    Many, here are two more, Alfa IV leaving the Rotterdam harbour for the first sea trials.

    (out of topic mode): The Dilbar left OceAnco yesterday for her first sea trials, only 4 days after the first river trial !! That's amazing

    M/y Alfa Four was indeed a masterpiece of design by oceAnco. In all areas, the interior and exterior. What i particularly liked was the pool..very interesting with the frontal glass facade. Off course alot of engineering had to go into that piece alone. Anyhow.. i came across this nice but short PDF on the Alfa 4.. well when she was that.. name on the oceAnco website..

    Thought I was going mad

    Hi All
    I'm new on the site. Saw the pics and recognised it as Ämbrosiana. But you all calling it Alfa 4.. I knew sometime ago that She was renamed after the original German owner pulled out but never Knew what the new name was... Wasnt till I just checked out the PDF that I saw the name Ambrosiana.. So nice to see her afloat..Spent what seemed to be a life time designing a lot of the Engineering on her. Still have the original drawing for a lot of it.. She was one of my favourites.. Alongside Lady Christine and Pegasus that is... Nice pics anyway.. I have a lot of pics from all the yachts by oceanco up to Lady Lola, if anyones interested I'll dig them out and post them:)

    Ambrosiana(Alfa1v) original designs

    Taking me back to the good old days finding these. This is the originasl Model for the lazerette of Alfa IV. I still have contact with the original Captain and we often talk about the project.. This was a 'one man/one compartment ' idea. it worked for this boat but not so well for the others.. It would be interesting to see if she was finished to these original concept Model. I was told by the captain she was but knowing Oceanco the way I do, I doubt it. Ive just been looking at the original CAD Model to get these JPGS. So strange.. The file is some 6-7 years old now.:( :(

    Launch

    I was reading thru the rest of this thread cos my pics were moved(not a complaint) I saw a question by catmando. Hope that person stil visits as it was asked along time ago. The bigger yachts are infact rolled onto a floating barge then towed to rotterdam and like basbas says it all sinks.. I have a question though.. Why was Alfa IV take on the barge.. shes not really any bigger than Lady Christine or certainly Pegasus(after the extention) and they and a lot of the others were launched on the platform at Oceanco. the tractors roll the yacht out of the hanger at about 1" p/s wheel it round to a permanent lift just big enuf to take a yacht of this size . then the lift takes the boat down on massive hydraulic(I think) rams, then she simply floats off. The 80mt + yachts are to big for this way. So why was Alfa taken. is the lift finally given in or is there even less water round the factory. I have some pictures somewhere of a lot of the earlier launches. I'll dig them out.. If you go to the Al mirqab thread you can see a foto there of the tractors under the hull on a foto I posted this morning of the propellors:)

    The OceAnco "Alfa IV" seems to have a new name, "Sea Pearl" according to her builder.
