    Large luxury yachts are regularly seen I Aalesund. It is seldom if ever know who the VIP guests onboard are, or in many cases, who's arriving for a cruise on the fjords.
    Here is some I have spotted the last few weeks. First a very large and impressive sail yacht:


    The Gene Machine spent a couple of days waiting:


    The crew took the change for a cruise of their own with the tender:


    The Pakarang view:


    Port bow view:

    When the BØKFJORD was about the be launched some years ago, I almost applied for one of the positions on board.... needless to say, I remained with the ferries!

    Great spot!

    As you may have noticed from my past comments: I love images of ships crew of all ranks and positions. Perhaps because I relate to their work so much?

    That is a really brilliant shot with that misty fog!

    A shot you just need to be there to get - and can't plan for!

    WAOW!

    Tommi's 4501 is an exceptional image in that the ship and the building behind appears to have the exactly same shade of paint! Almost too good of a match actually! Well done getting that photo!

    The Kvitnos image is superb too. Actually today, I saw "Kvitnos" on AIS as we crossed the fjord at work. But it wasn't this one, it was a sailboat with the same name!

    A few buckets of paint left over after they'd done the building?

    Just looked at Talitha again. Owned by the Getty family according to http://www.superyachtworld.com/yacht...-talitha-11150

    Totally different designs but I think that both the TALITHA and the Gene Machine are two exceptional looking vessels. Would be hard - at least for me - to pick which one to go on a trip with, if I ever was asked, thank you very much!

    We have had some VERY nice large yachts visiting Aalesund lately.
    Here is one of them:










    Even the capstans are made from stainless steel:


    And the fair leads is "gold plated":


    Last upgrade was in 1993:
