J Craft Torpedo

J Craft Torpedo - Neptune
Copyright: monacoeye • 2010 Monaco Yacht Show • Do not copy without permission.

Model name: J Craft Torpedo
Length: 41 ft • 13 m
Model year: 2009
Builder: J Craft
Architect: Södergren Yacht Design

Neptune, a Swedish-built J Craft Torpedo tender added a bit of colour to the Monaco Yacht Show.

This sky-blue Torpedo is called Neptune. It can reach speeds of 44 knots with its two Volvo Penta engines. At that speed it has a range of about 350 nautical miles.

Although reminiscent of wooden Rivas from the 1960s, with leather upholstery and inlaid wooden panelling, J Craft hulls are built from modern materials; vinylester and fibre glass with a PVC core.

J Craft were pleased to announce that they received an order for a new Torpedo, on the first day of the Monaco Yacht Show, and it will be delivered to the owner early 2011.

Pictured below, the dashboard of the white-hulled, Baccarat, the new top of the range Torpedo R line. The Torpedo R can reach speeds of 50 knots, with its Volvo IPS 600 system, and comes with matching luggage!

Alinghi 5

Alinghi 5

Yacht name: Alinghi 5
LWL: 90 ft • 27 m (LOA about 120 ft)
Built: Villeneuve, Switzerland
Architects: Rolf Vfroljik and Alinghi design team headed by Grant Simmer

Photo: LM • Genoa • September 2009

The new Alinghi 5 was flown down to Genoa from Geneva (over the Alps?!), suspended beneath a helicopter, after initial tests on Lac Leman. This shot was taken by Leandro at the Amico yard soon after it arrived. That's Azzurra II in front and Cuor di Leone behind.

As it stands, the 33rd America's Cup will see Ernesto Bertarelli's Alinghi team (Société Nautique de Genève) challenged by Larry Ellison's BMW Oracle team (Golden Gate Yacht Club) off the East coast of Australia in February 2010. Alinghi will be sailing their 90 ft sloop-rigged catamaran and Oracle sailing a similar-sized trimaran, BMW Oracle Racing 90.

Controversially, Alinghi's winches are electrically powered.

Given the insane amount of legal manoeuvring that has characterized this race, one can only assume the legal challenges are not yet over.

23 August 2009: And here is Slipsteam slipping past the Oceanographic Museum in Monaco today.

To those of you tuned in to TMS, Ponting's just been run out out by Freddie Flintoff … And immediately after Clarke went too! With 6 wickets to go, now, there'll be a few Aussie crew out there having a bit of an uncomfortable weekend, I should imagine!

Launched March 2009, Slipstream is the biggest superyacht from Cherbourg-based CMN to date. Custom Line 60 sistership Cloud 9 has now also been launched and a third sistership is under construction.

Yacht name: WY 130 • The Dream
Length: 130 ft • 40 m
Year: 2009
Builder: Wally
Design: Javier Soto Acebal
Interior: Foster & Partners

Photos: CS • Fano • April 2009

Here are the first shots of the launch of the new Wally 130 this week in Fano, Italy. This high performance yacht combines a water ballast with a trim-tab keel, for greater safety and performance. The 11 ton water ballast improves stability of this 84-ton boat while the 6 metre keel (which can be raised to 4 metres for port and bay access) improves lift.

The sloop will now be towed to Ancona to have the keel installed - the stepping of the mast is scheduled for May.

Should be on display at this year's Monaco Yacht Show.

Eclipse

Eclipse yacht
Photos copyright: KG/HLW/NH/monacoeye • Hamburg 2009-2010 • Do not copy without permission

Name: Eclipse
Length: 533 - 557 ft • 162 - 170 m ?
Year: 2009
Builder: Blohm & Voss • # 978
Design: Terence Disdale
Volume: 13000 GT?
Owner: Roman Abramovich

Exclusive Photos: Klaus Gaeth • Hamburg • June 2009 - July 2010
Exclusive Photos: HLW • Hamburg • September 2009
Exclusive Photos: Niels Hartmann • Hamburg • 20 June 2009

10 July 2010: Eclipse looks like she may be complete, from these latest photos of her leaving the port of Hamburg, sent in by Klaus a couple of days ago. Her tender has been fitted, angled funnels also fitted, and the mast section has been painted dark grey.

Notice she uses the same lifeboat-tender as Luna.

17 April 2010: A new excellent set of photos from Klaus taken yesterday in Hamburg (larger photos). Eclipse has reappeared with owner Roman Abramovich on board (you might just be able to make him out, grinning in this photo) and left Hamburg. Eclipse is reportedly due to arrive in Kristiansand in Norway any time now, for further sea trials.

The Times reported in November 2009 that Mr Abramovich was frustrated at Eclipse unlikely to be ready for the world cup in South Africa in two months’ time.

There are appears to be quite a lot of finishing work still to do on the boat, judging by the taped handrails and open lighting panels.

Eclipse eclipses Eclipse !

In the last two photos you will see another ship named Eclipse, behind the yacht Eclipse. That’s the new 122,000-tonne, 1040-foot cruise ship Celebrity Eclipse which has also just been launched and is due to set off on her maiden voyage!


September 2009: Great new photos from Klaus and HLW, showing Eclipse heading off on sea-trials. The name plate is now fitted, the hull is now white, funnels and sat masts have been fitted, work is progressing to the doors etc.


22 June 2009: In these superb new photos from Niels Hartmann, the scaffolding is back on Eclipse and much finishing work still needs to be done. It will be several months before delivery, with early 2010 touted as a likely hand-over date.

The bulbous bow currently doubles up as a duck slide for a sizeable group of mallards.


13 June 2009: Eclipse, the world's largest yacht, was launched yesterday 12 June 2009!

Here is an excellent set of photos from Klaus. She's out of the shed in Hamburg and looks … big.

Greenline Yacht Interiors, who fitted out "A" and are working on 141m MY Swift, are currently working on the interior for Eclipse.

At a reported 13,000 GT she is more than twice the volume of Sigma, but a little smaller in volume than Al Said. The project cost for Eclipse is reportedly about €340 million.
