    There is only one 47m "Latitude" ex- Alexander but I had another look and the yacht catched by ombreetsoleil and she has clearly different weelhouse windows than the Timmerman yacht...

    I made a little video, it isn't really special but it's a start.

    I made it with a canon 550d from a friend. I still have to get used to it.

    I will make better videos trust me ;)

    Thanks for the positive comments guys.

    Today was a slow day with no special yachts to see, the sea was kinda choppy.

    Hopefully more yachts tomorrow.

    A few new pictures

    No real big yachts, but still a few nice ones.

    Biggest cruise ship in the world.
    A wajer osprey, a ferretti, a falcon, and a new model sunseeker.

    Not the biggest cruise ship in the world! ;) That is one of Royal Caribbean's "Eagle/Voyager" Class ships. They were once the largest but since Cunard's "Queen Mary 2" and then their two Oasis Class ships (Oasis and Allure which are now the largest in the world). The ship there in question appears to be one of the newer of those 5 ships. I would guess it is either Navigator of the seas, Mariner of the seas.

    It'd be nice if you can take some photos of her! Are you able to get close or she is way out at anchor in the Bay?
