    started a topic Codename CVY (the C.V. Yacht)

    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?

    Not a bad idea.... I can easily imagine a re-purposed offshore vessel.... lots of deck space on the back for pools, sailboats, helicopters etc etc...

    With the crisis in the Offshore market there are literally 100's of Offshore vessels available for sale at a deep discount (75-85% of NB price)
    Here is a proposal for use of a modern PSV as Superyacht: http://www.superyachtnews.com/fleet/...re-vard-enough

    Any comments??

    This thread has somewhat become the thread for superyachts, and yachts not so super.... here is one that came to Trondheim this summer:

    Why not go for the ultra modern sail assisted super yacht?: http://yachtnews.altervista.org/blog...concept-norse/

    This could be something for our Captain:



    The gallant ship M/S Bitihorn, sailing the lake Bygdin (1.067 m.o.h.) in Jotunheimen, Norway, now safely beached for the winter. In the background the mountain Bitihorn, 1600 m.o.h.

    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.

    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?

    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

    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.

    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?

    Not a bad design at all - revolutionary and different.

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

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