    This is a powerful picture of Nourmahal.
    Look at the detail, the cowl vent in copper or bronze, the hosepipe, the anchor davits. A thousand and one detail that is plainly forgotten in sterilized modern boats.
    I love it, make my heart beat faster :)

    PS

    :) ‘‘Due to only 80 to 100 RPM of the quadruples steam expansion engines there is no vibration of the engines.’’ :)

    ‘‘Of all the large American-built steam yachts built between 1893 and 1930, the Delphine is the only one left in her original condition with her original steam engines still in service. It would be a terrible loss to the United States if a piece of history such as this were to be lost or destroyed.’’

    Gorgeous boats, indeed!

    dskira,
    the boat you posted looks quite similar to our King Alfonso XIII's Royal Yacht GIRALDA, originally owned by the british politician Hugo McCalmont, designed and built in 1894 by Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering Co. Ltd, of Govan.

    It's really easy to make a yacht of this size graceful and good looking. She's tad slow for her length too, running at .8 S/L ratio (12 knots). Magnificent example of her class though.

    Thank you Angel for the Delphine pictures.
    They did a great job.
    I think she is for sale.

    Absolutely.
    I think Hoyt mentioned that turbans do not do well with steam, :p
    but steam turbines yes they perform pretty well.
    I think, and that Richard has to confirm, the turbine can't be reversed, so an other set of turbine is necessary for reverse.

    Savarona was a steam turbine yacht.
