    What do you guys think about the 704 design? I think it is a stunning design....very bold and aggressive too....the only thing that strikes out at me is that she looks almost too similar to Amevi(701) and 702. The designers just cetralized the structure and very well improved it by placing an atrium external glass running the entire height of the decks......What do you guys think?

    The Y-704 has disappeared untill late next year. She has been hauled out the water and crawled into the shed at oceAnco.

    the sundeck is finished and is painted, the owners bedroom is now getting its floors laid... the next deck that will be delivered is the skylounge deck.

    Hey brunick, it is indeed interesting but I do not think she is the first to have this kind of thing done. I am quite sure "AL Mirqab" has a hidden swim ladder and passerelle in the swim/platform.

    jep it does have this, but this is special because its a fold-transom - so you can't see anything of it when it's closed :)

    Well you can't see anything on "AL Mirqab" unless you know they are there, they are hidden behind two flush hatches when not in use.

    "Vibrant Curiosity" has been delivered and has left the yard. She was last seen in Oslo, Norway.

    Cannot understand what you mean by security.
    When I was at sea we always had 2 men on port (gangway) watch and on that size of yacht and in spite of TV cameras this is very necessary.

    This is an unfortunate idea. It completely breaks what is a very good looking design. Apart from that it makes her look top heavy.

    Can't take anything away from personal opinion, but she is a lovely design. Everyone has their own tastes. There are a few lovely photos on Flickr of her in Oslo, Norway on her present delivery cruise.
