    Oh, that Barbie reference is HILARIOUS! I think my sister had something like that growing up.

    So, is the 007 a reference to the odds that the owner will be able to resell that thing--as in .007%

    0.007% is optimistic!

    I think it means a 0.007 micron color coat that would wash off easy!

    Wow, she's looking a lot better than the last time I saw her. She was tied to the mooring in Villefranche bay with another of the old Owner's boats. A Filipino skeleton were looking after both boats, running one genny between both. The Owner was bit short cash at the time IIRC.

    Now we know where Phillipe Starck got his inspiration for the design of 'A' from. :rolleyes:

    eyes of the beholder

    I guess it's all a matter of taste but I find these swept back "European" styles to be an affront to yachting. Give me the classic ChrisCraft " Constellation" anytime. Aboat should look like a boat not a spaceship.

    Too Much Of A Good Thing Gone Rogue

    In the case of for instance the new Benetti Imagination 47 I could not agree with you more!

    imag1.jpg

    I like many Benetti designs but unfortunately IMHO their new yacht does not even begin to look like even a cool spaceship.

    imag2.jpg

    There are so many wavey squiggles in her profile and odd shaped teardrop wannabe windows at different levels that they try to tie them all together with even more waves in the form of pinstripes in a weak shade of blue.

    imag3.jpg

    And what were they thinking when they put the master on main so close to the bow(see yellow highlighted area) that when she hits her first big head sea I would imagine the bedroom sliders will implode if not at least scare the bejesus out of whoever was sleeping peacefully in that luxurious berth.

    I am sorry but as much as I have tried to like their overuse use of the wavey lines and windows I am afraid for me this design has crossed the line from being imaginative to becoming a rogue!

    Came across this video which has some very interesting design ideas My Sunset Yacht Personal Space - YouTube I just wish it had been posted at a higher resolution.

    I am not sure how hard it is to make this kind of video but IMHO the artist has quite the imagination!
