Yacht = MY WAY
Yard = Benetti
Tender = Leopard
Tender yard = ???
Yacht is right.
Yard is right.
Tender's name is wrong! Try again. A clue: The tender's yard is dutch.
Tender = True Love (Class 3 - IMS Racer)
right about the name.
So....what's the yard of the tender? A very well-known dutch yard.
Just trying: Herbert Dahm = Jongert
Yard could be Jongert!?
Yes. You have answered all questions right. The turn goes to you
Built in Holland
Correct, Kalmeran! Your turn.
But there's even a second answer to the same question.
Built in Holland
But the question is : how many horsepower had the two other engines??
Maybe we're looking for Detroit Eagle's wing engines?
There MTU's 2 x 3650HP
If you promise me not to ask a question about a dutch built, in 2004 launched gas turbine powered yacht, it is your turn
OK, volgende vraag, Kalmeran!
Her central engine seized during sea-trials?
Gimme the lot!
Hm.....I am not sure if I understand your question right, TRY...please rephrase......alvast bedankt!
een beetje duidelijker!
Sorry for being so confusing.
A famous yacht, built in a well known European yard, blew her central propulsion engine during her sea-trials.
Give name, yard, engine manufacturer.
Is this clear?
Uitstekend ! Excellent : I start thinking now....
Is it Ecstasea, by Feadship (i.e. Royal Van lent) with her GE turbine ??
Just a guess, because I really don't know...
Negative sir, not ecstasea sorry...
My apologies for not knowing the answer to the last question and also for having to disappear without being able to wait for the correct answer to my question (well done!) and my apologies to anyone who thought I was trying to be offensive - many of our dearest friends are motor yacht owners and refer to themselves as 'stinkpot captains' so it hadn't occurred to me that anyone might think I was being unkind.
In case you need another question... and, actually, we don't know the answer to this one, so it is a quest for knowledge of a trivial nature...
When and how did 'larboard' and 'starboard' become 'port' and 'starboard'?
No worries! I've edited your last post (off subject). Let's continue the momentum....
You've posed another good question... "the origins of larboard!"
