Sorry for more than one entry. "Edit" functions seem confused today... at least from what I have done for years! - Art

Wish one of the two videos showing internal troubles of ship severe listing and water gushing over occupant floors and decks could have shown actual wave conditions in the sea. Amount of list accounted for in videos, especially the one with gushing water flowing over internal floor and outside decks, makes me wonder how top heavy that ship may be.

Just as a guestimate, unless the captain was running parallel with the waves and therefore fighting beam seas, there must have had to been 30' to 40' cresting swells. Seems that size ship should be able to run on forward quarter beam into waves and reduce circumstances shown in videos. Or, is that floating city simply too top heavy??

BTW - With today's high tech weather predictions... what was that captain/boat doing in that weather condition anyway?? Maybe ordered to by corporate heads sucking on bourbon and water by the fireplace in their corporate lounge... while maximizing corporate profits. Geeeezzzzz!!!!

Once all that top hamper starts flopping over as in rolling it takes a lot of force to stop the roll not to mention bringing her back upright.

I actually like the look of her more than most. I like the slightly raked back stem. A bit like some Dutch boats. She's just as high as most cruise ships but her topsides are much lower. Kinda like the old warships 100+ years ago.

Pilou,
Did you photograph that and choose your vantage point well
or photoshop. My guess is you just saw it and like a good photographer snapped it.

I see something I did'nt see before. Those two ships in post 45 are'nt the same ship. Looking closely at the sheer fwd reveals a slot in the top of the topsides on the lower boat and it's not there on the upper boat pic. I was puzzled because looking at the "comm'in at you" shot (the upper one) it looks for all world like a raked bow boat .... and it is.

Clever shot!
If such a vessel really existed, I am sure there are plenty of people who would risk their lives by buying a ticket.

Bows are as different as a GB and an IG. Not the same ship. There are other differences. Maybe just the same shipping line.

I can't get picture to copy onto post. Believe me... seeing the 24 photos of this beautiful classic/antique yacht is worth it!!

Unfortunately the add will disappear in a few days from Craigslist. If anyone knows how to get photos to copy onto this thread that would be great!

I think I got them saved in a folder on my laptop. Lets see if I can post a few.
I've also ask for some pics of the engine spaces.

Send them an email or call to request ER photos Bet the sales staff was not too bright about what photo means what to experienced boaters. They have them I'm pretty sure.

Anyway... at $800K and being what she is... person who gets hot and bothered to actually purchase is probably not the one who really cares about the drive line. That will be left up to the person's assistants. CL ad is all about selling the sizzle to someone who could care less about cost or the mechanics of the boat. Just imagine the annual cost to keep that classic/antique baby in its same top condition and have a captain ready to pilot at drop of a hat.... $200K, $300K all inclusive??

Eric,
No Photoshop.

Both ships post #3953 belong to AIDA cruises fleet, an American/British owned German cruise line based in Rostock, Germany.
