    I have been trying to get hold of pictures of Thunder B's bridge for a while now, but alas not successful. I am interested to see what view you get over the enclosed bow section. If anyone has any pics I would be very grateful.

    Will hope to post images of DML's Project 94 (Appledore) as soon as she comes out of the dry dock.

    Thanks

    I was very fortunate to be given a copy of the original Thunder brochure produced by Bannenberg when i met Dickie Bannenberg earlier this year. Even that does not have a view forward from the inside bridge. There is one looking over the bow area from the starboard side of the bridge, from outside. Some amazing interior shots nontheless.

    Having researched this boat myself, it is very hard to find interior photos, and to some extent, exterior photos. It has been quite a private boat since birth.

    Yachtmati has a photo of Thunder on his website, you can see the huge bridge windows would give a great view over the bow.

    Need pictures of Oceanfast Thunder B bridge & internal.

    Thanks Jon, I have seen similiar photos on WebCommunity for the yachts around Monaco / Med.

    It does seem unusual for a yacht of this calibre not to have more pictures around, rather secretive especially from Oceanfast.

    Any photos of Bridge, Engine layout and any other for that matter would still very much be appreciated. Oceanfast were not forthcoming!

    Edmiston - As you are brokering this yacht any images to pass on?

    I was surprised that her asking price wasn't really high.
    €5million

    Maybe she is in need of some upgrading.

    That is the greatest assembly of confused ideas I have ever seen.

    From the listing:
    " Bannenberg & Rowell is responsible for her beautiful exterior and interior design. "

    Was this their first go around ?

    The original exterior and interior design was Jon Bannenberg. Not sure who did this refit. Here's a link to when she was previously for sale that shows the original interior.

    This just proves that high-concept design dates so badly. Stick to clean and simple classic, can't go wrong.

    Crew area wasn't bad.
