    What do you mean final destination? Like forever never going to be used again?

    "NORD" might be reflagging? to... a Chinese flagstate? That notion is being floated around now. A similar thing is being said for the "A" sisters.

    Imagine being persona non grata in so many other countries, you're forced to fly the flag of a nation that is the world's largest operator of concentration camps.

    Anyone know anything about how crew are treated/rights, if any different, with Chinese flagged boats?

    Another channel reported, that the actual main question behind is insurance. Valid insurance is needed for "everything" and European and US insurer stopped business. So now they will also be insured by chinese stepped in... Are they also accepted? Flag is international maritime law, but insurance? I'm not an expert, therefor asking...

    The most interesting aspect of those pictures and the video is that they leaked from Russia, clearly from Russian customs agents, no less. There are several possible implications from that several of which potentially speak directly to the strength - or weakness - of Putin's control over domestic government agencies. Also, to the extent these pictures are seen inside Russia, they obviously won't be received well. Imagine being an average Russian who can't go to the Apple Store or buy a Big Mac and potentially face real food rationing this summer yet Putin's best friend, the oligarch, is living like an....oligarch.

    The Sun was leaking but now the Mirror is reflecting! If it weren't for the circumstances we would have never seen the interiors of some of these secretive superyachts.

    Have you noticed that all the shelves are empty?
    No books, no nothing, very aseptic interior. It looks...unfinished.
    The best part of the yacht? The tender garage.

    I’m just getting more and more disappointed with all these leaks; these interiors are all either grotesque or bland. There’s absolutely no effort put into the interior design; Nord even had a dried flower bouquet on a table! They all look like cheap hotels from the 90’s or retirement homes. I’m starting to feel bad for Lurssen’s craftsmen for having to built this stuff. :) At the same time, the Italian yards are putting out amazing looking interiors, so at least there’s hope!
