The Qatari yacht formerly known as Project Crystal was launched in April 2010. Now named Katara, she has now made her first ocean crossing, visiting the Caribbean and southern Europe.

Here at monacoeye we’ve received several nice photos. Above from Bob Trusty in Barbados, (with a near identical one from Ron Pearson, perhaps from the same cruise ship?) And below, a nice one of the lights at sunset from Brian Watson. A few more to follow …

Formerly: (Project Scout)
Length: 247 ft • 75 m
Year: 2009
Builder: Lürssen • # 13651
Design: Espen Øino International
Interior: Pauline Nunns Associates

Northern Star the 75m explorer from Lürssen, built under the project name Scout, was launched in 2009 and recently arrived in Monaco.

She is so similar in design terms to the previous incarnation of Northern Star that we mistook her for Polar Star!

The resplendent paint work should have given the game away…

5 May 2008: Neill sent in the top photo of Silver behind the Loews this evening. Good looking yacht !

The aluminium-hulled Silver is the latest megayacht to be built in Western Australia. She is the world's largest aluminium yacht . Her design includes a low profile for improved speed and fuel efficiency and a shallow draft, which provides greater coastal access and a highly responsive helm. She is destined for the charter market and will accommodate 18 guests.

Hanseatic Marine are currently building another 73 m sistership, MY Fangio, for delivery in 2009, and are working on a 90 m concept with Oeino.

The helicopter lands easily on either end of the 126 m yacht. Octopus also travels with a bright yellow submarine.

Pari

Pari on the rocks
The yacht pari runas agound by Carlie Chpalin's villa

Yacht name: Pari
Length: 130 ft • 39 m
Year: 1989
Builder: Alucraft • Dell'Argentario
Design: Vicenzo Ruggiero • Refit: Espen Øino

Photos: monacoeye • St Jean Cap Ferrat • 2 June 2008

20 June 2009: Activity around Pari. A containment barrier has been placed around her and hull inspections appear to be taking place.

2 June 2009: Pari ran aground off St Jean Cap Ferrat, on Saturday 30th May, dragged on to the rocks at anchor by heavy winds during the night. Attempts to refloat her have been halted until an inspection of her hull has been undertaken. No one was reported injured.

As can be seen from the photos above, she has now been tethered to the rocks with some floatation devices at her bow and stern - or perhaps those are fuel containment barriers? No fuel was visible in the surrounding area.

The magnificent villa La Fleur Du Cap, that overlooks the waterfront, used to belong to Charlie Chaplin, then was owned by David Niven until his death in 1983.

Below, Pari last year in Cannes, in better times.

Moon Goddess

Moon Goddess

Yacht name: Moon Goddess
Length: 115 ft • 35 m
Year: 2006
Builder: Danish Yacht
Design: Espen Øino
Engines 2 x 3750 hp
Top speed: 45 knots

From the colour scheme you'll immediately recognise this as the tender/companion to Mexican megayacht Princess Mariana. Although the colours on the mother ship are not to everyone's liking, I think they really work on Moon Goddess. Mr Øino has designed a real jewel in this custom build from Danish Yacht, which is constructed from Kevlar, carbon fibre and epoxy, and was delivered in October 2006.
