    The only other little Sunseeker I can think of is the Outlaw 14 that was tender to the Predator 63

    Midsummer was the name of a yacht that subsequently caught fire on Christmas Eve in Cannes when the yacht tied next to her also had a fire aboard.

    Yes, almost right. Midsummer was a 40 m charteryacht that caught fire in the old port of Cannes on Christmas Eve 1997. The firefighters were spraying so much water that she eventually sank, after the heat of over 650°C had melted her aluminium superstructure down. Next to her, the Heesen yacht Honey Money got her top deck damaged during the fire.

    You are next!

    Back to a Hatteras question

    What were the beginning and end dates of production, month and year, for the Hatteras 53' Classic Motor Yacht?

    Don´t take this personal but many questions lately has been too sophisticated. May I quote the second post in this long thread and hope we can continue with more trivia related questions so more people get a fair chance to answer...?

    OK, so you took it personal anyway. Sorry about that, but don´t you agree that questions that absolutely nobody can answer without being lucky to find the answer in a book or on the net, is a little too far from the trivia idea?

    Maybe nobody noticed but Carl was also trying to lead us back to the original idea last week;
