    Right builder. Wrong boat. It is her sister BRAVADO (although both yachts are strikingly similar :)). But I think that is close enough, you get full points. BRAVADO is a very shy yacht. She very rarely appears at the hot spots. Her twin sister Little Violet is for charter and moves around a lot in the Med.

    Darn! I didn't realize My Little Violet hand a sister. She is a very pretty well proportioned boat. This photos shows the bow of a boat with a direct relation to Ace (pictured above) and a few others that should be easy!

    This is Little Violet, different paint scheme, different stern.

    Looks like the photo was taken at MB92 in Barcelona:

    * 67m "Garcon 4 ACE" SeaAxe built by Amels (Damen Shipyard)
    * 60m "Solemates" built by Lürssen.
    * 92m "Mayan Queen IV" built by B&V.
    * 78m "Titan" built byAbeking & Rasmussen.
    * 86m "Ecstasea" built by Feadship.
    * Do not know, perhaps "Hampshire II?"
    * 124m "Katara" built by Lürssen.

    You are correct multiple times. The photo was indeed taken in Barcelona on Nevember 1, 2013. That is Feadship's Hamphire II hiding between Katara and Ecstasea. Here is another view of the yachts that has another well known beauty at far right, and a close up of Garcon 4 Ace.

    Looks like it is the 72 meter VSY Stella Maris.

    You have not experienced Garcon 4 Ace's true beauty until you have seen her underway at speed, quite a sight to behold!

    You have not experienced the true beauty of a yacht like Garcon 4 Ace until you see her moving through the water at her design speed, truly a sight to behold!
