    Great work Brunick, she is beautiful from close up. Seems to have a catamaran tender on the bow and a very nice looking limos (?) on her bridge deck.

    A side question Brunick. Do you happen to have any idea about the teaked area over looking the stern platform? Maybe a pool is under it?

    WOW! cool photos.
    It's enormous.
    Looks like it brought out the whole town...even has matching blue & white tugs!
    That waterway must be seriously dredged.
    I like the last photo, looks like there is a wind farm on the foredeck. How's that for alternative propultion!? :)

    Nice work Brunick - Great shots

    In one of your hi res stern shots, looks like a retractable passerelle from the teaked area at the stern to the upper deck. Can you confirm?

    jep i can confirm that, but i still don't know why. also why there's that platform - there has to be something important under that, maybe just another dinner platform

    I was wondering Brunick if it was the floor of a pool that can be hydraulically raised like on Christina O or Alfa Nero?

    Hi,

    The rails around the sides and aft look pretty substantial and fixed to make it a pad plus the Flag Staff is just in the way of the Tail Rotor of any decent sized machine.

    Actually Ken, A tender large tender might be stored under there. Remember in the early launch pictures there were some that showed a very large crane in that area? So I guess kind of like a supersized version to what Maltese Falcon has on her aft deck.

    Take this pic for example from Brunick.

    as if they don't have any tenders aboard :D

    2 on the foredeck 2 on the upper deck
    at least 2/4 in the pockets on the sides any maybe several behind the transom door

    i didn't realize that the crane on the aft deck

    maybe they need it for bringing out several toys, stored underneath?
    that transom door is about 4m(13foot) in height! so there's alot of space behind.

    Edit: i just added 2 unseen pictures of al mirqab, there you can see the bathplatform with some extras

    1.pic:http://www.brunick.de/wewelsfleth/bilder/DSC_9499.JPG

    ladder down to the water + springboard

    2.pic:http://www.brunick.de/wewelsfleth/bilder/DSC_9500.JPG

    some type of gangway :)

    Edit2:

    just saw a mecanical mode to lower the flagg staff!!
    there's a big crane which problably is for bringing down tenders to water :)

    Great work as usual Jannick. The larger one seems to be a passerelle type ladder that would angle up to the slip (a very large slip). The smaller one on the right maybe a swim ladder.

    On the tenders, Al Mirqab seems as she will have a plethora of those. The most 8 tenders and some other toys. She probably will have more than Octopus in the end.

    Regarding the aft area with the crane. I definitely believe something is stored under there. Whether it will be served as a touch and go heli too is debatable at this point and as was said, the railings look quite beefy. There is a heli-pad on the roof of the bridge like on Pelorus.

    Al Mirqab

    Yesterday we are waiting for Al Mirqab in Eckernförde, because the German TV Channel NDR brings a short notice about the ship on Thuesday. But we are waiting in vain. Are you sure Al Mirqab arrives today in Eckernförde? I am living in Eckernförde and I can make some photos.

    as i'm still looking at the ais data i'm not longer sure...

    this is what my ais give me:
    Ziel: SEA TRIAL ECKERNFOER
    Voraussichtiche Ankunftszeit: 09.06.2008 19:00:00

    but even with 20 knot they'd arrive at 9pm so i guess they're coming in tomorrow -
