    That was a quick sale. Her diving facilities were greatly improved and her toys were upgraded during the last refits so that surely made her easier to sell.

    Good looking vessel, but I am curious to know if anyone has an idea what the 8 disc-shaped antennae arranged on the perimeter of the roof of the wheelhouse are for?

    I was curious about that myself. They look like LEO satellite dishes similar to what Starlink produces. The owner of Wayfinder is himself the principle investor in Kymeta, a Starlink rival, so....draw your own conclusions.

    I asked the same thing back in July here: https://www.yachtforums.com/threads/yachts-in-gibraltar.3199/page-108#post-317657. Ken Bracewell replied, "Just a guess, but I would say they are for low earth orbit satellites."
