    Conversion from Navy ship to luxury yacht.


    >>

    Pierre Jean Design will convert a former navy ship into a ultra luxurious yacht. They have previously done a lot of sailboats, helicopters and private aircrafts.

    It's a frigate of the SWIFT 141-class which will be converted into a yacht housing 60 guests and 56 crew. The speed will clock in around 26 knots once completed and the yacht will be among the world's largest.
    A fantastic idea, very impressive end product, BUT, i agree with Seagull, the question must be asked - "WHY????". Surely it must be a lot cheaper to build it from scratch? I guess it's the sheer fun of undertaking such a project, the whole conversion process is something i would greatly love to see in detail. I would find it fascinating!
    Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.

      A couple of great contestants to a future CV Yacht?

      Mike Kajan Yacht Design
      Is Good Design a Genetic Gift?

      Like anyone with a passion, Mike Kajan's interest in yacht design has evolved from his experience on the water, manifesting itself in some extraordinary yacht design concepts, with an unusual twist... Mike isn't a yacht designer. He's a banker! In his free time, he uses Freehand to digitally sketch his imagination, which leaves us wondering... is fine design a genetic predisposition or is it the evolution of an interest?

      Off course, we would need a support vessel as well for our yacht:

      New Contract: Amels 67-meter Sea Axe Support Vessel

      The successful sale of the first SEA AXE 6711 shows that superyacht owners are looking for higher quality, high-speed support ships.

        It's already in blue - our color: this could be a great yacht for CVF recreational cruises..... and now, also discounted price wise:

          At 102 feet long your (Pakarang) license should certainly be good enough to captain her. I'll get out my paint and brush to put the CV logo on the bow.

            Now, dear CVF family, if we "borrow" this new yacht and paint her Norway-blue, wouldn't that be a nice CV yacht for our family cruise?

              Sick. Absolutely sick!
              (to use modern hip parlance).

              To use another phrase....That is one bad-ass boat!

              I love the tender--so cute! (yes, one can use the adjective "cute" with a tender....)

              Please note I love this yacht even though it does not contain one DROP of pink ANYWHERE!!!!!!!

                If we do successfully manage to capture this vessel and make her our own, I can promise you that you will get the pink-est room at any ocean going vessel. EVER.

                  I must remark here, that the flat screens are not perfectly mounted on the wall. They are not all in the same level. I would send her back to the shipyard.

                    Hahahaha.... a guarantee claim, maybe we can have them adjusted once we bring her home to Trondheim?

                      Thank you, my dear!

                      ps..that "capture this vessel" sounded quite pirate-y.................

                        Who's talking of pirates??? OK, I'm in on this. And I'll be in charge of the tender, I did at one time captain the one-person dinghy ferrying between the mainland and the island garden down on the Thames.
                        Oh, and I'll have the jade cabin. Anything jade is mine. OK?

                          Jade and pink rooms have been reserved.... I'll have the master suite anyway...

                          Now, the problem is how are we going to get enough revenue on this thingy to be able buying fuel?

                            We can sell my no.1 laptop, vintage 1998 which spends its time moaning that it can't find the operating system, and at a pinch - if we are in desperate need - no. 2 laptop which is well-behaved. No. 3 laptop in use - sorry. Proceeds should set us up for the first few 1000 miles (or whatever that is in Km.!)

                                But I'm a landlubber. You can't expect me to know everything nautical, especially when I know hardly anything. Anyway, I'm a pirate's moll, don't need to know that.
