    Thought you would like to see some photos of UTOPIA which arrived in Lyford Cay today, probably the biggest boat ever to be in the marina. Does anyone know whether or not the boat has been sold and how much the asking price was?

    Seems like it might be a little top heavy from some of the pictures that I have seen.

    The hull is steel but the rest is aluminum. I imagine that she must catch the wind though.

    On Sunday morning, February 19th, Utopia was docked at the 17th Street Marriott. I took these pictures when I was returning from an offshore rendezvous with Rising Sun.

    Two lovelies in less than two hours. Lucky to live near Lauderdale! :cool:

    I remeber reading somwhere on the forums that the yard she was built at my be beam restricted, (like most of the dutch yards). Hence they had no more room to grow in that direction.

    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong

    Height/Beam Ratio-- Athena


    I read that during the build of Athena (mega sailing yacht of silicon valley entrpreneur Jim Clark built by Royal Huisman and featured on YF) Jim Clark noticed during the build that the superstructure looked too high for the boat (at least aesthetically), so he had them stretch the length during the build for better proportion -- hey, a little push here, a pull there, and voila ....

    Hi Neil,

    Thanks for the beautiful pics. But if you could please keep them sized to no larger than 640 pixels wide that would be great. :)

    UTOPIA is at Makkum right now. At Feadship XL, De Vries - Makkum. Saw her there last Sunday next to SIRAN.

    She'll look at little bit different after this visit ;)
