    Tarek,

    I've just had a '90 sitting outside my office for the last 2 weeks. The old skipper told me some of the owners put the platform down in rough seas as a staibilizer. :eek:

    It also is a nuisance when picking up the tender when it's a bit choppy. The RIB thumps on the mounts while the platform rises.

    Sunseeker and other builders only hold these daft platforms on with a few bolts and not as an integral part of the hull structure.

    Not quite my idea of an advancement

    It looks like a direct copy of Neptunus 55' Royale which has been out since 2006 with different windows added to the hull......

    Look at the boat and profile from the rubrail up, it is almost exactly the same. The front deck, the house/bridge area has the same profile. The hull is slightly different.

    BTW, I managed and ran that particular Neptunus in the picture for 2 years until it was recently sold and shipped to Portland, Oregon. It has a beautiful interior, and was nicely finished all of the way around. Cherry wood inside, light bamboo flooring, and polished stainless knobs and fixtures. I have lots of good memories of her, we kept her at Sampson Cay in the Exumas last winter. Thats an early picture before a cafe style canvas was added to the back of the house.

    You are right. I see some similarity above the rub rail, but I think you will find many similarities in a large part of boats this size. It is the small details that seem to make the most difference (for me at least when it comes to boats this style and size range).
    The Neptunus is still a nice boat.

    It is. I currently manage and run one of the 55' Cabriolets. That was the only Royale ever built.

    LOL - you are a couple of steps ahead of me re the tender then, as you already bought one in silver! Looks great

    Good to bump into you again at Fairline on Friday. Hope all goes well with the new t58 (I'm losing track of your expanding fleet!). All fine here; my s78 is 99.9% finsihed and the whole Fairline team have done a great job both with t he base build and the custom work, which is the biggest amount of customisation they've ever done on a boat. Handover to me is this week. Catch up with you in the Med sometime

    Was a pleasure seeing you again :).

    Best of luck with your S78, she's gorgeous and I am sure we will meet again in the near future.

    Nice. I like the gold better than the silver actually... it's not a blingy gold, which is good. Kinda' subdued, but rich.

    By the way, how many Fairlines is your collection up to now? :D

    I was beginning to wonder the same thing Kevin! Mr. Tarek has a fine Fairline taste in his mouth!

    Light gold looks much nicer than it's silver sibling.

    More pics!

    Golden Targa 58

    I am glad you like it......here's another picture I took when we arrived in Port Said a few days ago. We are back in the Red Sea now and I'll take better pictures which show the light gold color very nicely.
