    No i can see the name of the yacht on the slide and on the sideboards but I was wondering about the builder. Looks like a Trinity but still doesn't.

    Nope, I dont think its a trinity... its listed on the web with Builder: Custom....

    http://www.oceanindependence.com/index.php/yacht-charter/yacht/just-enough
    check the listing (I hope it doesnt break any rules), the description talks about the builder but doesnt name it.... my guess its a no-name yard in some third-world country... Even like that, I prefer to know the name... looks like a pretty boat nonetheless...

    SY Times lists Builder: Unknown... but an interesting note: "Comment: The hull was originally build in 1989 by Broward."

    source: http://www.***************.com/yachts/details/4042 edit: i guess this ones a violation...sorry bout that...

    Lots of toys exist for today's superyacht but have you seen a custom-built inflatable wall for your guests to utilize on charter or for the adventurous owner and his/her family? Not sure if this is a representation of the real wall on the side of what appears to be "Carpe Diem" or if it's an image superimposed but it gives you an idea. It's made by Eco Yacht Toys.

    Dave,

    Just spent the entire morning with Precision Aerial Filmworks discussing exactly the same idea you posted in that video. Here's PAF's website...

    Precision Aerial Filmworks

    I also saw a demo of the down-sized version of the same exact equipment, but on a less expensive, civilian scale this morning using a Go-Pro. This quad is from DJI innovations and it's under $750. Unbelievable technology and it works!

    In contrast, PAF uses the industrial version from DJI. It is nearly $10,000 for a six-rotor machine with a fully articulated gimble housing for a camera. The only drawback is the limited selection of cameras that will work with this ship because the software must interface with the camera to have control over the shutter release, zoom, etc.

    A mate here has just spent $000's on a commercial one. He's going to use it for land and coastal surveys. So much cheaper and easier than chartering a helicopter or plane.

    The largest curved inflatable yacht slide has been completed for a 70-meter superyacht.

    I am no advocate for "laws" or "rules".
    However:
    There should be a law against this sort of visual and spiritual pollution on the water!

    Perhaps the yacht that the pair of inflatable slides will serve has black on her so it would match maybe? I still not sure which yacht they are for, whether one that is in-build or an existing 70-meter in service.

    The hovercraft is super-cool, but may be dangerous, too, as a toy in a yacht. Obviously the guy in the video masters it, but just think of all those reckless youngsters with no experience. Its a toy for trained specialists.

    The slide is beyond my comprehension. Is like an enormous glorification of something very simple and not that entertaining. Even small kids just jump 3 or 4 times, and it probably takes 2 hours to inflate that thing (never mind deflate the monster).

    Now if Amazon decided to use drones like that it could be cool. (Otherwise drones are for slingshot practice)
