    Name This Yacht

    Great to see Eilean being restored to such a high standard, I look forward to seeing her next year. Maybe Simon will want to go for a sail for old times?

    Give me the name and yard for this yacht:

    Next Head-scratcher:-

    Prince Charles in currently chartering M/Y Leander but what other Head of State had a yacht from the same Yard?

    Mv FALCON at Drapetsona, Piraeus on 23.9.2007. Originally the GDR-state yacht OSTSEELAND built in 1970. Known to have been used by the president of the GDR, Erich Honecker at times to receive state and party guests, among them Fidel Castro (Cuba) and Nicolae Ceausescu (Romania) have been mentioned. In 1990 sold to Sweden and renamed ANIARA. After German and Turkish ownerships is now, supervised by a manager in Piraeus, being refurbished for the present owners to be used in Dubai as FALCON.

    The photo of June 1998 shows ANIARA in the Peene Werft Wolgast GmbH for repair works before being transferred to the Turkish owners.

    Naval architect H.J. Gielow designed the two pictured Golden Era yachts for two prominent Detroiters. Give the yacht name and owner for each.

    Name the yacht whose hull was painted a color to match that of the owners corporate identity.
