First visit to France, first movie theater, starting song before the movie by Rod Steward, ' Sailing '. I will never forget.
Being a newbie deckboy on a cargo ship, we all worked hard. But that song represented everything to me about the sea/ocean/nature. A beautiful memory.
Pilou, was there a reason why you picked that song for your video?

Gorgeous boat, really!
I love your post, moving and inspiring, a nice homage to a very special moment of your life, a moment which lasts for minutes but the memory lives in forever.
I'm touched this happened in my country, La Rochelle is beautiful. Merci mon ami for sharing it with us here.

To answer your question :
The voice of the sea speaks to the soul. So, I was looking for a music which speaks to the sea, an emotional song in the rhythm of the ocean, with lyrics like the force of currents propelling us back from whence we came, to a world where we are not in control but are only reacting which I would fill up with the images and the perfumes of my trips on the sea.

Even if I'm a big fan of Rod Stewart, his version of "Sailing", as well The Sutherland Brothers original version, were too much "tonic" for my vessel which is not a Mangusta Yacht, she is a Grand Banks, a slow trawler to make long distance trips with greater freedom.

I found "Sailing" by Bruijs & Rosenberg, a "sweet sunshine" version that is more in tune with my feeling. Sorry Rod, I love you !

Yesterday afternoon moored at International Yacht Club of Antibes, Ice classed explorer yacht "Ulysses".

"Ulysses" is a 107 (351 ft) meter long range expedition yacht delivered March 2016 for New Zealand businessman Graeme Hart.

Built at Kevel shipyard in Norway, "Ulysses" arrived in Bremerhaven in August 2015, where she was finished at Stahlbau Nord, under supervision of Dörries Maritime Services.
Yacht Length: 107 m (351 ft)
Guests: 30 in 15 cabins
Crew: up to 42 in 15 cabins

One special feature of the yacht is her ability to carry a large amount of exploration craft and utilities, and none more impressive than her 21 metre tender (not showing on my pics). The tender was custom built by Teknicraft in New Zealand to meet the owner's deep-sea fishing and comfortable cruising requirements, propelled by 4 water jets driven by quad engines. Inside is accommodation for 7 guests in 5 cabins. The tender is stowed on Ulysses’s foredeck and served by an enormous crane fitted especially for this purpose.

Ulysses was built for extended long-range cruising even in the roughest of sea conditions, thanks to her robust construction by Kleven, specialising in commercial vessels.

Graeme Hart is actually building a second new expedition yachts at Kleven: a 116 meter yacht to be delivered in early 2017.

Just out of interest how much do you think it takes to run a boat like that. Given the old 10% rule that makes it an expensive project, especially as the boat ages and the asset depreciates, with a corresponding increase in upkeep costs.

I think with a boat like that you need a corresponding high end group of acquaintances/friends so as not to embarrass the staff.Nothing worse than being nouveau riche among a bunch of New Zealanders. I am afraid my friends would be a sad disappointment (mind you I am sure they would say the same about me)

Oh well, back to my varnishing.

My best guess is something in the $12 million range. A lot depends on the amount of use.

Even if Ulysses has been delivered on March 9th 2016 to her owner and she remained on a low use during this summer mostly cruising between Saint Tropez Cannes Antibes Nice Beaulieu Monaco, budget is more than an average $ 1 m per month on a full-year basis.

Looks great Pilou!

I knew it was not the Scottish flag, saw one recently on a boat here. Considered a modified Peugeot insignia.
Lion Rampant? A Loch Ness flag?

The Lion Rampant is the "Royal" flag of Scotland versus the white saltire cross on a blue field which is the "National" flag of Scotland.

From : Peugeot Logo | Design, History and Evolution

Shape and Colors of the Peugeot Logo

The Peugeot logo is one of the most widely recognized and enduring car logos in history. It has played a tremendous role in establishing Peugeot as one of the most prestigious and sought-after automobile brands in the world. The logo has undergone various modifications over the years.

The history of the iconic “lion” logo of Peugeot traces back to 1847, when the company used to manufacture saw blades and steel goods. According to branding experts, the lion portrays three major attributes of Peugeot saw blades; the strong teeth, the elastic blade, and the swift cut. The logo first appeared on the “Peugeot Bros” arrow in 1950, and was registered as a trademark in 1858.

In 1889, Peugeot produced its first machine, a tricycle, as a result of successful collaboration between Leon Serpollet and Armand Peugeot. It was the first machine to bear the company’s name. The later vehicles sported the words ‘Automobiles Peugeot’ on the radiators. From 1905 to 1915, the lion logo on an arrow was displayed on the “Lion Peugeot” cars manufactured by Peugeot Bros.

In 1933, a more simplified and dynamic lion was seen on bonnets of the Peugeot cars. The heraldic lion, which is also seen on the coat of arms of Franche-Comté (the birthplace of the Peugeot family) started appearing on the 203 in 1948. When the company was renamed Peugeot S.A. in 1965, a few repairs were made to its corporate logo. The lion’s head was placed inside a triangular shield. A few years later, the same head was enclosed in a square-shaped structure.

In 1976, the PSA Peugeot-Citroën holding company was born after the merger of Peugeot and Citroën. The group then acquired the Chrysler Europe in 1978. In an effort to strengthen its corporate image, Peugeot reverted back to the heraldic lion, with a much refined and sophisticated design called “Lion fil”.

The Peugeot logo was altered once again in 1998. This time, the company added the paws to showcase the power and balance of its corporate identity. The blue, intense eyes symbolized the forward-looking attitude of the company. The current logo of Peugeot, often referred to as the “Blue Brand”, was unveiled in 2002. It contains an elaborated black hue that portrays the lion’s shadow.

The proportionally shaped Peugeot logo is often considered as one of the most visually spectacular car logos ever created.

The current version of the Peugeot logo incorporates a custom typeface specifically designed for the company by French type designer and graphic artist Christophe Badani.

Lion Rampant?
"Lion Rampant", is depicted in profile standing, it's the flag used by the King of Scots.

"Lion Passant", is walking with the right fore paw raised and all others on the ground, it's the flag used by the King of the English.

The Lion is a common charge in heraldry. It traditionally symbolizes bravery, nobility, royalty, strength, stateliness, and valour, because historically it has been regarded as the king of beasts. Lion as a symbol of power, courage and strength was seen by Egyptians to represent wealth. They used the Lion on tribe banners at the time when Moses took the Israelites out of Egypt.

Therefore Lion refers to a Judeo Christian symbolism. The Lion of Judah stands in the coat of arms of the city of Jerusalem.

The Lion has speed, is alert and has power, this represents all that is majestic. Seen as the lord of the land, the Lion is compared to the Eagle which is supreme in the air. Lion is one of the favorite symbols of leadership & warriors. It is not only seen as a leader on earth but also in the spiritual realms. It's interesting that the Lion is considered by many ancient cultures to be a solar animal symbol. The fact that it is a nocturnal creature means that the Lion is a symbol of authority and command over subconscious thought (as night is an ancient symbol of the subconscious - or dream states).

In today’s world since the roar of the animal is strong, it is often associated with fearlessness. The Lion has captured imagination of human beings for many centuries as a sign of majesty. When the animal is carved on statues they are commonly found guarding palaces, bridges, temples and tombs. Its strength and courage have made it to be associated with power as well as grandeur. This animal knows how to get what he wants since they have the ability to knock off balance the life of the enemy or prey. Because of its noble character, strength and courage, the Lion’s totem & heraldy represent great power humans may have like self-control and balance of life which leads to own personal power.

Just like the Eagle, Lion has long been also included on some French coats of arms.

A little thread drift since the subject of Heraldry has come up.

Back in the sixties my Dad's best friend owned a restaurant called The English Pub on Key Biscayne. He used a symbol that looked a lot like the Royal Coat of Arms of the U.K.

This got him a cease and desist letter from an official of the British government. After an exchange of many letters escalating to legal threats on the part of the British government, my Dad's friend pointed out that the Royal Coat of Arms had a Unicorn on it and his had a Monocorn. What's the difference you and the British government ask?

It's simple, a unicorn horn has a clockwise spiral and a monocorn horn has a counter clockwise spiral.

At this point the Brits figured out he was having fun with them and gave up.
