    I saw this boat in person (from the exterior) at Pier 66 in Fort Lauderdale a few months ago. It is a beautiful boat. The paintwork and fairing is very good and the boat looks much larger than it's size. Very nice lines on her.

    Lars,

    I undeleted this thread because the information is in the public domain now.

    Good size comparison to the "Solemar" in the background.

    and pool like Alfa Nero , you just can't see Seven Seas spaces not
    so obviously .

    I was onboard 7 Seas last summer during the HISWA tour. Had no idea it was SS's boat, but it explains the technology they put into the theater. Rumor has it Spielberg might be making his own Pirates of the Caribbean flick, sans the owner of "Vajoliroja". Kind of an irony in all this... from Raiders of the Lost Ark to a modern day ark by Oceanco. Good for him!

    Here's one of YF's wallpapers of 7 Seas...

    Any chance we will sea YF review? She has a nice interior but the photos of her interior that were released were limited so I would love to see more and, hopefully, the layouts.

    Sending it now. On another note, isn't this a duplicate thread of a thread in the Oceanco Forum called Y706? Shouldn't they be combined/renamed perhaps? Just a thought for organization...

    I always wondered if there is a regulation that it is not allowed to have the windows obscured at the helm station? I think it disturbs the design of big yachts like 'Seven Seas'...

    I don't think yacht designers, the owners build captain, and the shipyard would be retarded enough to obscure the windows at the helm station used to run the vessel.

    I dont really see why he should be "forced" to have it flagged anywhere... Despite having a company in one place or another... Or are you implying that only americans saw his movies and therefore he owes only america and americans a debt of gratitude for his work, and no one else? (I'd argue he doesnt owe anyone anything since he's worked for what he has, but hey, since we are discussing, if we are to make him "indebted" why make it only to where he was born?)

    He is (and should be) free to flag it wherever the heck he wishes! thank god for that! :D (Isnt it the land of the free for a reason?? :p)

    PS: flagging in the US is quite restrictive and very few of the larger vessels are us flagged for a variety of reasons...mostly non-financial reasons from all I've seen - crew is a BIG reason, but there are others, no one (independent of nationality or patriotism) wants to be more restricted as opposed to more free in how they can operate their yachts...so for most it just isnt worth it to fly their home-flag... (See how many US, french, english, russian, italian, etc flagged yachts there exist, vs the owner base... now compare that to marshal or cayman flagged yachts vs marshal or cayman beneficial owners? catch my point? its the whole point of a flag of CONVENIENCE)... yachting is difficult and complex as it is, no reason to tie yourself and make it even more complex

    Milow, that is correct. There is a rule in the Large Yacht Code (a derivative of the SOLAS) for clear glass on the bridge.
    This has mainly to do with visibility at night, when you really want all the light from the outside to come in.

    Sometimes, form needs to follow function...

    Hi,

    While you often make posts saying how much you know about foreign flagging and the such like I would suggest that an easy answer to this question can be found by reading the Jones Act.

    There is a cut off point for at around 200 GRT for the US Flagging of Non US Built vessels, special cases have got around this however.

    The Yacht Limitless built in Germany if I recall correctly got an act of congress changed to get it's flag on the back, a fleet of Kuwaiti Tankers so they could be "protected" by the US Navy.
