    Here is the lift boat "Brave Tern" doing jacking trials on her newly extended legs at a shipyard in Rotterdam: http://gcaptain.com/watch-brave-tern-full-height-test/

    She is used to install structures at Offshore Windfarm around Europe.

        Built-in weapons or pure navy ships?

        LOL

        That was a silly attempt at being humorous... Naturally taking over a shipyard, they'll be building ships to specs by shipping companies.

            This will be a set of spectacular vessels if they're anywhere close to the renderings we have seen so far.

              It may help that the same owners are on both side of the table??

                VARD has got a contract for two more cruise ships for Pontan:
                https://sysla.no/maritim/vard-skal-b...usskip-ponant/

                Update:
                Peephole
                Ponant has incorporated what is referred to as the world's first "Blue Eye" - an underwater lounge that will provide a unique experience of life in the ocean. With the help of sensors, sound and lighting, passengers are able to keep track of life below the water surface through two peep holes. This is probably the first time installing such a ship on board a cruise ship. "The glasses are comparable to those at the Atlantic Park, but are reinforced so that they, for example, can withstand a floating conteiner hit the glass at sea," explains Klokk.
                This is what it'll look like:
                .
