Update: A nice shot from MYS 2008

Oct 2007: Launched only two months ago, Space, the first Feadship F45 Vantage, arrived in Port Hercule today. Her clean lines and good interior volumes, will, I think, make for a sure-fire winner in the increasingly crowded 45m semi-custom segment. Judge for yourself from the photos taken this afternoon.

Space will be presented by Feadship at the 2007 Monaco Yacht Show.

C-Quester 2 • CQ2

C-Quester 2

Submarine name: C Quester 2 • CQ2
Max depth: 50 m • 164 ft
Max speed: 4 knots, above or below the water
Length: 11 ft
Weight: 1.6 tonnes
Air supply: 2 1/2 hours + 36 hrs emergency supply.
Builder: U-Boat Worx

This surprisingly affordable Dutch-built two-person sub was on show at the MYS this year. At €174,000 ($246K) the C-Quester 2 can be yours for the price of a luxury sportscar. The one-man CQ1, which costs €94,000, is slightly smaller, weighs only one tonne, and is already being delivered to customers. The CQ2 pictured is Uboat Worx' own test model, and will be available spring 2008.

Pressure inside the capsule is set at one atmosphere, so no bothersome depressurization necessary - you can come up to the surface as fast as you like, with no fear of the bends. A four-day training course and an underwater pilot's licence is required, however.

The sub's batteries take about 12 hours to recharge and are plugged into a normal power supply. Could the CQ1 and 2 herald a new age of consumer submarine travel ?

MTU 4000

MTU 4000

This is the new MTU 4000 engine unveiled at the show last week. This 20 cylinder model produces up to 4,300 KW or 5,795 bhp rated power. As a replacement for the older 16 cylinder 595 series, it should deliver 10% greater fuel efficiency, while the 12 and 16 cylinder models also benefit from over 25% more power per cylinder.

The new engine is also slightly smaller - about half a metre lower - and about one tonne lighter. Though at just under 12 tonnes, if it fell on your foot, I don't believe you would notice the difference. Dimensions are 3.9 x 1.5 x 2.4 m. The new 4000 series is also cleaner than its predecessors and has improved turbocharger technology.

MTU seems to be the current market leader as engine supplier to large yachts.

Monaco Yacht Show 2007

Sunday: Another yacht show is over - most of the boats left today as quickly as they arrived. Photos to follow over the next week.

Saturday: Saint Nicolas and Sanssouci Star joined the party last night … I've started uploading larger photos

Friday: OK here's the first big photo of the show. If anyone can name all 70 odd yachts moored offshore in the shot I'll add the names to the photo…

MYS 2007 panorama

Thursday 7 pm: Another exhausting day at the yacht show ! I can't believe Monaco has ever been this busy. All car parks (and there are many) were full.

At one point, I was nearly jostled into the water by a pack of paparazzi, pursued by a pack of security guards in smart flannel suits. It was Prince Albert heading off for a tour of Alfa Nero. He sportingly posed for photos on deck with his host. To all those wondering where the large photos are - they will be coming soon !!

Thursday 10 am: The Nice Matin confirmed the mystery plane crash story in this morning's paper - see comment below for details.

Another clear blue sky for the show today. Major surprises so far were that Sarafsa and Lady Anne were on display. Alfa Nero is naturally getting the most attention.

Al Yamamah, the yacht originally intended for Saddam Hussein, was off-shore. I was told this was her first visit for over a decade.

Wednesday 7 pm: Just back from the show - I was told that a light aircraft went down in the sea this morning. No idea of casualties. This is completely unconfirmed…

Wednesday 11.30 am: Just seen this, a few hundred yards off-shore, from my balcony, many small craft converging around the smoke. A flare?

Wednesday: The port is now completely full. A little patience will be required until I get all the links and larger photos up and running !! Once all the smaller photos are up the larger ones will follow …

Monaco Yacht Show 2007

Monday: Most yachts have now arrived, including Alfa Nero, GiVi and Boadicea.


Sunday: The Monaco Yacht Show is revving up for the big opening on Wednesday - crews are busy scrubbing decks and suppliers uncrating deliveries for the boats and stands.

Half of the yachts arrived over the weekend - see below and here - squeezing past the classic yachts, who left on their final regatta to Nice, on Sunday.

The big guns, such as Alfa Nero, have yet to arrive in Port Hercule, but have been spotted in neighbouring ports.

This year the yacht show is able to use the full width of the central T jetty, for the first time, as all "local" yachts such as Lady Moura, Wedge Too and Sokar have moved over to the new port extension. So, it looks like this year's show is going to be even bigger than last year's.

The list of motor yachts exhibited can be found here.

monacoeye weather forecast: generally hot and sunny, with some hazing, and clouding over possible

The Monaco Yacht Show runs from the 19th to the 22nd of September 2007. Opening hours are from 10 a.m. to 6.30 p.m.

If you're coming to Monaco for the show, have a great week !

Cavendish White will be unveiling the latest range of super yachts, known as Leviathan Yachts, at the Monaco Yacht Show, which starts next week. This British company has joined forces with US-based Mega Yacht Group to build 45 to 150 metre yachts in China.

The first fruit of the collaboration, Project Midas, started steel cutting in July at the Nanhua High Speed Engineering facility. Built to Lloyds specifications and MCA compliant, the 68 metre Leviathan will be delivered in autumn 2009.

Models and plans of a range of Leviathan Yachts will be on display at Cavendish White's stand no: TQT17 during the show. Project Midas has a price tag of $53,000,000.

The plan above indicates a 67 m length and the name M/Y Casino Royale and then Millenium (on the yacht itself). Possibly simply for illustrative purposes.
