yachts

being in auckland down on the waterfront today i was reminded of just how many amazing and beautiful yachts there are in NZ, there are more classic timber yachts here than anywhere in the world i reckon, and there are plenty of amazing superyachts too. (that black catamaran is probably at least 35m too!)

the most amazing yacht was the Salperton, a 45m or 145" mega yacht, the size of the hardware on this beast was incredible, have a look at the guy on the dick near the boom and base of the mast and look at the size of those fabricated rigging fittings, also the self furling headsails, you can see anout 4 or 5 hydraulic hoses snaking into the forestays to control those headsails, its hard to imagine what that much bespoke, custom fabrication would cost.

you can charter her for a mere 145,000 euro per week! http://www.superyachts.com/yacht-charter/salperton-1556/
