    Orion, thank you very much for your nice comment!

    I knew you guys were up to something good when I saw “Bellezza” at the Swedish boat show some years ago and now the “Prima Donna”, awesome!

    Runs in the family...

    I guess you begin to realize the size when comparing the 200m to the 50m.

    Correction


    Orion, I'm sorry, I meant of course "Little miss Sweden" at the Stockholm boat show. Never the less, stunning design!

    Same same but different

    Same superstructure and hull apart from the obvious changes to the stern and bow.

    To boldly go...

    When on expedition, nothing should stop you.

    The 200m size allows for owner and guests to let scientists tag along to perform real arctic studies or rescue/salvage teams to do their work.
    Something extra to offer the guests on the "Action Menu".

    Meet "Moby" who likes ice!

    ... a minor design change

    I felt the need for a quick fix to the hull side since the previous design didn’t appear as intended. The openings in the hull needed the same colour as the superstructure to lighten it up some.

    The idea behind “Moby” was to combine an arctic ice breaker with a north Atlantic oilrig supply ship and then have a touch of explorer yacht added. I also wanted something other than the default set of jet skies in the garage so “Moby” packs a set of snowmobiles as well.

    10,5m

    I've been aboard several 30-35ft. fly bridge boats and felt that the space could be used in a better way in most of them. In this 34ft. (excluding 3ft. of swim platform) you will feel as in a much larger boat with some solutions you would normally find in 40ft.+ boats.

    I designed this before the Jet Ski era, hence the "simple" R.I.B.

    Kajan, u may have issues with the forward cabin, she looks to far forward. also how long is that bed? theres a standard that requires it to be 6'6" or longer. u could also remove that down stairs helm and just keep the one on the fly bridge? it allows more room in the cabin... just suggestions. cheers

    Tall Swedes


    Far,
    Short beds wouldn't work in Sweden either, so these are 2m = 6'7''. Adding 1-2 inches wouldn't be a problem.

    Interesting you should mention the down stairs helm. Had it not been there, most European customers would have reacted the opposite way, in particular the Scandinavian ones.
    The Swedish summers are a tad colder than yours and in the latter part of the summer, 10-15 Centigrade are quite normal, then you appreciate the lower helm.

    "Red Baroness"

    Did I miss any angel of the stern and bow alterations?
    At least the colour is appropriate for the season...

    In a true multi deck build, about 50M will be as small as you can maintain that proportion. Smaller than that and you will be into split deck levels, and then you can take it down to 12 meters or so before the house top line starts getting out of proportional height when allowing for headroom.

    Is she supposed to be an icebreaker? Why is the bow entry out of the water?

    Henning, I think you're absolutely right. Down to 150m and 100m, no problems but when approaching 50m it took some time to get the deck levels right and below that we're talking split levels like you said. Are you sure you're not watching me through my webcam? :)

    Nah, I've just been at this longer;) I've already run all those experiments.... The physics and rules of proportion are what they are.
