    DITTO!!!

    I can really appreciate the effort on this, because most the reviews I upload approach 50 photographs. It takes the better part of 2 hours, not including image formatting, reduction, labelling, editorial, etc.

    Thanks Jon! Excellent tour!! :) :)

    Finally found time to review all the photos. Have to say I am most impressed with the Royal Denship 82 Open (duh)!

    I noticed that 50' flybridge models were covered for Azimut, Fairline, Sealine, and Sunseeker. Which makes a nice comparison. My vote goes to the Azimut 50 . At least it gets the benefit of a full height radar arch. I have no clue at all what the other builders are thinking with their half height arches.

    Thanks for the compliments guys! It has taken quite a while to select, rename and upload everything! :D

    Still working on uploading the other photos too, but will post when they are uploaded.

    Well, without critising too much... I managed to blag my way onto the 82 at SIBS and the only place you can actually sit down to eat at a normal height table is outside on the deck! Now, i don't know about you, but i dont like eating in a draft! Fair enough you'll probably only be seeing these in the Med, but there are still drafts in the Med ;)

    By the way, Carl.. resizing the images was easy... i use a program called XnView... its a free program that converts images, resizes, etc, etc.. real useful as you can select a load of images and actually do a batch convert to do a load of different things to a selection of images. Its great. Check it out carl, it'll really help you out i think... http://www.xnview.com/

    I always thought most yachts had too many tables :p :D :D

    Thank you for making the observation. The western Mediterranean can be quite dusty at some times of the year. Grit is not high on my list of favourite condiments.
    Surely there must be some indoor dining area?

    Nope :s

    Inside the deck doors, on the port side there were 2 single seater chairs and a 3 seater sofa with a small coffee table in the centre of them and on the starboard side there were two single chairs with a small sideboard type unit with the massive TV encased in a unit.

    Ther was then, further inside, a centre partition between the saloon and the helm, which is centrally located with 3 large very comfortable leather chairs, then on the port side of the helm you down a stair case to all the living quarters and on the starboard side of the helm are the stairs to the crew quaters, galley and engine room, and at no point did i see a table (or a chair for that matter) that i could sit at and eat comfortably. Very disappointing for such a luxury yacht, and she was beautiful inside.

    Just looking through a few other photos of the 82 and you can see the height of the table amongst the sofas inside, and also even sitting at the table on the deck, the lumber support is shocking! Lean back and you're man over board! :D
