    Codename CVY (the C.V. Yacht)

    Didn't know where to put this, so here is another thread.
    Would this suite as the CV Yacht?







    Don't know what to say about this bow configuration. Could it be a phallus symbol?


    Some fancy decoration with no practical usefulness?


    And the initials are right, only in wrong order.


    This yacht visited Geiranger and Aalesund a few days ago, with the Owner and his body guards on board. Said to have cost abt. USD 90 Mill. to build. Delivered from the yard in Holland earlier this year.

    Would that do as a run-about for the CV members?

    That one could possibly be the right one, though, not sure about the hull color...

    I have always imagined "our yacht" to be having a Norway blue hull.... but that could be easily fixed with a few spray-paint guns.

      I think we discussed this with some examples in the old forum "a ship for Jan-Olav", but i could not find it.

      In my opinion, the solution is definetly "Kong Olav"!

      I would join the trips and refurbishment as often as i could. Maybe Sterkoder shipsyard would be the right place to do this?

          I could "slum it" for a few weeks on a yacht like that.

                If the yacht on the images above is the common whish for an imaginary CV vessel, so be it. But it will be without me.....
                I don't fancy straight forward ugly floating vessels, you know....

                  If we should have a modern yacht for our CV members, and since we mostly love the more elegant lines, this could perhaps be a better choice for us?

                  Currently sailing as the Wedge 2, and commanded by Captain R. Maalen.

                    Would the captain come with the ship????

                    If so, whip out that checkbook, ADMIRAL Storli--we've found her!!!!

                    (and mini-Maalen can be the boss of Maalen!!)

                      Ok...., that "Wedge 2" is as far as I personally can go in that direction. You know, such yachts are in lack of nice lines, but of course, "Wedge 2" looks a little bit better than that plastic steam-iron further up here....

                      "Sequoia" (the former U.S. presidential yacht) for instance, is a medium nice creation...

                        The above mentioned Master, took this fantastic looking vessel into Portofino on Monday, and if you are quick, you can still see her on the Portofino webcam: the largest yacht ever to dock in Portofino!

                            Take look on Chritina O too.

                            I was offered a job on board SS Delphine earlier this year, but since my medical was having some hick up's I couldn't run for it...

                            Great looking yacht indeed.

                              These shots really show her true size! The vessel along her starboard side in the last photo looks big enough, but the 'Wedge 2' dwarfs her! And just compare her with the size of the buildings!
                              Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.
