    How about this superyacht of 77 meters length where we can separate the different parts ( in case of arguments on bord ) ....

        they replied on this,as she has never had the name of Smit Thames.

          I looked here to get some info on this former tug: http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/...hp?lid=1276392

          There appear to be many variations of the origin of this tug as there are writers.

          The pictures I have seen is of the Thames and here sister vessels, all with river names; Clyde, Mississippi, Orinoco etc., which was traditional names for Smit.

          It just shows that there are a lot of inaccuracy out there on the net. Luckily there are also a lot of "hawks" who pix up on such things and correct them. Unfortunately the hawks will never catch up with all the disinformation posted daily.

          The Caribische Zee had nothing to do with this. She was actually a US Salvage Tug USS BAR 2. Built during the Second World War and given to the Royal Navy under lend/lease, later transferred to the Australian Navy and sold to Canada in 1958. It was owned for only a short period (1962-63) by Smit before being sold again to South Africa: http://www.zeesleepvaart.com/caribischezee.htm



          Here she is seen towing one of the first LeTourneau Jack-up rigs, possibly the "Mr.Cap", which was the first offshore rig to drill in UK waters in the early 1960s.:



          Note the Helideck on top of the Bow Leg.

          She later became the "Chris Seager" for Reading & Bates and drilled off Brunei for many years. I was a regular visitor for rig moves from 1974 - 1978.

            yes ,no need for that,THIS was where it was al about.
            share something with others,and if it was not right or in doubt about it,
            each other helpt and discuss about it.
            something that is not much here anymore.

          Maybe a bit adventurous and strainious for most CVF members, but a nice toy for boys with $100 Mill. and time to spare: http://gcaptain.com/comanche-stretch...Captain.com%29

          A kick for sail enthusiasts??

            With so MANY suggestions to our own yacht, and still no desicion on which one to choose, I think it'll take some time before we find the perfect CV Yacht...

            It's like shopping light fixtures for your apartment: an impossible task!

            Anyway, to add more burden in the selection process:

              One thing is sure: we never seem to be able to decide on which ship/boat/yacht is going to be our CV club-boat:

                I guess it is hard to decide on a ship big enough for all of us, but with this option, it's big enough for me to hide away:

                This got to be the ultimate in anything I have ever seen - even without the gold!

                  Perhaps - what if this would be the perfect yacht for the FEMALE family members here at CVF?

                  What do you all think?

                  To much gold, too flashy or too girly?

                  What do you think, THIJS?

                    The exteriour do have some nice design elements, but the interiour??? What's is that, some kind of a palace?

                    The designers of these last two "yachts" obviously doesn't have much maritime knowledge.
                    The Supertanker yacht has bulbous bow and propeller nearly out of the water. Not very fuel efficient, nor good for comfort in a seaway.

                    The second one is obviously designed to sit permanently moored in Monaco.

                  Norwegian millionaire Gjelsten is selling his yacht for some 85 million NOK.... just in case we are still up for owning our own yacht....

                  Now, let the fighting begin over who's going to have the Captain's suite... (images in article, click on left or right side of the main picture to see the insides).

                    A yacht that has it all: http://edition.cnn.com/2015/06/08/sp...ter/index.html
                    Including a bridge that take off with the VIPs and leave the rest stranded.

                      A more realistic proposal for the CVY???: http://www.nettavisen.no/nyheter/inn...422807581.html
                      But of cause there may be problems finding a place to "park" it.
