Following on from Andrei Melnichenko's "A" launched earlier this year, might CII herald a rush by prospective yacht owners to snap up the remaining 24 letters of the alphabet?
Klaus has just sent in shots of Abeking & Rasmussen's latest launch getting her finishing touches in Lemwerder.
Although a sister to Eminence, the exterior styling seems less curvy, with the characteristic Reymond Langton "darts" or "arrowheads" almost absent.
There is an interesting transparent enclosure on the sun deck in front of the mast - possibly a lift (elevator)?
Update: April 2009 - Superb new photo of C2 taken during the St Barths season, by Bob.
