    A thread for the impressive 77-meter superyacht "GO". Built in 2018 by Turkish yard Turquoise Yachts the 77-meter vessel has design by H2 Yacht Design. The interior too is by H2 Yacht Design with room for guests in up to nine cabins -two VIPs, the owners, six other guests cabins. Two CATERPILLAR 3516C powerplants allow her to run close to 18-knots. Internal volume is 1,952 GT.

    She looked like she had a bit of damage and decided to cover it up with a matching wrapping material. I guess this was a temporary fix until they can get yard period.

    I'm from the Caribbean yes but no I am not from St. Maarten. I was referring to seeing her in the Bay on MT.

    Same here. I rolled my fenders through both sides of that thing more than once.

    I didn't see any actual pushing there. They were just standing by.

    I was just coming to say the same thing... absolutely no pushing from the tender/dinghy.

    seriously? Min 1:50 the guy hit Go with the dinghy...pushing her until min 1:58
    You guys should wear glasses before saying...absolutely or standing by...

    Why hit her if not for pushing her?

    He bumped the stern, but I didn't see any indication that he actually used any throttle... no prop wash behind the tender that I could see.

    No one is disputing that the tender did not bump the stern.. we can see that... but there was no wash so clearly no throttle was applied...

    Easy there, Maritna_ra. No need to be offended nor confrontational. My comment comes from a place of knowledge, with or without glasses. I've taken large yachts through that bridge hundreds of times, and understand the mechanics of it intimately.
    The inflatables (there was one on the port side doing the same thing) were standing by in case assistance was needed. They have to keep maneuvering in order to stay in position, and often touch the boat as a means of staying lined up. Truthfully, they may not have even been asked nor authorized by the captain to do so, but that's another thread all together.

    The amount of throttle that little tender would have to apply to make any noticeable difference would be significant, and would have been VERY obvious.

    "GO" has reached Gibraltar since her high-profile incident in SXM.
