as I can obtain this 3 Full Resolution photos of the Rising sun ?
Rising Sun left Stockholm today and I had a last glimpse when she passed my house at lunch-time. Hope to see you in Malmoe soon!
We need a smilie for little greened eyed monsters
I am so jealous of you Lars, looking out over views like that! the nearest sea for me is about 2 hr drive
Yes, I like having a seaview but after being spoiled with a view over the Port of Monaco for twelve years, I didn´t really expect to see such big yachts up here in Sweden...!
So, I´ll submit another Rising Sun picture. Look at the guy hanging over the rails, gives you some idea of the headroom on this deck!
Jon, try a 6 hour drive.
lol Thanks but no thanks Went to Pheonix a few years ago! All i remember is hot and sticky!
Rising Sun is still at the Lürssen yard in Bremen, due to some insiders there where some problems with the glass elements.

This is the right site:
Rising Sun at Nice:
Might be abit slow, but Lurssen have updated their recent launches with some great shots of Rising Sun and Air (now Ice).
Here is a nice pic of the Rising sun at the Lurssen yard. http://www.shipspotting.com/modules/myalbum/photo.php?lid=322692
RS Triple screwed!!!
Who else knew that the Lurssen Rising Sun carries three propellers and not the conventional two? See here for illustration:

My guess is four propellers... She has four MTU:s with 12.000 hp each...!
Well I certainly did not see four screws in the link I posted above. However, since she has four MTU's it is a possibility? Maybe the fourth was unmounted in the image (if she does in fact has four) I think she may have four though because the 'middle' and 'right' screw looks centered and it would make sense if she had four.
I'd say four....outboard ones fwd, inboard ones aft, I think the one far right is just visible but the angles awkward. Shame those props are underwater, gorgeous looking things
(sorry, I'm a sucker for a sexy skewed screw)
I am not sure if I posted this here before on the forums but here is a nice video of RS.
What is the Cruising Speed for Rising Sun
She made a fine manoeuvre into Gibraltar Harbour yesterday (22.06.10) but her approach was slow. The Independence of the Seas (Cruise Ship) easily overtook her on approach.
Fine manoeuvre though with bow thruster clearly in operation.
As far as I know the higher cruising speed for "Rising Sun" is around 26 knots. I believe her top speed is 28 or 29 knots based on her load of course. She is fast! Seeing her floor it in open water is refreshing.
