    No interior photos as yet though she finally arrived in the Caribbean for her first charter season 2013/2014.

    Meanwhile "Solandge" was rumored to have damaged one propeller shaft and therefore did a short stop in Ireland for reparation.

    During the stay the crew tried to hide the yacht's identity by covering the name ironically the mystery of the yacht generated even more interests in her at the yard!

    Hi,

    I would treat the theory of damage with a bit of Brasso.

    Its a new vessel and has not done much mileage yet.

    It would take a few months to get a new prop and shaft for her, believe me I have been involved in ordering these spares for a yacht built up there and found this to be the case.

    A singing prop or vibration issue is the most likely scenario and this was corrected before her long run to the Caribbean.

    People and in particular you Milow should not always be the prophets of doom with the half assed info you seem to get. Don't quote facts till you know they are such.- This is something that will help you in your chosen career as per your PM's.

    She is here in St. Thomas. Lots of activity going on, looks they are still trying to get her ready for the first cruise with the owner. Lots of supplies showing up, shipyard techs and day workers cleaning.
    I have a nice pic, but every time I try to attach it comes out upside down.

    Looking through the feature, her interior really starts to look good. Her deck spaces are amazing and I'm a big fan of the overall layout.

    Oh man "Solandge" is soo gorgeous! I think she even beats "Ace"..

    She looks so shiny. Just out of curiosity, does someone know how long it takes for the 4/5 Deckies to wash down a yacht of this size and how often do they do that?

    There are pics of the interior of "Solandge" on another website. She looks pretty decent.

    I was looking at Solandge on AIS and she's past Ibiza heading to Barcelona. But the thing that I noticed off the bat was her name is Vbandge on AIS. News to me, just passing it along to see if anyone knew anything.

    Must have been some type of tech glitch as it all looks ok now

    It appears as if she has been sold maybe at around the 155 mil Euro mark.

    This is interesting.. I wonder if she will go under a refit for the new owners? Also, it will be interesting to see if they keep the name or change it.
