy, and this yacht is for a very experienced serial yacht owner.
