    Copy cat? There is ALOT more variation in her design than "ACE", the different colour is working well...and more stylish too.

    Completely agree with you. And clearly not a small version of Serene, has its own look.

    She should look really stunning fully lit! I wonder if she has underwater lights all around the hull? Seems that is the normal thing now for large yachts.

    Lurssen comments on "Solandge"

    "We are happy that we have met the high-end expectations from the Owner in terms of product quality and being able to stay within budget and on time. We are looking forward for Solandge to be delivered as scheduled and finding her place amongst her peers as being a remarkable statement in large yacht construction, based on an excellent design and excellent engineering skills."

    Espen Oeino has given Niki very harmonious proportions and with a length of 85.10 m and a beam of 13.80 m she boasts extraordinary volumes. Accommodating all of the owner’s requirements she still maintains sleek and very elegant lines, which are underlined by her dark blue hull.

    Interior designer Aileen Rodriguez explains what enhances Niki's luxurious style: "The interior has classical touches with a contemporary back drop, making it a transitional interior. The unique mix of rare and striking materials gives the yacht its ultimate look and luxurious style."

    Master Yachts have implemented their personalized project management style by placing a permanent onsite project manager and bringing the owner's crew into the build team. The expertise is applied to the entire process through to delivery and preparation for the ongoing operational life of the vessel. Solandge will be an exciting addition to the global charter fleet, she represents the very latest in high-end luxury cruising. With her experienced charter crew she will without doubt provide the ultimate experience to remember. She will be cruising her first season in the Caribbean.

    From that last paragraph there you can clearly see something went wrong with *****... I am quite sure they were the project managers initially.

    Hi,

    I would not read too much into that.

    Owners change behind the scenes, management companies change behind the scenes.

    It is a normal part of this wonderful business we are all observers and participants in.

    Yeah I saw them this morning. Yes she is indeed beautiful...Perhaps one of the best looking yachts they built so far? Debatable.

    Yeah...isn't she about to be delivered. So it would make for two significant deliveries in the latter part of 2013 for Lurssen. I don't think she has been delivered officially yet but she should have been in late October.

    The charter rate is about USD 1.3 million per week, or EUR 970,000. Not bad! Each guest costs at least €12,000 per day. We need better friends.
