New Tim Heywood 72m - Update

Quote, originally posted by Andy Lindy »
About the superyacht under construction at Alstom Marine Chantiers de l'Atlantique, it's said to be 235 feet, design by the team Chaurand/Heywood/Disdale, name TBA, launch Summer of 2005

There is some information also at:

But the picture is too small unfortunately.

Interesting feature: This yacht will have pods propulsion - Mermaid pods are a speciality of Alstom developed in cooperation with Rolls-Royce. They were used also for QM2. This means that the new yacht will have diesel/electric propulsion.

Andy, you may have already seen this but here is a new link to the current info. on this yacht.

According to postings by Maarten & Yachtspotter on another website, her name may be "Kogo" and due for September delivery.

Alstom would be a logical choice for anyone interested in pod propulsion. Personally after reading about the issues Limitless had with advanced propulsion systems I think I would have stayed with standard diesel propulsion and had her built at Lurssen.

If your in a far flung corner of the world and the pods malfunction you've got a big problem. You may end up having to haul out the yacht, and not just any yard would do. With diesels if you have a problem with your Caterpillar, MTU, or W
