An absolute beast! I’m told that this particular Russian ship is outfitted a lot better than most, with comfy staterooms and things you’d normally only find on western vessels.
Top 1000 Boat Pictures
Unfortunately I only got a photo of the bridge on the enclosed bridge model – the right-most of the three. View post on imgur.com There’s new car smell, new plane smell, new house smell – but they all pale in comparison to new yacht
It’s a [Bermudan ensign](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Bermuda), not to be confused with the very similar [Cayman ensign](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Civil_Ensign_of_the_Cayman_Islands.svg). Edit: and it’s owned by [this guy](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrey_Melnichenko).
The vessel made this journey in 1971, and was launched in 1972. Lakers are built in all sorts of different ways, with most being built on the lakes and especially Frasier shipyard in Duluth. To my knowledge the Cort was the only laker built
Winter layup usually begins around January 15 when the Soo Locks close for winter maintenance and ends March 20th when the locks reopen. These thousand footers generally haul iron ore (and some coal) from the western shore of lake superior and the only way
Actually, it has a pretty decent cockpit, its just coverd because of the angle. And the sunbathing area in the front is decent, it even has cupholders. But ya, theese sport/express cruisers are mostly to enjoy the huge, air conditioned area.
A lot was lost and a lot was salvaged. This photo predates the fire, I found the ensemble very nice, the autumnal shades give this picture a brilliant atmosphere. I admire the rebuild of the ship, it looks glorious with the glass waves but
As it says on the side of the boat it’s a shepherd 🙂 It’s the Canadian equivalent of a Riva or Chriscraft. Probably from the late 50’s or 60’s. If it’s in good shape and the wood isnt’t rotten it’s probably worth quite a
I want to drive that boat up my… boat. My last rig was a 1947 woodie. Can’t beat the craftsmanship and joy IF you can enjoy the constant bright work.
Well, given its leeward position, tacking makes a lot of sense but I’ not convinced about the roll tack, if only because the people seem to be laying on deck (looks more like they are trying to reduce wind drag) and they would have
I see what you’re saying. I would suggest that she’s able to command a premium in the chartering market over other hull designs as she is able to more reliably keep to schedule. I’m a shipbroker, and given how things are around Europe weather-wise
The photoset was taken off the coast of Bali in order to mark the 10th anniversary of the Queen Mary 2. Here’s the link to [the set](http://www.sailingscuttlebutt.com/2015/04/08/photos-an-incredible-juxtaposition/).
Damn, you found me out, I’m really a ferry-spotter. I started out with tugs and pilot vessels, but it just wasn’t enough, before I knew it I was onto coasters and dredgers. I thought I could control it, just the occasional schooner, but before
Yeah i figured that out when i zoomed in. Adding to the illusion was the orange suits of the crew which kinda looked like you could see through the sub skeletons to some orange paint on the other side of the ship.
[Here’s a story from Business Insider, the owner is not a sheikh or an oil tycoon, but Kirsty Bertarelli – a singer and Miss UK](http://www.businessinsider.com/kirsty-bertarelli-yacht-2012-3) (but her husband is a pharmaceutical tycoon!)
I’m watching a documentary on the History channel about this right now. What a crowd of ‘conservationist’ idiots. Ran over a fishing boat near Guatemala, killing a fisherman, and after being cleared by the Guatemalan gov’t (dunno how) continued the race! They should have
He’s getting downvoted because he’s making a generalized statement about cruise ship design based on one ship, as if there is some master design for them. I agree that the QotS is a bit….out there, but it’s by no means the ugliest thing to
Let’s can the harsh language. The new ones are, but have you seen any built before the 1,000 footers? They’re *beautiful*. The Edward L. Ryerson is [art](http://imgur.com/a/bSHrs), the Alpena has the lines of an [ocean liner](http://imgur.com/a/6wC6I), the Arthur M. Anderson is among the most
You’re very welcome. Please don’t have problems with strikes or jack up your prices and I won’t be forced to take my business down south. I’m actually surprised that despite the higher taxes and regulations in NY that it’s still the cheapest option outside
That’s the old Mystic Miss Geico… One of the turbines caught fire and she burnt to the water line. The new one runs 1650 Mercs and is a 43 Victory I believe.
I grew up watching this boat (among many others) throughout the summer at my grandparent’s cabin, at the mouth of the St. Mary’s River. I love seeing these boats, whether from a few miles away or from the observation platforms near the locks in
The ship’s electrical and mechanical systems would need to be completed in order to properly ballast and stabilize the hull for a long ocean-crossing voyage. The upper-structure doesn’t appear to be in place yet, so those systems aren’t complete. Also, tugs are very expensive,
I haven’t actually tipped my H16 yet. I think the water I go to is shallow and I’m afraid of letting the mast hit the bottom. I really should get one of though mast floats. when there has been a lot of wind, I’ve
Also, something of significance is in the back left of center there is a large white motor yacht named [Rising Sun](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rising_Sun_(yacht) which is the 11th largest private yacht in the world.
