    I understand the advantages with a less raked window in the terms of sea spray, sun glare and cleaning but on this particular design concept I preferred the raked one.

    About Carinthia VII, I stated earlier:
    -"I find Tim Heywood’s design appealing with the slanting aft part of the hull and I guess the blue colour adds to the similarity of “Carinthia VII” and not so much when in white".

    30m Fly

    The 25m up scaled and bow slightly raked.

    Same concept as the 25m and 30m Fly.

    Love this classical touch, a little "Leander G" with some "Jamaica Bay"...

    Thank You, YachtNews and Orion!

    I'm reposting the 72m Classic due to some colouring problems that I experience. The posted designs appear somewhat pale compared to my original ones so I have to use brighter colours and darken the background some.

    72m 5'th edition

    The top design started out as the middle one and then went through some "morphing". ;)

    So, have you laid out the interiors and designed the the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems yet? There's a lot more to designing a yacht than just the exterior lines....

    Henning, you’re taking my design way to serious. I’m not even sure I can call myself a designer, I’m a banker who loves anything that floats and when time allows, does some scribbling with a fantastic 2D program on the side.

    I would hope there are professionals in each and every one of the fields mentioned.

    I know I would like my yacht to be made by a team of specialists, the best money can buy in each field. I don’t think that level of experience and professional knowledge is to be found in every design house around, yet alone in one single person.

    I’m just a guy, who enjoys boat design. Had it been electrical or plumbing design, I probably would have posted elsewhere. ;)

    Same, same...

    I feel that some of the previous designs deserve some more attention since a change in colour and minor changes to the window configuration can contribute to the sense of a completely different Yacht, especially the “Golden Nugget”, now in white.

    The Classic has some added “old school” details such as slightly smaller windows, the mast moved forward some more and supporting structures between the decks.

    All 72m designs has almost the same interior volume and some 2,8m (9’3’’) head room before electronics and plumbing are in place (we're getting there Henning ;) ).

    Kajan, you might have to put the 'Banker' on hold ;). Another great design, keep it up.

    Thanks, Far! To be honest, I wouldn’t mind a change of scenery.
    Same 70m concept but with a ketch rig and a slightly less extreme keel.

    I didnt see this post, and have been away for a while, but i just keep amazing your work progress.

    Answer to your question: Top, side and fron view are all you need to turn 2d to 3d, less is also ok but will make problems (I try to find big images like min. 3mpixels). The blueprints will help alot but mostly you cant get them for mega yachts. Most of them are very small size.
    If you cant get any real blueprints/drawings on top side front view, you can use also pictures.
    When you use pictures for modeling the only important thing is that the picture perspective should be at minimum.
    You will need alot of reference pictures from the real boat. (Depending how accurate you want to be your model)

    Hope this helps and sorry for my language as english is not my native language. (Some users are more interested on correct typing than the subject) :) :)

    Fascinating thread guys. Keep it up, and kudos to Mike, the Designer/Banker. Inspiring efforts. I also can see your rendering tricks improving over the course of the thread. :)
