    Presidential yacht of Finnland

    Sitting here watching norwegian television and the programme about the swedish royal family and what they did during 2009.
    Among the visits were a grand tour of a shipyard in Åbo and then we saw a glimpse of their transportation, the presidential yacht of Finnland "Gullranda VIII (Kultaranta VIII).
    I thought it looked like some creation from Star Wars-movies, so I got curious as to what this yacht looked like.
    Here she is, with a distinctly finish design...., the "Kultaranta VIII"




    She's 19,3 meters long, 5,7 meters wide and has 435 BHP devided on 4 engines. She can take 18 passengers and has a crew of only 2 people. Her hull is aluminium.

      Ehhh... modern.... different.... but beautiful? Not quite yet... give me a couple of hours and I'll probably not notice it in a bunch....

      4 engines.... some 400+bhp..... wonder what kind of speed that would make?

        That was the one thing the article I found didn't say anything about

        A wild guess: 33,5 knots

          Oh, Sterkoder... what are we going to do with you...

          Skimming the oceans at 33,5 (not point 4 or point 6, 33 point 5)... knots would probably be an awesome experience in that thing (as in thingy).
