Very interesting design. Too bad there's no pictures of the interior

Next kit from Dumas maybe ???

What nation'sflag was he flying in that video?

The bow reminds me of the ramming type from the 1800's.

Looks like the British Red duster, though I bet it is the Bahamas.

Interesting thing...

When she first left the yards, I remember seeing a couple of articles on her. Other than her incredible opulence, size and wave piercing design, one of the things that caught my attention was that she was said to have been built with the of best current generation anti-missile and torpedo defenses available, short of active CIWS, that a civilian could acquire; better it was rumored, in some cases, than some ships of the line.

Money may not buy happiness, but, in this case, it supposedly can give that warm, fuzzy feeling that only comes with knowing not even an exocet can interrupt an after-dinner cigar and brandy.

The owner probably needs that kind of protection.

Considering that the Soviet Union has only been extinct for less than two decades, he has amassed this much money in that short a time doing exactly WHAT---?

I was thinking the same thing---.

Kind of a cool movie, but you really had to be sharp on your literary skills to pick up on the characters---.

Can't tell what's on the main mast but it looks like a US flag on the stern.

Main mast flag is the Spanish flag, she was in Majorca I think it said. The defaced Red Ensign might be the British Virgin Islands flag, just guessing.

Her bow is designed to pierce through waves at high speed, not ride over them. It, along with "air cavities" is the hot thing in boat design.
