A new design for what may become the world's largest yacht has appeared. Under its project name, 'Col,' its owner and designer expect it to be constructed under the supervision of Lurssen, although no confirmation has been made at current. When completed, the 170 meter yacht is expected to have a max cruise speed of a cool 40 knots! Hopefully more information will be available for release soon! Expect her to hit the water in the 3rd quarter of 2008. [pictures coming soon]
To showcase its Prestige line of motoryachts and express cruisers, French boatbuilder Jeanneau welcomes select guests to its impressive factory in Les Herbiers in western France. Prospective boat buyers, dealers, and a few lucky journalists got a glimpse of the entire boatbuilding process from the design and engineering studios to the yard where the boats are loaded for truck delivery. Oh and there was a really nice lunch with a little champagne as well!
