    Aviva I was the Feadship Aviva that caught fire prior to transformation to the Attessa III.

    Aviva II is the Aviva II after selling the oceAnco Alfa Four and being renamed that Aviva (but the second one)

    Aviva III would be the new axebow yacht from Abeking & Rasumssen.
    Hope that helps K1W1.

    And the new Aviva from A&R is not called Aviva III as in on her name plate but I imagine just a way of distinguishing between the others out there.

    Can you rephrase your question if you are refering to me because I do not understand what you mean?

    It wasn't aimed at your personally Yachtluver, just an observation...

    A couple of the recent yachts have gray hulls. A couple of years ago it seemed like everyone was going for some shade or another of dark blue. At the time SKAT was the only gray prominent gray hulled yacht around (and superstructure on her case) but now there's quite a few more.

    I just love the Ronin..her design is wonderful. Angular, militaristic, fast and just beautiful. Skat very militaristic and angular but bulkier compared to the Ronin. I wish that they would design more yachts along the lines of her.

    Does any one have any info for this vessel?

    I photographed her as she rounded off Europa Point in Gibraltar heading for the Med on the 18th. Her name is TILIKUM.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    thanks,
    Daniel

    PLAN B is a former Australian Navy hydrographic vessel built in 1973 At Williamstown Naval yard as HMAS FLINDERS and decommissioned in 1998 following a successful career. She was purchased by a New Zealand couple who had her completely rebuilt a few years ago into a luxury yacht in New Zealand over a 2 year period and named FLINDERS. Around 2006 she was sold and named PLAN B. The new owner had her refit at the Atlantic Drydock, Jacksonville as an expedition yacht.
