  • Botes get bigger------

    But a crane launching always impresses me.

    To the point of the thread, yes, it's amazing to me people have that kind of money. As to my opinion, that top boat looks ugly, I do not like that European design

      LFBB - I agree. I still love the classic look of yachts. But I do love the color.

        That bottom picture is intriguing to me. The crane op can monitor the total weight, but doesn't really know how much is on each strap, and that is hopefully close to equally balanced-weight wise. That forward strap is close to mid ships. Engine room is probably between the straps with the fuel tank either middle keel or aft or a combo of both.

        The top bote, each crane knows how much its lifting.

        Pretty cool pics.

          Calling it European, I don't know.
          Some Navel Artichoke came up with the "Plum Bow" or "Whatevertheycallit" design, it is more efficient, "green", "in", "whatever" as opposed to traditional flare design.
          It's a different look and ride for sure. The bote goes through the wave rather than up and over. If you ever have a bow lift on you and slam down on the flare and shutter, sow down the bote, I don't suppose this happens with the "plum", sure looks ugly and I imagine it's a bit wetter and has less interior room.

            I'm looking at ride nor MPG if I got the money to buy that boat. I've seen that design on smaller boats coming out of inlets and that euro design is wet. I want dry and steady ride. I'd like to see a 100' cat.

              I think the point of interest on the new Blu one is that it is still under 500 Gt. But, its waterline and efficiency is beyond historical launches. Above 500GT a lot of things change.....

                  If you have to worry about the MPG you are looking at the wrong boat. Plus you are in the salon with a cocktail so a wet ride is not a concern.

                        I like this one, argueably the FASTEST way into the water! "Rot 'ro ... me thinks the straps let go ... !"

                        How'd you'd like to be that guy aboard? See where circled in red ...

                          My wife just said she'd probably never get on a boat again.
