        It must be 1,5 to 2 knots worth of speed left in that hull, so after seeing your last picture here, I hope they had sufficient room to turn before that bridge...
        Other than that, I wonder why they havent mounted a rig rope from the top of the front mast to the bow spear, just for the sight of everything.
        And I also wonder where all those fenders are stored when not in use. They seem to be too many and too big to have around for the high price paying passengers to stumble over anywhere on those decks which seem open to passengers over all... Just wondering you know

        Many don't like the looks of her, her "new" design as opposed to the original, but I don't understand that. I think she's a beauty, and as always, your images are superb, J-O!!!!

              This was a tragic end to this beautiful yacht that had been many times in Tromsø in recent years and many other places along the coast of Norway.

                OHHHHH....NOOOOOOO!

                That is really to sad to see, the beautiful Grace in pieces and crushed along the shores!

                I loved this ship - she was a true gemstone. Very, very, very sad to see her end the career in this way.
