    "Flying Fox" is now available on the charter market with Imperial. There are some nice photos but unfortunately only showing specific deck areas. No Interior shots so far.

    Wow that was fast. Wasn't expecting her to be available for charter so soon.

    Probably for tax reasons, remember eclipse was for charter on paper as well, but never available on dates required. Is there a link for her charter page? Thanks

    Gentlemen, I've removed the unnecessary owner discussion. We can focus on the design, the style, the engineering and the build... not who foots the bills.

    Hi Kevin, while I do understand that some threads gets fixated on the owner identity a lot and it diverts the thread from the yacht itself, the owner(s) identity could give lots of hints to the yacht itself, some serial owners are continuing to push the envelope and they deserve to be in the conversation. Thats just my 2 cents.

    I've noticed that Flying Fox carries some tenders that were onboard '6711', namely the limousine (the one that had the fire), the catamaran and probably the Nautique sports tender.

    6711 was formerly the support vessel for the 2011 Nobiskrug built Flying Fox, she was sold (reportedly with her Triton submarine) back in January last year. Interesting that for all the supposed benefits of a support vessel this owner has discarded it in favour of a bigger yacht.

    There are 7 photos of Flying Fox's interior on Imperial's website. She has a very serene interior, I like it.

    I agree, its a stunning interior, very relaxed. It looks like there is at least one double-height space on board to.

    The photos also show the interior design challenges associated with using the full beam of such big yachts.

    It's absoutley beautiful! Flying Fox definitely has one of the best interiors of all yachts. If I had a large one like her I would use Flying Fox as a example and wouldn't change a detail.
    The double height space on board these yachts seem to be getting more and more popular.
    Owner has truly great taste!

    Yeah, love the double height space. I know that Sailing Yacht A has it too. Do you know any other?

    Off the top of my head, Reborn, Axioma, and Serene have them. There are others that I would have to look into to recall correctly.

    I would guess Creseant. There are probably a few others we don't know about and might not know about.

    The lines and plants are a great addition on her as well. The design is very clean. I hope this double deck height space becomes more common with future yacht owners.

    "Sherakhan" (to a lesser extent in her dining room), S/Y "A".

    The douple height salon of S/Y A is the most impressive room I have ever seen on a yacht.

    Curiously, the ceiling heights in Flying Fox look relatively low...?
