    Some interesting pointers for us as we specify our yacht here ...

      We lost out on this one, but there will be one more coming off the blocks at Kleven: http://www.smp.no/naeringsliv/article11376267.ece
      (Maybe two)??

        Finally the perfect candidate for CVY has been found: http://www.vg.no/forbruker/bil-baat-...de/a/23501880/

        It'll need a little work to be able to serve, but nothing that a few millions wouldn't take care of.

          That is truly a nice classic, but I hope it is OK I don't sign on before the yacht is completed....

          But, that being said, even though the ship has an impressive part in history, I would believe she is totally gutted inside. That leaves only her shell as a historic vessel.

            I wouldn't recommend this one as the CVY. It may be slightly above budget: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/tr...tion-room.html

              Absolutely stunning craftsmanship and design! WAOW!

            Why buy when you can rent?? Here is a few options available on the market: http://www.vg.no/forbruker/bil-baat-...er/a/23572268/
            If all active CVF members pitch in it is a steal.

              I loved the classical "ALEXANDER" - so much style, grace and history in her shape and design!

              This has turned into a more general thread for yachts and pleasure crafts, so here are some seen in Aalesund these last few weeks.
              Starting with this Black Russian seen at Brunholmen on 06. June:


              And again on 15. June, but now with company:




              The same day this Troll was spotted at the guest marina in the inner harbour:




              Together with this one:

              May not qualify as a Yacht though, as it appears to be more of a professional research/survey vessel.

                One only for pleasure and the other for deep sea fishing charter:


                This one a traditional wooden boat for fishing and pleasure:


                A later version:

                  Here is one that could fit as the CVY though:


                  Details for you: https://www.yachtcharterfleet.com/lu...2/kamalaya.htm

                  Seen from Festoy Fergekai last Saturday:


                  Passing Sulesund:

                  With tender in tow.

                  Turning into Hjorundfjorden:

                    This could become an excellent Expedition Yacht: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/2016/09/01...ick_articles=1

                      Maybe we should just wait for this one?: http://nordic.businessinsider.com/10...e-beach-2016-8

                        Not a bad design at all - revolutionary and different.

                      If we are going to have a CVF yacht we may as well go the whole hog: http://www.vg.no/forbruker/bil-baat-...at/a/23821952/
                      Anything else would be a letdown.

                      Actually, looking at this total wast of millions of $$ is enough to drive you towards Communism.
                      What is the logic in one man spending this kind of money on his own pleasure?

                        I can't read norwegian , but if remembered wel.she can't go nowhere. With her masts she is to high to sail under a bridge somewhere, and by that not to sea.whoopsadaisy.

                          Don't believe everything you read or hear: http://www.boatinternational.com/yac...evealed--31729

                          If you use Google Translate you should be able to read the article in English, or maybe even in Dutch.

                          In any case here is much more detailed article in English: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ails-test.html

                          Apart from shouting out money, this "yacht" is just plain ugly to me. But who am I to criticise? Did the owner realise the masts were a bit too high for bridges? Should have built them collapsible?

                          He did, or at least the designers did. There is a passage for tall ships and rigs above the tunnel part of the "bridge" for this purpose, but with restricted depth of 8.0 m. in the Drogden Sound:
                          Vessels transiting the S part of The Sound and proceeding into the Baltic may pass through either Drogden or Flintrannan.
                          Drogden has a dredged depth of 8.0 m. and may be used by vessels with drafts up to 7.7m.
                          Flintrannan is swept to depth of 8.4m and may be used by vessels with drafts up to 7m.
                          The Oresund Link Bridge spanning Flintrannan has a vertical clearance of 55m.

                        This could be something for our Captain:
