I really didn't know what to expect when I clicked on this thread, but holy crap! Those are some buttugly boats!

 

I'm sorry, I don't care if these boats can break every record in existence or were considered everything I should like in boats - this is truly gutter porn!

 

And, if these examples would have represented the whole of boats and sailing when I was growing up, I think I would moved farther inland a took up hiking, exclusively.

Its the tender for the 394' yacht "A". Another Russians toy.

A was in town for the night this week, anchored off sausalto

We saw A in Ketchican two weeks back. It sure looked weird among the local vessels and cruise ships.

We took the self drive zodiac tour and had a fairly close look at A, didn't get too close as we didn't want to look down the buisness end of an AK47!

 

I can thoroughly recomend the self drive zodiac guided tour by Back Country tours.

 

Cheers,

The tender came into the marina as well and promptly turned around and left after seeing a couple hundred soggy sailors.

Stunning in its degree of ugliness. I have to say I am just not impressed with Philip Starck. I know he's supposed to be the shit, but it seems to me that he really just appeals to eurotrash. I unfortunately had to attend a wedding this last labor day weekend in fucking Times Square, and we were put up in a Philip Starck designed hotel that I couldn't wait to get out of. Again, nothing but euro trash and Ohioans taking in what they perceive to be sophistication, when it was really just awful trash. That tender is just as awful, and so is A. I'm sure the boat makes for quite the party platform, but it's just ridiculous and gaudy.

I like it. Very clean with a dreadnought bow for wave piercing. Much nicer than the usual multi storey condos for Euro Trash. This could become part of the Baltic Fleet for Putin with just a paint job. Nice.

Regarding the OP, it looks like the bastard child of a stainless steel, gas grill and a deranged CNC mold making machine.

Design by high-fashion designer Philippe Starck, also external designer of this tender.

Some similarities in this tender with the design of Steve Jobs M.Y also by Starck's

The first tender is ugly for a boat but impressive for its job. The rib is flat hot. And the big boat is just stunningly beautiful. A+ for A!

Well the tender is a boat designed for maximum deck space for bikini or less clad ladies.

 

No place to siall they can do is lie down.

Sailed by it today, outside Oakland, SE of TI. Kinda cool in a 'James Bond villain' sort of way. Odd job tender and all.

Well, one thing is for sure. It is well travelled. Auckland last winter for a paint job, Maui 4 weeks ago, Ketchikan 2 weeks ago, Bellingham a week ago, now SF Bay.

 

I thought I'd read several years ago that the windows are bullet proof glass.

We sailed past A yesterday on a day cruise out of Alameda round the Bay.

 

Personally, I like it. But YMMV. Certainly the design is thoroughly polarizing, which I think is highly desirable. Many love it. Many hate it. But there are very few fence sitters. That's good, IMHO.

 

$325,000,000.00 of construction cost went about 80% to salaries, as does most of the $2,400,000.00 a month to keep it going. Moving the money around keeps a load of sailing industry people in bread, beer and bacon.

Even though it is the tender for the Mega yacht A, it would make a great European canal boat.

Reminds me of something more out of a Dirk Pit Novel rather than 007, but the 007 song fits. I can just imagine the moon pool and all the goodies it holds.

Saw the big boat in Nawiliwili Harbor a couple of days before the first hurricane of August went by. Word was they dropped the oligarch off to be picked up by his jet. Then we departed on the heels of Hurricane Julio in a 35' cat bound for Newport, Oregon. Saw the big boat again when we were two days off the Oregon coast.

That's what I was wondering - most of 2 1/2 mil a month to staff it? Is Donald Trump the skipper? The way it seems to be moved around I'd say that went to fuel, not staffing costs.

 

Most of 2 mil a YEAR, maybe, if the criminal is exceptionally generous, which is unlikely - he has a fleet of boats that size to support after all.

Saw it cruising around this weekend on the Bay. It kinda has a casual old world look to it from some angles, with bimini flapping in the breeze sayin' "Я просто не заботятся"

A was parked outside my house in Auckland for a few months as they sorted out the paint issue...

And a couple of months before that it was moored next to us in French Polynesia and the tender escorted by two ribs, was escorting two canoeists who looked like they were trying to get away from all their escorts..
